For our newer members of the forum, a couple times a year members of the forum gather to share their thoughts over pizza.
We have been doing this for longer than I can remember now. Once during the off season, usually early to mid July, following the draft & just after the free agent signing period starts. Then again a few weeks into the season, after the team has settled into their game a little.
EDIT: Date: 5:00 Saturday November 21st
Location: Ashton Brook Apartments Clubhouse
A couple of comments about the party.
These get togethers are open to everyone. Doesn't matter how much or how little you post. Even if you're an unregistered "lurker" you are very much invited.
We usually chip in for the eats. In the past the food of choice has been pizza. Some times we buy drinks for the group, some times you bring your own. Just depends on where we have the party. For the most part 10 bucks covers the food & tip.
Theres no guest list. I do like to keep track of those that have an interest in coming but thats just to let our host know how many people we could have. If you've been dying to come but something happens at the last minutes & you can't make it.... we're fine with that.
If you have plans to go to the opera or something & at the last minute those plans fall through.... you can drop by at the last moment.
Surprise guest are always the best kind!
This is not work, you don't need to be there at a certain time. We have a start time but if you want to show up a couple hours later.... no problem.
We stay out pretty late as well. If we run past your bed time or you have a long drive to get home.... not a problem there either.
Anyway, thats the basics. These gatherings are very casual & more fun than you would think.
If you have any questions please post them here or drop me a PM.
