    Default Dates for Pacers Digest Forum Party 16

    The Pacers didn't give us much to work with as far as dates are concerned. We try to schedule the party on a non-game date sometime prior to the end of the year holiday while also side stepping Thanksgiving.

    Here are our options.

    October 27th is the Saturday before the regular season opens.

    The next 3 Saturday's all have games scheduled.

    November 24th is Thanksgiving weekend, 13 games into the season. We could have it here but it would not be high on my list.

    The next two weekends are open.

    December 1st - 17 games in
    December 8th - 20 games in

    Having it before the season is underway would lead to us all talking about off topic things before the night is over. You don't want that to happen again, do you?

    I'd say either December date would be good since it gives us time to watch this new team.

    The later the better. Either of the December dates for sure. I won't be here for Thanksgiving weekend. And 10/27 is way way too early

    If I don't make one of the dates, I need someone to find me and beat me with the biggest stick they can find. I have intended on attending each of the last 5 forum parties and haven't made it because something always comes up.

    Ok so here's my "problem" :

    I am planning for "personal" reasons to go to Indy again this year but somehow "need" this to coincide with my birthday (preventing nasty parties at home) which mean I have to travel around the 22nd of November.
    I am sorta planning to arrive on the 17th, catch the game, see the Colts on the 18th and return (after the game) on the 25th.

    Of course I would more the appreciate to see all my friends again on a PD party, but I can understand it not being a "good" date for most.

    Appreciate some feedback though :P

    Off the top of my head I'd say Thanksgiving weekend won't work. Either December date is probably O.K.

    December 8th would be best for me of those dates listed, but the 15th would be even better. I'm usually busy Thanksgiving weekend, and my Finals are in early December, so the 1st is probably the worst possible date for me.

    I could do October 27th, but I agree that there won't be much to talk about since it will still be before the season.

    If I'm going to make my first forum party it would have to be December 15th as I have finals the week after the 8th and wouldn't be able to make it. I think last years party took place on the Saturday after I finished finals, but I was out of town. If we did it on the 15th I could make it.

    There's a game on 12-15 so I left it off the list.

    Maybe it's time to try having a forum party during a game...?

    After all, the game is only a couple of hours long, and we sometimes spend 10+ hours talking at these things. I think it may also encourage some n00bs to join in the fun.

    Maybe we could start the party earlier to boot? Not sure how much of a hassle that would be on your end, though.

    I officially second December 15th. I could make the 8th, but I'm pretty sure I have a Final on the 10th, so that makes it a little tough.

    Well didn't the last one start at like 3PM? Even if it's 4PM, that's 3 hours to chat before the game, and if it's over around 10:30-10:45, another 2+ hours to talk afterward. Who knows.

    We'd have to have it somewhere with a TV, though, which eliminates Donato's. Would have to be an away game, too.

    That is interesting. I generally do not like watching Pacers games with a group of people or really any people around - unless I'm attending the game. But I don't know it would be interesting to watch a game and comment on it during the game and after

    Pacers play at Miami - December 15th 7:30. We'd have to find a place where we could watch the game (most places will be showing anything but Pacers basketball. Some place that is quiet and we could really watch the game. Or depending on how many show up we could even go to someone house to watch the game.

    I don't know, this has possiblities.

    Edit: the more I think about this, the more I like it. And after the last last party I think we need to change things up a little. So I'm voting for the 15th

    There was a TV (small as it was).

    If you're serious about having the party the day of a game I suggest March 22.

    Don't you remember the TV in the upper corner left of the doors? It had CNN Headline news on the whole time or something. If they have FSNI we'd be set.

    I wonder if we can do better than that

    What about the new Pizza Hut just north of 116th St. and on Rangeline? I know its pretty far north, but they have lots of TVs and aren't usually too packed.
