    Oh yeah, and I also don't really care who they play or where the seats are. We will be annoying no matter where we sit.

    If June is out, I vote for May 30-31 vs. the Braves.

    Also, can we post a link to this thread on the baseball forums?

    I'll be in Cincinnati in July for Barry Larkin's induction weekend, so let me know if anyone wants to get together. (It's my late birthday present! I'm so excited!)

    I'm not missing that game either, SB. Is it July 19th? If so, my season ticket package includes that game.

    Re: Gathering 2008?

    Last year it worked this way. Creek was organizer/dictator and laid down the law.
    She set the dates, meeting place/time for drinks, got a block of seats and collected the money from those who wanted them.
    If you could make it...welcome...if not...well, the REDS play every year.

    My feeling is that there can be no democracy in these things or it doesn't get done.

    So, if not Creek (who I really hope is ok)...we'd need a volunteer to become RZ Gathering 2008 Overlord.

    How about it? Anyone? ...Bueller?

    I'd love to do one of these again. My weekends are booked with rehearsals and shows though from July through October, but I'm good through June.
    My dad got to enjoy 3 Reds World Championships by the time he was my age. So far, I've only gotten to enjoy one. Step it up Redlegs!

    I have a United Airlines round-trip voucher that I need to use before fall. This might be just the occasion to do it.

    Just gas up and hit the road. It's not that far. I've done that run quite a bit in the last few months. You get to see all kinds of scenic places along the way. How could you pass up on the opportunity to pass through Arkansas, Tennessee, and Kentucky on one trip. That's redneck central right there. It doesn't get any better than that.

    I like to drive, so it's more tempting than you'd probably guess.

    Mrs. U has informed me that if I drove it I'd be making that 20-hour drive by myself. Plus, it'd probably cost me at least $200 for gas for the round trip.

    You might want to double that.

    I guess you're right.

    My car gets about 20 miles to the gallon and has a range of about 360. Google Maps says it's about 1350 miles to drive from my zip code to my parents' zip code. 2700 miles/360 miles is 7.7 fillups. The most I've spent to fill it is $55, which is almost certainly low for the trip, since gas here is always cheaper than it is there. $55 x 7.7 = $423.50. That's a lot of $$$ for a trip I don't have to make.

    Very true. Somebody needs to do the legwork and make some final decisions. If nobody can/will, I'll try and help out.

    Re: Gathering 2008?

    Whatever date you people decide on I'll be there, unless it's the first week of July. We'll be gone on vacation. But somebody has to babysit you out-of-towners.

    But you're going to have to find someone locally, other then creek, to be the point person. I don't think she's been on the forum for ages.

    I personally nominate Chip or Kitty. Or maybe both together.

    My van gets about 20 mpg but I'm also running diesel which costs more. It's not a cheap run, but if you consider that when I run from San Antonio to Ohio I'm usually making $1500 gross for the trip, it's not so bad. And it really is a nice drive. Arkansas and Tennessee can be quite scenic at the right time of year. These days though, if you're not getting paid to make the drive, flying might be cheaper.
