Winter is coming...so what better time to head south for a weekend? With that in mind, we are pleased to announce the Barbarian Shanghai Soccer Social trip in January!
We actually floated the idea a while back, and a good number of you have already signed up. For those who haven't, please note that this is a Barbarians social activity first and foremost. It is meant to be fun and to help us bond as a team.
Charles has done a fantastic job organizing all the logistics, including the flight (at dirt cheap prices), hotel (Man United's exclusive Shanghai digs), bus transport in Shanghai (with real certified drivers), and two friendly matches against Shanghai expat teams.
A big thanks to Charles for his Herculean efforts. And since this trip simply wouldn't be happening without him, Charles will serve as our Chairman, Manager, and Captain, play in his preferred position, and choose the team's formation and tactics for each match. He may choose to sell his titles and powers to the highest bidder, or he may choose to rule like a dictator. In other words, Charles is the boss.
We do have enough confirmed participants to field a full squad of 11, but we definitely have room for more. Even if you're injured or working hard on getting out of shape over the winter, you're still more than welcome -- whenever we're not on the pitch there will be plenty of eating, drinking, and making merry.
If you haven't signed up and still want to go, please contact Carlos ASAP.
