Hello Former (& hopefully future) Olympians, Community Junkies, and Potluck Pals:
I hereby light the torch for this fall’s Group House Olympics.
Now in its’ fourth gathering, the GHO brings community-minded folks together for friendly competition between group houses across the DC metro area. This fall’s Games will run from Saturday, October 18 to Sunday, November 9. During these three weeks, participants will gather at events hosted by each house. Yes, there are medals. The podium is secondary to having fun, getting to know each community, and developing relationships that last beyond the Games.
Are you fired up and ready to go? Register your house by Sunday, October 5.
Never participated in the GHO or don’t know what it is? It’s open to anyone and easy to participate:
1. Read this handy dandy flyer: http://bit.ly/WhatIsGHO
2. Register your house (or just yourself if you don’t live in group house): http://bit.ly/GHOfall14Register
3. After you register your house, fill out the http://bit.ly/GHOfall14EventDoodle
We hope to see you all for the Opening Ceremonies Potluck and Event on Saturday, October 18 at Noon.
a BIG PS. Please forward this email to others (houses and individuals) that you think would be interested. Let’s widen our circles to include more families, communities of color, and DC area native residents.
