The Gathering III - Final Thread

THREE DAYS! Woo-HOO!

PLEASE READ CAREFULLY, AS THERE IS NEW INFORMATION IN THIS POST.

OVER THE COURSE OF THIS WEEK: If you'd like, you can email me your cell phone number so that we can locate each other in the parking lot on Saturday. NOTE: PLEASE PUT YOUR BD USERNAME IN THE SUBJECT LINE OF YOUR EMAIL IF WE HAVE NOT COMMUNICATED VIA EMAIL BEFORE NOW. If you're not sure, do it anyway.

>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>

Can we have an informal count of people who plan on getting to the lot as soon as (or shortly after) the lot opens, so we can get an idea of how big a footprint we can carve out? Please respond in the comments.

>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>

Parking info: We will be gathering (get it?) in Gold Lot #2 which, if I'm not mistaken, opens at 11:00. The price for parking goes up after 12:30, IIRC .. we park at the far back right-side corner, close to the sidewalk, so we can put up the canopy (canopies are not allowed in the lot itself). The EARLIER you can get there, the better, as we can form a "Gathering" section / blockade.

GOLD LOT #2 (link) (Opens in new window)

There's an illustration in above link - park along BACK CORNER [lower left in the illustration] (southwest), next to North Shore Drive and Art Rooney Ave.

NOTE: I HOPE TO HAVE A "PIRANHA FISH" KITE FLYING FROM ONE OF THE CARS, TO MAKE IT EASIER FOR PEOPLE TO LOCATE / CONGREGATE

In my estimation, we're still in need of 1 more side dish (salad / slaw?)

And again, if you can bring a table or some chairs, that's a BIG help.

>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>

Charlie, Vlad, anyone else?

>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>

REMINDER: Sunscreen is a MUST!!!

>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>

EDITED TO ADD: I and the lovely Mrs. will be getting in sometime prolly early afternoon on Friday - if anyone wants to have dinner or drinks in the evening, hit me up.

LOOKS LIKE I WILL be attending the Friday night game, thanks to BD member Crusty, who has indicated he might be open to having dinner before the game. I know lfhlaw had mentioned being up for it, too - anyone else? We're also planning on having drinks somewhere after the game - I've already contacted Kristy R., and she's suggested SoHo as a place for that. Any other ideas / suggestions?

>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>

ADDED 7/15: Mrs. Cocktailsfor2 won't be attending The Gathering, but has expressed an interest in going to Sandcastle Water Park (opens in new window) on Saturday... If anyone else's spouse (or kids?) are interested, please leave a comment or shoot me an email.

>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>

I will have limited internet access beginning about 8pm Thursday, and the SBN app doesn't always load very well on my iPhone for some reason (it does eventually, but y'know...), so email or telephone will be the best way to get ahold of me (see above re: email addys and phone #s). You can also follow me on twitter, as I should be updating regularly from there, as well.
