‘Foursquare Night of Secrecy’ review

The first event for the Foursquare Appreciation Society was a huge success. The second event took place on Wednesday 15th September.
In case you missed it or left after The Book Club (I know it was a school night but come on!!) here’s what happened:

6:30pm – We all met at The Book Club (not a library but rather a cool London bar located in the heart of Shoreditch) and played a mini ping pong tournament in the wonderful table tennis zone they have. We had limited time so it was first to 5 points to advance to the next round. Loic Dumas won the tournament with a mix of gravity defying moves and speed.

8pm – The 2nd location was marked ‘SECRET’ on the invitation. I had arranged with City Limits Golf for us to occupy the top deck of the driving range. I checked-in at the driving range and tweeted using hashtags #4sqLDN and #4sqmeetup. Within 5 minutes, everyone had seen the  online updates and arrived.

On top of all this, we had got our very own ‘Check-in Here’ Foursquare flag printed onto mounted onto foamex (thanks to our friends at Select Canvas). David & I had to run out onto the driving range and tie the flag to one of the flag poles whilst looking over our shoulders to make sure no-one was firing their golf balls in our direction. The aim of the game was to hit the flag and in doing so, check-in!! Foursquare had become FORE!square!!

The night ended with drinks and a networking event at a studio I had helped to launch.
To see more photos from the night, Jonathan Choo has a nice album of photos on Facebook.

So what were your thoughts of the night?
What would you like to see us do in the future?
Does anyone have any interesting connections that could be linked to an event?
