For those new to the forum.............
For a few years now we have been gathering to meet the friends we have made here on the Pacers Digest. These usually take place in early July as well as a Saturday early in the season without a game. Due to the trade re-shaping our team it seems like a great idea to have another party, thanks Shade.
So, we meet again on Saturday, March 24th at 5:00 at the Castleton Pizza King
I have kind of set up a few "guidlines"
1. Everyone that reads the forum is invited & encouraged to attend. This includes everyone from the founder to those that have just found us. Even if you only come here to read & have yet to summit your very first post, you are welcome too.
2. Stay as long as you like. Although the party has a beginning and ending time you may drop in whenever you're able. Some come in late & some leave early, either way, we're glad you were able to attend. We always order a second helping of pizza so there will be food for those drifting in, mid-party.
3. Your part of the bill - $10 Currently we ask that those sharing in the food & drink chip in $10.00. Pizza King has other menu items that you may order but thats on you. The $10 should cover the pizza, soft drinks & a small tip for our waitress.
A little side note on this. The past couple parties we have had enough to cover the bill but the tip has been rather small. If this trend continues we "might" need to bump our contribution up a few bucks.
We usually wrap things up at Pizza King just after 9 & re-form the party at the Perkins on the corner of 82nd and Allisonville Road. That portion of the party can last until the wee hours of the morning.
Thats the basic story. We set around, eat pizza & talk about the Pacers. Kinda like what we do here but it does take on a whole different feel setting at a table with Hick, Shade, Uncle Buck, Kegboy, Peck & the rest of the regulars.
I'll keep track of those that have mentioned they might be attending. More for me then anyone, I'll need to warn our host how big a group we plan on having. It also gives you an idea who could be there.
If this is something you think you might like to do, just let us know & I'll add you to the list. Oh, one last thing..... the menu. We usually start out with a pizza with everthing, one meat lovers, & one with hamburger & pepperoni. The 2nd order is left up to those at the party. So, if you don't eat meat or wish to have a cheese only pizza, we can do that.
Thanks, see ya there.
