    Re: RedsZone Gathering?

    A Saturday night game would be cool.

    Here's a link to the schedule:

    http://cincinnati.reds.mlb.com/sched...cin&m=6&y=2007

    June would be ideal, but the tickets will probably be hard to come by, since the opponents are CLE, TEX, and STL. The Cardinals game on June 30 would be great.

    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.

    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.

    I'm down for a Saturday night game.

    I could get a hotel room, and go to the Sunday game as well.

    Of course not - i know you'll be out there after the game we go to. I'm more talking pre-game, late late night festivities.

    That one last year really worked out well, didn't it Kitty?

    I think there's only one day game on Saturday so there's a lot of choices.

    And for those of you who want to go during the week, there's always a few of us who can get together on short notice. Just let us know when you'll be in town and we'll see what we can do.

    As someone who has had to plan such events in the past. I agree. Event planning is a dictatorship. Tell them when, where, what. Once they get there, distract them with bread and circuses.


    I wouldn't mind coming down and meeting some redszoners for a Reds game, but I'm booked through July 26th, going through what Caveat went through last summer. Maybe if I swing some tickets for a game later in the season, I'll post a message to see if anyone is game.

    I third this.
    What if this wasn't a rhetorical question?

    All models are wrong. Some of them are useful.

    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.

    I want to come. I'm just doubtful once again this year. I still owe Alfred a trip to see the White Sox play. Not sure I can do both.

    HOWEVER, once the timing is decided ... I agree with the dictatorship idea. A poll to gauge interest is one thing, but once that's out of the way ...

    Good luck, Yachtzee.
