FEAST is back by popular demand and this year promises to be even feastier. Last year, Mighty Meaty put together an awe inspiring run to the championship that we all remember as one of the greatest victories in sports history! In addition to the world class athleticism, there was also glow-in-the dark night frisbee, greased watermelons, beer pong, dance parties and much more that cannot be mentioned nor remembered.
This year's FEAST will be held on May 29-31 at Tiwi Beach and headquartered back at Swahili House, where we had such a great time last year. Monday, May 31st is Memorial Day for Americans and June 1st is Madaraka Day, so hopefully everyone has at least one of those days as a holiday.
As in year's past, teams will be organized to provide the greatest balance of skill levels based upon registration. This has worked out well the last three years and all games have been amazingly well matched.
More details regarding the format, rules, etc will be forthcoming.
As I mentioned, the HQ of the tournament will be Swahili House (http://www.swahilihouse.com/intro/intro.htm). There are a limited number (23) spaces available to stay for Saturday (29th), Sunday (30th) and Monday (31st) nights. The cost per person/per night will depend on the level of room, but will range from 3,000 KES to 5,500 KES (staff all inclusive, self-catering). Room choices and availability will be allotted on a first come first serve basis. To confirm your spot in the house, kindly email Kaarli at NOSPAMemail@example.com and provide a deposit of KES 6,000 to Kaarli. We expect the available spaces to go fast, so for those in Nairobi who want a spot they should bring cash on Friday or Sunday to our regular game.
Alternatively, Twiga Lodge (www.twigalodge.com), 100m down the beach from Swahili House, offers camping for which we don't need reservations (cost is 300 KES person/night - bring your own tent). They also have budget rooms available for KES 2,000/night and bigger rooms facing the sea, with breakfast, for KES 4,500/night. Contact +254 (0)721 577 614 to make reservations.
Other houses are available along the beach to rent: Contact Kenya Safari Homes for more information: http://www.kenyasafarihomes.com
Hope everyone can make it!
