    RedsZone Gathering June 15-17

    It's still early, but I'm interested in making the trek to Cincinnati this year for the annual RedsZone gathering. Anything in the works?

    Not anymore.

    I had talked to a couple people about it (most out of towners) and they didn't appear to be too gung ho about paying for a plane ticket to Cincinnati to see this year's team. Can't blame them.

    I'm usually pretty busy with my kids activities in the summer, but most likely could find a weekend night to go see a game.

    I make a trip back to southern Indiana every summer anyway. I'd be interested in attending if the RedsZone gathering is in the same timeframe.

    Are they as feisty in person as they can be in the anonimity of cyberspace?

    I simply don't have access to a "cares about RBI" place in my psyche. There is a "mildly curious about OBI%" alcove just before the acid filled lake guarded by robot snipers with lasers which leads to the "cares about RBI" antechamber though. - Nate

    All seriousness now, I think the best ones are the one's you can make up at the last minute. Like, if Kitty didn't buy season tickets, she could have had the RedsZone gathering in the Cheap Seats. Cyclone sat in scouts seats.

    Or, just toss an announcement here. For instance say the following -

    Hey, I'm headed down to the April 5th Businesspersons Special - anybody want to hook up and talk baseball or have soda/beer at the Machine room?
    It's cool like that.

    That way creek isn't stuck with a bunch of tickets.

    I don't have that kind of drawing power. I was hoping to hitch my wagon to an existing planned event.

    Bail was finally made. But I don't plan'em.... I just attend them.

    But I'm hoping that something will be set up this year. They have always been fun in the past. It's always fun to meet "out of towners". The two-game affair in 2005 was a HUGE success.

    If no one else shows up, then let me know the date(s) Johnny and I'd love to get together with you for a game.

    If creek does the planning then it is sure to be a huge success. She works for the government and can set up Homeland Security for the event.

    Point taken.

    And, I'd prefer weekday games. But, don't plan around me. Maybe we can do two. One during the weekend and one during the week.

    I have never attended any RZ gathering because I am afraid folks will find out that I am (if you can believe it) actually a very boring person.

    But I'll give it a shot this year. My schedule is a little tough though- I work a lot of Saturdays- but if there is one on a weekend day at a bar downtown, then I would try to make it.

    Re: RedsZone Gathering?

    Well since it appears that I might actually live through the summer, I would be willing to pull something together, but I really don't want to do the *maybe I'll come* ticket thing.

    I'm at work <gasp> and probably will be until late Tuesday, but on Wed, I'll set up a poll with all the home weekend games and we can come up with a date.

    That work for you all?

    Creek. I haven't been to one of these (I'd love to, but...I'm far away).
    However, I did follow the "poll" process last year and from what I gather, the whole thing didn't work out that well.

    My 2 cents. If someone is going to organize this, well...THEY are the boss. They pick the week and games and pretty much set the schedule. Everyone else can either come along for the ride or stay home.

    Democracy works for a lot of things. Event planning ISN'T one of them.
