Come to #Vancouver’s Largest Water Fight at Stanley Park on Aug 9 Everyone’s invited. Spread The Word! http://ow.ly/zYTVA
1. This is a water fight – don’t bring any other weapons apart from water pistols. Water bombs/ballloons are messy so you will be required to clean up yourself. Littering is a crime and we love out planet.
2. We are not going to be your parents, nor are we going to be the police. If you see someone doing something stupid, tell them to stop. If you’re doing something stupid, don’t. You’re going to ruin it and this has the potential to be a massive laugh.
3. Dress for the occasion, you’re going to get WET! Shorts, bikinis, flippers, floaty arm bands, giant shark costume… whatever?
4. Don’t terrorize bystanders – if they want to get involved, let them. This is an open invitation.
5. Don’t bring cameras unless they are waterproof. They’re going to get wet and don’t come complaining when they don’t work. There will be plenty of other people around devoted to taking pictures, there always is.
6. This is just for fun, don’t take it too seriously – and don’t beat each other up over it (close up shooting and all that).
7. Don’t leave any mess behind! We want to leave the place in the same way we found it. Pick up your trash and don’t damage anything.
8. Don’t bring any water pistol that looks just like a real gun… we do not want a visit by the Vancouver Police.
9. Please try not to use more water than you have to – preserve your supplies. Remember, there could be a water ban this summer.
10. If anyone asks who is organizing it, well it happened to be in the same place at the same time. Amazing, isn’t it?
11. Please do not get naked anywhere at any point of time. You could be arrested.
12) No dyed water – it stains clothes and it could stain the pavements. This is considered vandalism.
13. Spread the word about the event!
