    Default Indiana Pacers Draft Party

    Anyone else get this invite to a Pacers draft party hosted at Conseco from 6 to 10 PM on the night of the draft? It looks pretty cool. I think I'm going. Anyone else?

    I guess this means they plan on drafting someone and not trading away the pick. Otherwise, why would they have a party?

    Yes.

    I'm not sure. I think they might be trying to rekindle the Reggie draft party magic.

    Yep, we got one of them.
    I think my mom and I are going unless something changes.
    It does sound pretty cool.

    Haven't got my invite yet, but my e-mail from my rep said be on the lookout for it.

    If there will be free food and what-not,, we're going. Not sure about it yet though.

    It sounds exciting. It'll definitely be more fun watching the draft there so I guess I'll be going.

    Yes, I received an invite. I presume it's been extended to all season tix holders. Haven't decided about attending, but it's a cool idea and I applaud the Pacers for holding the event.

    watch on the big screen.

    Didn't receive an invite, but I'll be there if it's open to the pub like some are wishing.

    It is odd how the NBA Draft is a one-night deal on a weeknight when the NFL spreads it out over the entire weekend.

    I got a invite, but unless the Pacers are willing to pay my airfare from DC to go to it I wont be making it.

    Looks really neat, though. And I really like the invitation they sent out.

    Lots more players to get through in the NFL draft.
    Welcome to Pacers Digest! New around here? Here are three tips for making the forum a great place to talk about Pacers basketball.

    • Log in. Even if you want to read instead of post, it's helpful because it lets you:
    • Change your signature options. You can hide all signatures by choosing "Settings" (top right) then "General Settings" (middle left) and unchecking the box "Show Signatures" (in the "Thread Display Options" area).
    • Create an ignore list. I know it may seem unneighborly. But you're here to talk about the Pacers, not argue with someone who's just looking for an argument. Most of the regular users on here make use (at least occasionally) of the "Ignore" feature. Just go to "Settings" -> "Edit Ignore List" and add the names.

    Enjoy your time at PD!

    I'm not, but I probably got one in the mail because of the whole retired Ball-Kid thing.

    I get the quantity issue -- I just don't get why the NBA Draft doesn't get more hype.

    NFL is much more popular, but the NBA Draft is a more enjoyable draft (quick, players are well-known).

    Oh well, our mail down here is kind of slow anyway. Not to mention it doesn't come until 3 in the afternoon anyway...

    Pacers opened this up to everyone with special perks for invited guests:

    Pacers to host NBA Draft Party

    Pacers News Release | Indianapolis, June 4, 2008
    --------------------------------------------------------------------------
    The Indiana Pacers will host a party at Conseco Fieldhouse on Thursday, June 26, 2008, where fans can watch the 2008 NBA Draft and hear from Pacers executives about the team’s draft. The party will be free and open to the public. Doors will open for invited guests at 6:00 p.m. and for the general public at 6:30 p.m.

    “This draft has a lot of talented players and this will be our first step this summer of adding a player that can help our team get back to the level we expect and our fans deserve,” said Larry Bird, President of Basketball Operations. “We want to invite all our fans to be here as we make our selection and start gearing up for the 2008-09 season.”

    Fans will enjoy coverage of the 2008 NBA Draft at Conseco Fieldhouse courtesy of ESPN, which begins at 7:00 p.m. with the first pick in the draft taking place at approximately 7:35 p.m. Throughout the evening, fans will receive analysis, insight, commentary and live interviews.

    Fans can register to win prizes throughout the evening. Prizes available include: three Pacers VIP Experience packages that include four tickets and dinner in the Varsity Club presented by UPS to a future Pacers home game; 11Pacers Mini Plans that include two tickets to 11 Pacers’ home games; and 11 jerseys of the Pacers’ first round draft selection.

    Everyone in attendance will receive a Pacers.com Draft Guide that will include a breakdown of select players in the draft, including scouting comments, statistics and interviews with select players that worked out for the team prior to the draft. The program will also include a draft chart allowing fans to write in each draft selection and information on the Pacers draft history.

    Invited guests will enjoy a VIP area where they can interact with current and former Pacers players and Pacemates and participate in interactive games. They will also enjoy appetizers and beverages, including product from Anheuser Busch/Bud Light, Maker’s Mark and Coors Brewing Company.

    Several interactive elements will be available throughout the evening, including an interactive draft board updated after each pick. There will also be an opportunity to tour Legends presented by Bright House Networks and the Varsity Club presented by UPS.

    Concession stands on the Main Concourse will be open for food and beverage purchases and the Virginia Avenue Garage on the east side of Conseco Fieldhouse will offer free parking for the draft party.
