The Gathering IV - The Directions, The Arrival, The Event

All righty, gang - TOMORROW'S THE DAY!!!

I hope you're all ready for it, because it's going to be AWEsome!

Gold Lot #2 - I've found a cool website that'll allow you to type in your address and get step-by-step directions!

Ballparks of Baseball dot com - opens in new window

If the above link doesn't work for you (I've checked it on my iPad and it works for me, but hey...), use your search engine to find

The lots typically open at noon - anyone that wants to get there early and get in line, that's dandy. The more people that get there early, the more space we can stake out for ourselves!

Once in the Lot, head to the FAR BACK RIGHT CORNER NEAREST PNC - the corners of West General Robinson St and Tony Dorsett Dr.

If you are arriving later in the afternoon, or are having trouble finding the mob, you can call me - if you don't have my number, shoot an email with your cell number to the address on my profile - MAKE SURE YOU PUT YOUR BUCS DUGOUT USERNAME IN THE SUBJECT LINE, OR I WILL IGNORE/MISS IT. Also note - if you call me during the day, it may take me a few minutes to answer or get back to you - sometimes the music's loud, or I'm mixing a cocktail or summat.

Also, if anyone needs to reach me today or early tomorrow, the best way to do so (in descending order): Phone. Text. twitter. email.

We will be grillin' and drinkin' and playin' and shootin' the shit all day long, so if you're not ready for fun, well...I can't help you.




If you can, bring some ice - if you have a cooler, great, or bring a bag or two to dump into the existing coolers


Remember to bring a chair. If you have an extra one or two, please bring 'em.

We could still use a TABLE OR TWO

Umbrellas / Canopies - if you have one, please consider bringing it - you can always leave it in your trunk if it turns out we don't need it, but the weather report for tomorrow is SUNNY, HOT, NO CLOUDS, MID-80's. Anyone who was at The Gathering I will remember how incredibly hot it was - all day in an asphalt parking lot... sweltering!

If you can think of anything else that'd be fun, necessary, drinkable or edible - BRING IT!

Otherwise, see you all tomorrow! BE READY TO HAVE FUN!

Lastly,, a few recs to get this up top where err'body can see it would appreciated.
