Guy Fawkes Day

On November 4th, in the year of our Lord, 1605, an Englishman by the name of Guy Fawkes placed 30 kegs of gunpowder under the building where King James the 1st was to address the House of Parliament. Although the fuse was never lit, the event is well remembered in English history. To celebrate this historic occasion, we will throw a party and re-light the fuse with a game of intrigue. Each participant will be given a password which will identify them as a royalist or a rebel. During the party, the password can be slipped into ordinary conversation in an attempt to identify fellow team members. One of the rooms in the house will be the "Bomb Zone." When the bomb goes off, anyone in that room will be declared dead. The team with the most survivors wins. Only Guy Fawkes knows where the bomb is and the King will try to arrest as many rebels as possible. We will play about 3 rounds of the game during the evening.

When: Saturday, November 5th, 8:30 PM
Where: Call for SF location. Event limited to 30 participants.
Bring: English food such as "pasties," "bangers," "mash," "chips" or any baked, boiled or preserved item (fresh vegetables are prohibited) and English drink such as Bass ale or beer. Period costume or any style of English dress is encouraged but not required. No explosives please!

------------------ SPECIAL NOTICE ---------------------

Kill Your TV would like to thank the participants who helped with the massive clean-up of 500 demolished TVs on October 22nd. On Monday, a city street sweeper and a crew of six arrived with a Work 0rder authorizing a three-day clean-up. The job supervisor, after staring at a street which was cleaner than most in the city, declared "There must be some mistake." and then departed.

Also, the record for Most Emergency Vehicles, which had been held by the Los Angeles Cacophony Society since May 10, 1992 for their UFO Landing at Vista Del Mar has now been reclaimed by San Francisco. There are three requirements for an event to qualify for this dubious claim: 1.) No one is seriously injured. 2.) No damage to public or private property. 3.) No arrests.
