    Default PD Forum Party XIII - TODAY at 5:00PM!!!

    Hi ya

    Great news!

    Its time once again to start talking about our next Pacers Digest Forum Party.

    For those that are new to the forum, let me give you a little background on what this is all about.

    Maybe 7 or 8 years ago when a lot of us were over at the Star board we started getting together to meet the friends that we've made here on line. At first it was just a small group meeting in the summer, 6, maybe 7 the first couple times.

    Over the years the size of our group as grown to as many as 28 but I think we usually average around 20, maybe a couple more. Not just the locals either. Able has been here from England and ABA Days from Iraq. Closer to home we've had posters from as far away as Alabama & California stop in.

    Once a year seemed like an awful long time between pizza parties so we added a date early in the season. We try to plan both the summer & in-season versoin on a Saturday, the one during the season, on a non-game day.

    Many of the long time posters on here have become regulars at our little gatherings. I'm sure once you see the list of posters that are interested in attending, you'll see what I mean.

    The basic deal is to just set around & talk Pacer basketball face to face, over a little pizza. We discuss the forum a little, as well as the NBA in general. The stories you may have heard about the length of some of these parties are all true. The Pizza King we go to is only open til around 9. We use to start the party around 6, hang out til closing, then stand in the parking lot for another 3 hours. Well, it got cold out there so we decided to re-group at a Perkins just down the road. Some of us have been there past 2 on more than one occassion.

    There are a couple "guidelines" we have.

    1. Everyone is invited. If you read the forum, you're invited. Doesn't matter if you post 20 times a day or come here simply to read whats going on.

    2. There's no schedule. We might start at 5 or 6 but if want to show up at 8, it works for us. We might leave Pizza King at 9 & head down to Perkins until 3, but if you want to call it a night earlier than that, so be it. At least you were able to attend.

    3. We chip in for the pizza. We usually ask that if you share in the pizza, you share in the bill. We get enough pizza & soft drinks for whoever is interested & then toss in about $10.00 per person to cover the grub & a little tip.

    Pizza King is a family restaurant with more than just pizza on the menu & adult beverages for us "older" posters. You're more than welcome to purchase anything you'd want but we ask that you handle that bill on your own.

    At Perkins its everyman (& woman) for himself (or herself).

    I posted a couple questions back in early August about the date & location of PDFP XIII.

    http://www.pacersdigest.com/forums/s...ad.php?t=23142

    Of the 46 votes cast, 23 voted to return to Briggbys Pizza King, in Castleton.

    http://www.pacersdigest.com/forums/s...ad.php?t=23076

    25 of 32 posters voiting selected December 16th as the best date for the party.

    So here it is .................

    Pacers Digest Forum Party XIII will be

    Saturday December 16
    Briggby's Pizza King in Castleton


    If you think we might like to attend, just please post your name in this thread.

    Thanks

    I'm only in town the following weekend, so I can't make it. Again. I haven't been to the last 3 or so, maybe I can get back there this summer at the right time.

    Geeze,

    I have not heard from you in so long that I thought senility had set in on you for sure.

    Yes, the avatar is correct. November 18, 2006 is the date. If you would have ever come down, I would have introduced you to her.

    I will not buy you a beer, I will buy you a case. That is not a promise, that is a threat.

    I already have my plane ticket and hotel reservation, so I will be attending this event for the first time.

    It is a ways off, but my only concern is going to be getting to the Pizza King (as some have told me I may not be able to find a Taxi from my hotel that would take me to the PK.) I will focus on this more and game times rolls around, however.

    I look forward to meeting all of you!

    Somebody will get you there - if you take a taxi that far you'll probably have to pay him for both ways.

    Finally! A date gets chosen where I'm not working so it looks like I'm planning on attending, at least the Pizza King part. See you there ladies and gents!

    Question: Do we get those paper sticker name tags that say Hello, my name is TRAVMIL on them?
