Join TAP-Chicago for a fun-filled night of coed flag football…in the snow! (But with my luck, it’s going to be nice, sunny, and only slightly chilly.) We made a few changes to the rules. These rules are designed to facilitate a fun, female friendly game, and a good workout. Please ask if anything is unclear. (more…)
