The Do Stuff Group

July 19, 2010 at 11:43 am 8 comments

I just joined a great group on Facebook.  My friend Sarah invited me to this local group dedicated to making sure that the summer doesn’t end with regrets.  You know the ones that I am talking about… the end of summer arrives and you ask yourself: ‘What did I actually do with my free time?’ or ‘Why didn’t I get outside and enjoy the nice weather?’  Well, this Uptown Saint John group called The Do Stuff Group will help you fill in great answers to these important questions.

Under info on this group, creator Jody Kliffer says:
Having survived the winter, it’s time for us to get together and enjoy the summer! I thought it would be a good idea to try to get people together every other week or so and do fun stuff together. We could make collective decisions on what “activity” we would want to do for the weekend and get together to do stuff. Some ideas from others that I’ve spoken about this have included soccer, ball hockey, hiking, camping, fishing, Ultimate Frisbee, dodge ball and soccer baseball. Whatever we decide to do, it would just be nice to get some exercise, hang out with friends, and have some fun.

So far the group has 58 members and plans weekend excursions on the group wall.  They usually convene on Saturday afternoons and try and find a variety of places to accomplish their activities.  To date (with 5 separate outings) the group has: played soccer-baseball and dodgeball in Seaside Park on the lower west side, went hiking in the Irving Nature Park, played soccer and tennis at Shamrock Park.  

FYI: This coming weekend, plans are in the works to get out and play ball-hockey somewhere in the city! 

If you are in the mood for some outdoor fun, I highly recommend that you check out and join this group on Facebook.  Who knows, you just might get to revisit those carefree days of youth with an activity that you haven’t even thought of playing in years. 🙂

    Hey I just clicked on the link and it only brings me to facebooks home page rather than the group page. When trying to search for the do stuff group I don’t find one for saint john.

    Did they delete the group?

    It sounds like a fabulous initiative and I’d really like to take part in it.

    Hmmm… that is interesting. I will look into this.
    The group definitely does still exist, so I am not sure why you can’t find it with a search.

    I fixed it! The link now works… and here it is again, just in case.

    Hey UptownGirl – thanks for the spotlight on The Do Stuff Group! This past Saturday we had a lovely little tennis match (we had to relocate from Shamrock to M. Gerald Teed due to a tournament) in the sunshine, and I’m looking forward to ball hockey next weekend!

    Have fun doing stuff!
