Okay, we’ve discussed it a few times and many of you have given me preliminary notice that you’d like to attend. Time to make it official.
The first annual Redleg Nation Get-Together at GAB will take place on August 28, 2010. It’s a 7:10 game vs. the hated Chicago Cubs. I have reserved a block of tickets in the Moon Deck for that game. Each ticket is $20; the Reds cut the price of each individual ticket for us a bit. I hope we can plan a place to meet before the game, for those that wish to do that.
Everyone is welcome to join us, and I think it will be fun getting to know each other away from the computer. However, I need you to confirm your interest now by emailing me at firstname.lastname@example.org; use the subject line “RN Get-Together” or something similar to that. Tell me how many tickets you need, I will confirm, and we can then discuss how to make the exchange.
Also, we get a 45-character scoreboard message. I want you to help me figure out the best message to use.
If you email me, it’s going to be official this time. I need to know as soon as possible, so I will know if I need to try to get more tickets.
Looking forward to it!
Blame Chad for creating this mess.
