Is the Eastside the only destination for Perky Points? Venice begs to differ!!

Don’t be fooled by Venice’s stereotypical freewheeling, devil-may-care attitude.  The Westside takes Perky Points very seriously!

Much like Glassell Park’s league, Westside dodgeball teams also joined last season’s Perky Points revolution.  While many of the rules and perks remained the same, Venice put their own unique spin on the Yacht Club’s newest feature.



Every week after dodgeball, teams pulled their exhausted bodies to their favorite hangout for some “bar shenanigans.”  Perky Points were not only awarded to teams with the most players in attendance but also for winning various bar games, including “Potato You Glad I Have a Banana,” in which teammates knocked potatoes around using only their hips and dangling bananas (sounds like my ideal Saturday night), and another involving balancing marshmallows on walrus tusk-esque plastic straws called “I Am the Walrus.”  Coo coo ca choo.

As we expand to new parks and grow our free programing for kids, we’re looking, asking and in some cases even demanding for you get more involved as we move forward and take the next step in The Yacht Club’s evolution.
