    Default 7th Semi-Annual Forum Party

    We have a date & location.

    November 27th

    Castleton Pizza King

    Two reasons for the early annoucement.

    1. It is two days after Thanksgiving.

    2. Able might be flying in from overseas & I wanted to make sure he has plenty of time to make arrangements.

    I'll start up my now famous list thread around the first of October.

    Well, if you want to make this the pre-signup thread, count me in for going.

    I should be "in". Count me at 99% certainty.
    Why do the things that we treasure most, slip away in time
    Till to the music we grow deaf, to God's beauty blind
    Why do the things that connect us slowly pull us apart?
    Till we fall away in our own darkness, a stranger to our own hearts
    And life itself, rushing over me
    Life itself, the wind in black elms,
    Life itself in your heart and in your eyes, I can't make it without you

    Are you sure about 99%? Traffic will probably be pretty bad on a holiday weekend......

    I thought we were gonna look at someplace that'd be open later. It might be awfully cold standing out in the parking lot.

    I no longer consider Castleton traffic to be "traffic". Don't make open up a can of Chicago-snob brand whup-@$$ on you.

    I think the Hooters across the parking lot is open late.

    Yeah, I think it'd be pretty easy to meet at the Pizza King like normal, then just hop over to Hooters after PK closes.

    I had thought we would be going to Perkins following our forced removal from the King. After all, Perkins is open 24 hours. You know we would sooner or later get the boot form Hooter too.

    Thanks obnoxiousmodesty, I can't wait to see that movie.

    Perkins works, too.

    Oh, I should be there. That Saturday night is our traditional "put up the Christmas tree night", but I might have to rearrange family tradition a bit this time around.

    OK some questions pertaining order of the day

    A. decent hotel in the neighbourhood?
    B. tickets: thinking "fun" tickets (decent view, noise etc pref close to some people from the forum) for Nov 25 and trying to get lower part (close to or courtside) against Bobcats, since I presume that will not be a sell out type of game
    Is my thiunking right, what kinda money am i looking at? and Ticketmaster has no tickets up that I can find, but I assume I can call the CFH for tickets as well? now for Nov 25th that is likely the best way, but for Bobcats? I believe we have some brokers on here that mightg be able to help me fullfill my wish? (and it would get me closer to players to get some autographs )

    looking forward to knowledge.

    And yes; I will be flying in Nov 25 (if time allows or otherwise 24) and fly out Nov 28.

    I am only flying in for the games and the party.

    So Long And Thanks For All The Fish.

    Legal is 21 here in Indy.

    Isn't there a couple hotels right at the Castleton exit?

    I don't stay at hotels so I couldn't tell ya a good one from a bad one.

    I think there is a Hampton Inn at the 82nd street exit. Castleton however is on the opposite site of the city from the airport.

    If you want to stay over by the airport you would have lots of options. Just about everyone is over there.

    I will be there - coming in from out of town - hope to meet some of the old timers from the STAR board (Peck, etc.). I may even bring the boy as he has been thoroughly brainwashed.

    Another thing I learned living in Indy able. DO NOT take a cab from the airport. They have what they call shared ride limo's that are much cheaper, and a nicer way to travel And I believe you could even book one from the hotel to conseco as well.

    If I still lived there I would come pick you up and volunteer to help you get arond that weekend. But unfortunately, I'm in North Carolina now

    I may be in town that weekend. If I am, I'll be happy to give you a ride to the game or such.

    I'll have to let you know as it gets closer. My wife is now thinking christmas instead of thanksgiving for our Indiana trip so it might take me off the party list
