one more pillow fight

Close on the heels of the Ballard and the Cal Anderson Park fights, the Seattle Pillow Fight Club is calling one more fight for the season: this Saturday March 29th, 3:15 pm at Pike Place Market.
I haven't made it to any of the pillow fights, but permission to cut loose and and behave completely kid-like is very appealing! It would be pretty funny to see what the Market tourists make of it, too.

The deets from Brooke of the Seattle Pillow Fight Club:

DATE: Saturday March 29th RAIN OR SHINE. Don't be a wimp ;-)
TIME: 3:15pm
PLACE: Pike Place Market, corner of Pike and Pine.
IN THE STREET, in front of the place that throws the fish.



TELL EVERYONE ABOUT THE FIGHT. Bring as many people as you possibly can. A big fight is a GREAT fight! - CONCEAL YOUR PILLOW! Hide it in a backpack, a shopping bag, under your coat, etc. DO NOT go to the fight location and hang out with a pillow in your hand. Look busy: Pretend to shop, chat on the phone or with a friend, whatever, just don't be obvious. (If you see someone hanging out, with pillow in hand, discreetly suggest that they look busy and try to hide the pillow)

LISTEN FOR THE WHISTLE. I'll have to create a diversion in the street to allow the car to stop for us and give the cars that were in front of it time to move down the street to give us enough room to have the fight. Don't just start fighting because you see me in the street.

After 3 minutes, I'll blow the whistle again to stop the fight. STOP FIGHTING IMMEDIATELY AND WALK AWAY. Just like nothing ever happened ;-)

The Whiskey Bar (just in time for happy hour!)
2000 Second Ave. (206) 443-4490
Bring cash if you want to drink, because they don't accept credit cards.

Bring Friends
Tell people
Conceal Your Pillow
Don't Hit Anyone Without a Pillow (Very important!!!)
Watch Out for Cameras
If you come with a group, it's helpful to spread out before the fight and come running from different directions

I've never heard of the Seattle Pillow Fight Club before. Is this some kind of tradition?
I think this fight is suitable for women only. Not funny if the man fought with a pillow. Am I right?
