Dear Sean, My school is having some trouble with four square. (every one is making rules that dont make sense such as punch-u-l8tr and fire-in-the-house!) My school is called Stevenson Elementary School in Mesa,AZ 85208. I would love it if u could come and give a speech or send a letter to the school with a list of the rules that we can tape near all the 4-Square courts. Thank you 4 your time. Wesley T, 8/1/2010

In 1790, the first patent in U.S. history was issued to Samuel Hopkins of the great state of Vermont.* In honor this momentous occasion, we'll be playing 4-square this Sunday, 8/1, at the corner of Summer and Craigie in Somerville, from 1 to 3.


*If anyone can explain to me how a man in Pittsford, VT, got the first patent in U.S. history when Vermont didn't become a state until 1791, drop me a line.

In order to commemorate this occasion, we'll be playing 4-Square on the corner of Summer and Craigie in Somerville, this Sunday the 25, from 1 to 3. Bring your friends.
