This "in season" version will be ...........

[color=red][size=3]Saturday November 27th at 6PM

[color=blue][size=3]Castleton Pizza King

[color=black][size=2]For our newer members, this is a little history & some info on our forum parties.

A couple years back, I guess it's been 4 years now, I suggested we get together after the seaaon & talk Pacer basketball face to face. Kind of a meet & greet thing for all the people that had become friends here on the forum. I think we had 8 brave souls that first night.

Over the past couple years the party grew so popular that we added a second evening early in the season.

Last summer was our "break out" party. Didn't we have 23 people there?

An amazing group too.

We seem to have found our forum party headquarters at the Castleton Pizza King. There are a couple reasons why. First is the location. It's not far from 465 so it is fairly easy to get to. Next is the eatery itself. Not too loud, not too crowded & the pizza is pretty good too. Kids are welcome but the adults can have a brew is they wish.

There are a couple "guidelines" for the party.

1. Everyone is invited. Doesn't matter how much you contribute, if you read the forum you are invited.

2. There is no set quest list. I need to kindda keep track on how many people might be there simply to let the fine folks at the Pizza King know just how big a group we will have, that's all.

If you swore you would be there & can't make it, no problem.

If at the last minute you decide you are up for a pizza & a little hoops talk, we'll find room for you.

3. Stay as long as you like. If you can only stop in for a couple minutes, just to say hi ya, we'd be glad to meet you. If you want to show up late & leave early, that works too.

The party will start around 6 & end, well, who knows? Pizza King locks up at 10 but we have a habit of talking outside their doors until after midnight. I think it was 1 before we finally called it a night last time.

Looks like we will be moving the party to Hooters around 10 to 10:30. They close at 1 on Saturday so we will need to actually go home sometime that night, I guess..

What we have done in the past is put the pizza & sodas on one bill & everyone toss in about $10. That covers everything pretty well & leaves them a nice tip too.

The Castleton Pizza King is located in the middle of a parking lot. It shares the building with a liquor store but has a separate entrance.

The Pizza King is directly between the Burlington Coat Factory (to the north) & the Red Lobster (to the south). Hooters is just across the parking lot to the east.

Hope to see ya there.

This is the "Lookin' forward to it" group.

I'll be there.

What's the fallback plan for when Pizza King closes? Are we going to Hooters?

Hicks
10-07-2004, 08:58 PM
Hooters makes the most sense; since it's just across the parking lot.

Not the best weekend for me. A ton of family are in town and I am of course going to Pacer games Thursday (Thanksgiving night, family is already not too happy about that, and then Friday night also, and now another Pacers outing on Saturday night) That might be pushing it.

But I will do what I can to at least stop by.

ChicagoJ

"Looks like we might move the party to Hooters unless we have some underage guest, then it could switch to Perkins."

There is no age limit at Hooters, anybody can go.

Pig Nash

Yeah, it was funny. After a football game a whole group of us went to hooters. WE drove the waitresses crazy cuz we kept movin.

Jose Slaughter

Will I look like an idiot if I go because I don't know anyone?

That has been a common question for those considering attending their first party.

I could answer but since I'm the guy the started the whole thing so it might not mean as much.

I think the perfect poster to answer this would be Hicks. We tried to get him to a couple parties before he showed at the last one.

Hicks
10-12-2004, 10:10 PM
The last party was my first, and I can assure you you will do just fine with everyone. Most of us new people started out quiet, and as the evening went on I think we all got comfortable, and I and a few others got pretty talkative. It's really not as bad/scary/nerve-racking as it might sound. As soon as a good topic on the Pacers is being discussed, you can get locked into what's going on w/ it, and forget about being nervous or uncomfortable, because now you're there to talk Pacers, and that's something we can all do.

db530
10-12-2004, 11:33 PM
Well, I'll probably go then

Hicks

Anyway, I'll be in Massachusetts for Thanksgicing, so I'm out. :cry: What are the odds of putting something else together in late December when I'll be back in Indy for a week or so (probably the 18th - 26th)?

I will be there and with the 'one goal' yard signs. The price for the signs will be between $0-$20 depending on the respect I have received from particular individuals.

I intent to go to the games on the 26th & the 27th and remember vaguely we had a good source for late tickets with great seats on this board :D pls contact me :)

Well their first album actually was very good, after that they are no longer worthy of listening,

You MR, are a legend in your own right and if it wasn't for those legends et al i would not be there :)

I am really looking forward to meeting you :)

Speaking of which, I haven't seen Tim around in a while. I hope the sight of Al in a Hawks uniform didn't cause an embolism, or something. :o

Asked afterward if O'Neal's absence contributed to Charlotte's win, Knight bristled.

"What about Primoz? They didn't have Shaq, but we didn't have Primoz," he said.

I MAY be there. I'm flying in from NY that day and get in around 3.

But I have a 4-hr layover in Det (be quicker to rent a car and drive home). That's enough to wear anyone out.

So we're taking orders now? Sign me up for pepperoni pizza, or pepperoni&sausage if that'd be more popular with the masses.

Have fun though!! I'll try to make one of the next ones.
