    Default Pacers Digest Gathering Saturday, April 5

    The season seems to have gone by so fast, and we realized we had not scheduled the traditional in-season gathering. That has been corrected.

    Date: Saturday, April 5, 2014
    Time: 5:30 PM - when everyone gets tired
    Place: BillS and LadyAT's home

    368 W Main St
    Danville IN 46122

    Quick reminders

    1. This is a casual get together for everyone that reads Pacers Digest. That means EVERYONE - new and old - and is hopefully an opportunity for some folks who have been fussing at one another online to get together face-to-face again and remember why we like each other.

    2. We chip in $10 to cover the cost of pizza, you can bring whatever you like to drink. There may be fattening baked goods available. You have been warned.

    3. Traditionally, the evening is set up as a structured discussion session, with a moderator who gives everyone present a chance to answer the same question. Occasionally we break down into informal talking as a break. We will set up a thread for people to post suggested questions.

    4) Arrive when you can, leave when you need to. You'll be worked into the rotation.

    5) We have a dog (who has gotten old and probably won't love Unclebuck as much as he used to) and two cats.


    PM me if you have questions. I'll post directions as we get closer to the date.

    I would love to come as well, but it will depend on if I have baseball or not.

    Is there any way that you could create a poll so that we could start to get a breakdown of who plans on coming?

    Doesn't look like we can add a poll after the fact.

    For those who might be concerned, we will be removing all sharp objects from the house before the gathering starts

    Might want to hide any ladders or anything that would give access to a high point for someone to jump off too....

    Will there be an ample supply of antidepressants on hand?

    Will there be prominently displayed mental health awareness posters with a directory for various suicide hotlines?

    Better yet, will you have a local suicide hotline on your speed dial just in case the discussion turns into an O'B flashback fest?

    For those who are coming, here are some directions. If you are using any sort of GPS, be aware that our address is on Main Street (US 36) but parking is behind the house, so review these directions anyway.

    Start time - 6 pm or whenever you can get here.
    End time - I have to help with volunteer day at church at 10 am Sunday
    Will have - soft drinks, ice
    Bring - adult beverages if desired, munchies to contribute
    Pizza will be ordered, $10 is usual contribution.

    Household has an elderly but friendly dog and two crazy cats.


    368 W. Main St.
    Danville IN 46122

    (317) 745-4293

    Directions:

    From Northwest: Take 65 South to Lebanon State Road 39 exit. Take SR 39 south about 20 miles. After entering Danville, 1 block before the stoplight at the junction with US 36 take a left on Clinton Street.

    Take a slight jog at Maple Street, then pass High Street and East Street. The next street is on the right only (Morgan Street).

    After passing Morgan Street pass two small houses on the right. You will then see a driveway on the right that leads past a yard to a parking lot behind a house. That would be our house, park in the lot.

    Bang on the back door by the deck.



    From West: Either come in on US 36 until you reach the junction with SR 39 North. Turn left and go one block, take a right on Clinton Street, then follow remaining directions for Northwest, above.

    OR

    come in on I70 to the exit for SR 39 North. Follow SR 39 to the junction with US 36 in Danville. Turn left on 36 and pass Kentucky Street, then follow the remaining directions for N/NE/E/SE/S, below.



    From South: Either get to Indianapolis and follow directions for N/NE/E/SE/S (below) or come north on SR 39 to the junction with US 36 in Danville. Turn left on 36 and pass Kentucky Street, then follow the remaining directions for N/NE/E/SE/S, below.




    From North-Northeast-East-Southeast-South: get to Indianapolis, then come around to the west side via 70 or 465. Take 465 to Rockville Road (US 36) (3 exits north of I70). Exit and turn west (away from Indianapolis, toward Danville/Avon).

    About 20 miles later you will reach the Danville town square (courthouse on left). After second light of square, pass Cross St (SR 39 South) and Kentucky street.

    Once you have passed Kentucky street, look for highway marker sign for US 36 and SR 39 on right. The house behind it is ours (currently in stages of becoming not pink). Immediately past this on the right is a dual driveway. Pull into the first driveway and come all the way back to the parking lot behind the house.

    Bang on the back door by the deck
