No daughters allowed? Oh right, its science. We don't want girls doing science. Guess those dad's without sons are SOL!

Anon 11:20, you're an ignorant brain dead, dimwitted bum! Shake a Leg is beyond reproach. They provide many, many, many venues for both girls & boys as does many private and government programs related to kids; girl scout cookies, Mother & Daughter themes - - - - etc., etc., etc.. And at this event you'll see many daughters, wife's & single females enjoying themselves. Why not attend to do a reality check before opening your mouth to change your foot?

Dear 9:26
This is an event at Shake a Leg that is sponsored by "one Grove Foundation". It says "Father and Sons". If females are invited, then it should say so. Please don't insult me when I am only responding to what I read. Since you seem to be the authority on this event, would you mind explaining to me how this event is open to everyone when it is titled "Fathers and Sons". Perhaps the invite could have been clearer or I should be clairvoyant! Also, what on earth makes you so angry? I didn't insult Shake a Leg or One Grove Foundation. I was only commenting on any activity that excludes such a large population of people, namely females. If it was an exclusion of race, people would be up in arms. Because its an exclusion of gender, people look another way. I'm glad to hear that this event will be open to everyone. You could have found a nicer way to tell us that. I think, though, that you should let "One Grove Foundation" know that this is no longer a one gender event. I will be by to see that this is an all inclusive activity. Hope to see you there! Wear your "I love to call people mean names because they express an opinion different than mine" t-shirt so that I can identify you.
