    Default Detroit area HQers, who wants to gather for a Tigers game?

    Per my note in the thread on Ron's article about online isolation and talking to people in person, I thought it would be fun to see if we could gather up some of the Detroit area HQers and put together an expedition to a Tiger game this Summer.

    Drop a note on this thread or PM me if you're interested. Once we know who'd be interested, we can figure out a date. And once we have a date, I'll get the tickets and make sure they're left at "will call" for everybody.

    So, let me know if you're interested and we'll get the ball rolling.

    Regal Beagles - 7-team AL keeper (I-96 League) on hold for 2020.

    PB: I know I don't usually look in this forum - did this time because saw your name - because I think of it only for league openings and I don't need one (especially in mid April).

    Is this the best place for this post?

    Yup, "Unclassified Ads" looks like the place to me. If it lingers unanswered, I may give it a bump or add another thread in the Clubhouse.

    Heck, you found it, didn't you?

    Trust me, the relatives aren't the only ones satisfied about that!

    Dang, the original was such a nice, well-intentioned post. Once again, all threads lead back to the Forum Masters trash-talking thread.

    Just giving this another bump. We've gathered up a few potential attendees already and I'll probably survey folks about a date in the next week or so.

    Hey, Patioboater, any progress at selecting a date? Make sure you include me when you survey folks regarding a possible date for a ballgame at Comerica Park.

    I don't mean to nag too much; mostly just bumping the thread so that others contact you by private message or by posting here.

    Lagging a bit because I've been travelling, but I'll send along a first cut today or tomorrow to the folks who have PMed me, so that we can see if there's something that works for all of us. Then I'll put that date out there to see if anybody else wants to join in.

    I won't go to a game in Comerica Facility for reasons I won't bore you all with. But if there's a plan for a get-together before or after the game, count me in. Please keep me on the e-mail list.

    No plan yet, but we're going to aim at a 1 pm Sunday game. So, perhaps we can move the shindig over to the Elmwood Grill (or some other location) afterwards.

    And if it's really just Comerica per se that you object to, perhaps you could whip up an expedition to catch the Toledo Mudhens. I suspect that might draw a few Detroiters.

    Okay, I've picked a date: Sunday, July 8 v. Boston, 1 pm. We slid out of June, but there was a lot to recommend it: weekends were better for most folks, the weather should be good, and Boston should be a fun team to watch.

    Since the other HQ at the Ballpark threads are in the Clubhouse, I'm going to move the discussion there, for consistency's sake: Detroit HQ at the Ballpark date is set: Sunday, July 8 v. Boston, 1 pm.

    Last day to order up. It should be an excellent matchup and I guarantee* a fine, sunny afternoon!

    Detroit (28-17) - 1st place in the AL Central
