Rope on, Punk! Punk Rope is a team activity that is a “cross between recess and boot camp, which blends rope jumping, fitness games, and creative calisthenics.” Sounds too fitness-y for you? Think again. This isn’t just any athletic field day. No, no. There are rubber chickens involved. Yes, rubber chickens, used in the 1-on-1 Rubber Chicken Toss and the Rubber Chicken Relay. Other items on the agenda include Punk-Ups, Spoons, and Double Unders. There is also an activity reminiscent of day-camp color-wars – writing a Team Fight Song (try to think beyond “We’ve got spirit yes we do, we’ve got spirit how about YOU!”).
The Punk Rope Games will take place Sunday, June 24 from 10AM – 1PM, rain or shine, at the William Sheridan Playground between Wythe Ave & Berry St and Grand St & South 1st St here on our very own turf, Williamsburg. Teams must consist of 4 members, so choose your teammates wisely – nobody wants dead weight during the Long Rope. And like any competition, there will be crowned winners and an accompanying Awards Ceremony/After Party at Crown Victoria Bar (60 S. 2nd St between Kent & Wythe Ave) from 1:30PM – 4PM, with food & drink specials for competitors and fans alike.
So gather up your fittest friends, start writing that victorious Team Fight Song, and register for the 4th Annual Punk Rope Games! May the odds be ever in your favor.
