Tomorrow is the big day!

I wanted to let you know, you are more than welcome to come tomorrow evening. I just did the list thing to help me keep track of how many people we might have. It also helps those setting on the fence if they see who else might be there.

As of now we have upto 28 people that have expressed at least some interest in attending. The actual number will most likely be in the 16 - 18 range, but that will the biggest group we have had to date.

I left the directions, with a phone number, the basic guidlines for want of a better term & list of those that might be there.

I want to say this again. Just because you are new here or read more than you post you are still welcome. The only requirement is you be a basketball fan. If your name is not on the list below that's fine too. All that means is you will be a surprise guest & those are always the coolest.

I'm really looking forward to seeing everyone tomorrow.

Castleton Pizza King

The Briggsy's Pizza King is located at 82nd street & Center Run Drive, just east of the Castleton Square Mall. I've noticed they have added a sign at the entrace to the parking lot on Center Run Drive.

The restaurant is in a free standing building in the middle of a parking lot.

If you were standing at the entrance you would be looking east & would see Hooters.

To the south is the Red Lobster

To the north is Burlington Coat Factory

There is a rather large billboard directly over the top of the building. It is rather easy to find, but if you feel you need more info please feel free to call. The Briggsy's Pizza King phone number is 577-4040.


1. Everyone that reads this forum is invited.

2. If you have mentioned you will be there & can't make it, no biggie. If you show up out of the blue, then you will be a surprised guest & thats always fun.

3. I only listed a start time as a general rule of thumb. If you want to arrive a few minutes early & try to outlast Peck, Uncle Buck & myself, good luck.

If you want to arrive late & just stay for an ice cold Dr. Pepper, that's fine too.

If someone brings a camera I did receive permission photos are ok from the sculptor. :dance:

I'd like to shout out a thanks to Jose for setting these meets up. I appreciate him taking out time in his personal life to do this for us.

It looks like another possible first with two to possibly three females in attendance. :)

Hicks, after you are there maybe 10 minutes at the most you will say to yourself, why was I nervous and why did I not come to one of the prior forum parties. If that is not the case, tell me and I'll pay your way tomorrow night


Edit: did anyone save the photos from the forum party last November ?

If I can delay my arrival at Conner Prairie, then I may be able to make an appearance. Doubtful, though.


Why not offer to take the little lady out for dinner before the show..... hint hint hint.

Well, I just found out I have to work tomorrow. :(

But only until about 4:00 or so. ;) So I should be there. :)

You better not no-show, Hicks. :mad: :p

I have to work tomorrow... :(

If Hell freezes over, I'll be there. I'm supposed to get off work at 8, but I never get off work on time :mad: (plus it takes an hour and 20 minutes to get to Indy)...

Last November we were outside talking until 12:30 AM. The place closes at 10:00, they finally kicked us out about 10:30.

So I would expect us to stay until about the same time again.

If last time is any indication the best discussions don't start until about 10:00 anyway

This might be useful to you.....

well I hope you have a great time, sadly enough I won't be able to make it, after carefull considerations it was decided that to spend the airfare and hotel cost for eating a pizza with you lot would be somewhat "overdone" , I'll order in instead and think of you guys :D

Suaveness
07-10-2004, 01:28 PM
Jose, quick question. Will 8 bucks be enough to cover my cost for the pizza? :blush:

Jose Slaughter
07-10-2004, 02:17 PM
Sure, but you'll have to drink warm water. :p

Hicks
07-10-2004, 03:36 PM
Jose, I'm thinking about showing up earlier than 6. When will you be there? (I'm an hour away so I want to time it to be there after you are)

Jose Slaughter
07-10-2004, 04:26 PM
I'm planning on getting there around 5:30

Hicks
07-10-2004, 04:28 PM
OK then I will try to be there between 5:30-5:45ish

Natston

I have decided that if I can leave Seymour before 10, I'll try to make a parking lot cameo... :idea:

Jose Slaughter
07-10-2004, 04:44 PM
Now that is impressive!

You're gonna drive all the way from Seymour & NOT get pizza!

You must be stoned. :laugh::laugh::laugh::laugh:
