The Great Choose Your Own MANHUNT… Part II

The Great Choose Your Own MANHUNT… Part II
The people have spoken, and they have said “WESTMOUNT, WESTMOUNT, WESTMOUNT”. It was mildly creepy, and only reinforcing my theory that Westmount is secretly ruling the world. And so, with great pleasure I announce our next event:
When: August 17th, 17h.
Where: WESTMOUNT (park), WESTMOUNT (park), WESTMOUNT (park)
Check out the map, show up, and we will chase each other around like the wild Westmount pigeon chases its prey, the humble Westmount crumb.
See you then,
-Die MANHUNT Masse

The Great Choose-you-own-MANHUNT!

When: Sat, Aug 16th, 17h
Where: well… who can say?

What’s better than Manhunt? Well nothing, everyone knows that. But, what might be better than our normal m.o. is this: We want to have another park game this week, but we’re not sure where, so we’re turning to you guys for your opinion:

Unfortunately, McGill gave us a little bit of a hard time, as there’s construction going on all over campus. This leaves us with a couple choices for park in the downtown/plateau area:

Lafontaine Park (Green): Our usual greeny haunt
Mount Royal Park (Blue): A bit more of a foresty terrain
Laurier Park (Red): Kind of… well a mix I guess… but so is Mount Royal really
Westmount park (orange): hills and trees and ducks, oh my!

So post your vote here, on facebook, or email us before Tuesday and we’ll announce our location on Wednesday.

Until then, happy huntin’!

So guys, here’s the deal…. Our next game is gonna be a big one – I’m moving away, the summer’s coming to a bitter end, and it’s time we show the world what a manhunt means… again…
As such we’re going to get you guys a little involved: In the next day or two we’ll be posting a survey online for you guys to pick your favourite park for our next game. (The delay is only because I’m waiting for permission from McGill to see if they’re cool with it. They’re private property and all, you see…)
So come and vote (the address will be posted in a message i’ll send), and then we shall rejoice!

Happy huntin’!

The Spectacularious Fantantansical Manhunt Extravalarium Re-enactment!

When: July 19th, 17h00
Where: Crescent and Rene Levesque (a.k.a. the big martini glass)
Largest Cardboard Box Ever Constructed: 10.04 m (length) x 4.02 m (width) x 2.2 m (height) (by Smurfit Kappa Van Dam Golfkarton B.V)

That’s right folks – come one, come all to this week’s super special edition of manhunt, in which we shall re-enact a very special event – the very first manhunt EVER!… have we already done this?

According to legend, it all started many years ago… or three… when the very first manhunters – our good friends Adair and Phil, collected a group of innocent people to run amok, trying to tag one another in a mystical game of hide-and-seek-tag. Since then, every other week – seasonal weather permitting – we have honoured this tradition…

And so… well you know how it goes 😉

We’ll be playing downtown right in the heart of tourist central – let’s give them a show, eh?

See you all there, and happy huntin’

For those who didn’t make it to the street festival, and for those who did and want to do it again.
We shall venture through the streets with our orange armbands and do what Manhunters do best: run, hide and have fun.

See you there!

La Frénésie du MANHUNT

WHEN: Saturday, June 21, 17h
WHERE: Carré St Louis, next to the gazebo (see map below)

There is a tradition in the world of MANHUNT Montreal that we like to… well… do.
Every year the St Laurent merchants’ association organizes a weekend (or two) of street fairing and terasse sangriationing on the Main, and every year we like to add a little twist to it by making sure a slight chaos reigns for just one hour on the appropriate Saturday afternoon.

The time has come for us to carry on this tradition…

Well the time hasn’t come yet, really…

But it’s coming… In fact, it will arrive in just 4 days, 17 hours, and counting… I mean I’m not counting… But there’s a thingy on my facebook profile page that is… I really just stole the time from there… I’m sorry… kinda… ok I’m over it.

So come one come all… or at least many… if everyone came we’d run out of armbands… and enjoy the game the way it was meant to be played… ok at least one way it was meant to be played… among a ridiculous crowd up the Main!

Happy Huntin’
– The MANHUNT peeps

MANHUNT: Park Edition

Hello hunters!
Quick info:
When: 20h15, June 7, 2008
Where: Parc Lafontaine (Meet at the bridge in the middle)
Highest jump by a pig ever recorded: 27.5” (by Kotetsu)

Apologies for the slightly late invite – my time was split upon my landlord demanding of me a most heinous… umm… thing.… I had to clean my basement… and that is *not* a euphemism.

Anyway – back to the topic at hand, which is this weekend’s super awesome fantastic version of MANHUNT. This week, and this week alone… and maybe another week later… we will be playing our favourite game in PARC LAFONTAINE.

That’s right – you read me correctly: it’s time for

MANHUNT: in which a large number of adults run around trying to catch each other while onlookers watch with both fear and arousal.

We’ll be playing the game a little bit later this week, mainly to allow us to enjoy a little bit of the dark. The sun will be setting at 20:40, so let’s meet at 20h15 (which translated to 8:15pm in American :P) – we’ll have one game in the sun and one in the not sun.

And finally, just to make things all worthwhile, upon completion of said game we shall drink to the gods of MANHUNT, whoever they may be, at the Quincaillrie, which may or may not be the correct name of a bar that may be found on Rachel near the Park (and is highly recommended by Amy, who is almost certainly one of the gods to whom we will be drinking).

À Samedi! (which translates to “Until Saturday” in American)

Oh – our map is now 1nt0Ract1v3. This means that anyone from ANYWHERE IN THE WORLD can see where it is… We’re just one step closer to becoming an olympic sport!
(Trasnlation: I’m totally procrastinating now….)

When: Sat, May 24, 17h00
Where: Place des Arts – right on the steps
Why: ….. why not?

For all the new people who have recently joined our ranks, there is a little tradition that Montreal has every year to show respect to the Manhunter of our little town. First, certain individuals are specially selected based on how many patches they have on their jacket. Those with the most and the biggest patches are allowed then to re-enact the game in car-form in what we call the “Grand Prix”, which is French for “Manhunt”.
This year, the Grand Prix will be taking place in two weeks, which means that means that this week, on May 24th, will be the pregrandprix Manhunt game. Perhaps the most important game of the season, it is reported that you should “be there” or you may “be square”.

We’ll be playing aroud PdesA, and we’ll meet right on the steps facing St Cat’s. (See the map below)

Till then, happy huntin’

Where: The Old Port! Meet in front of the Centaur Theatre – 453 St François Xavier, south of Notre Dame O. (Closest metro: Places-d’Armes)

When: Sat, May 10th, 17h00

Who: More than 50 people ready to run around the streets like a bunch of rabid chipmunks with roid rage!!

This one is gonna be short and sweet guys – the invite not the game, that is. We’ve got a HUGE crew that’s joined our ranks thanks to our little CTV appearance, so this Saturday we’re looking at record numbers…. (boo-yah!) We’ll be playing on May 10th in the old port – we figured we’d hit up the area this year before the tourists made it a little too difficult – not to mention wedding photo shoots for those of you who were there last year 😉

We’ll meet up in front of the Centaur Theatre (453 St François Xavier ) – just follow the map… and if you can’t follow the map… then you’re not allowed to play… or at least you don’t deserve to 😛
See you guys there, and happy huntin!
