The $3 Bills started as a casual conversation on a Football Sunday after a River City Sport and Social League game. The idea to form an All Gay sports team seemed far fetched, but with a fair amount of recruiting, posting on Craigslist and talking people over drinks, we formed the $3 Bills in the Spring of ’08.
Since that time we have become more than just an “All-Gay” sports team. Solid friendships have been forged as well as a commitment to being productive within our community – both the Gay Community and the Richmond area in general. Having celebrated our 1 year anniversary recently, we are still going strong and in the midst of two sports seasons as this is written.
We have participated in Football, Kickball, Dodgeball, Broomball and Volleyball to date, as well as organizing and hosting the Gay for a Day 5K that kicked off last year’s Pride Festival. The 5K helped raise money for ROSMY, Equality Virginia and Gay Pride Virginia. Having just shy of 100 runners, we are anticipating an even bigger turnout this year.
We are also hosting the $3 Bills Presents Musicians for ROSMY on April 24th at Babes. We also currently volunteer with ElderHomes, Meals on Wheels, Freedom House and Friends of the Homeless.
One of the most inviting aspects of the Bills is the welcoming vibe and feeling of belonging to a team. We don’t care how athletic or non-athletic you may be, the focus is on enjoying good friends, good times, fun sports and being active in the community together. There’s a sport every season and we are always looking for new Bills, both players and fans!
There are plenty of opportunities to meet the Bills coming up! Look for us at the GPV Gay Date Auction on April 25th, as well as Bills Anniversary Party to be held at Nations in the next few weeks. It’s a great opportunity to come out and meet the team. Details to follow, read our blog!
