I'm in a bit of a rush, but consider this the long overdue official announcement. While I'll direct you to Dave's post for the more detailed information, here's the short of it:
Who: us, others
What: us, others gathering together
When: June 14th (Saturday), 1-5pm (M's get started against Washington at 7:10)
Where: Seattle Central Library, big huge meeting room
Why: commiseration, self-loathing
How: gath·er /ˈgæðər/ Pronunciation Key - Show Spelled Pronunciation[gath-er] Pronunciation Key - Show IPA Pronunciation –verb (used with object)
to bring together into one group, collection, or place: to gather firewood; to gather the troops.
Cost is $20, but there'll be cool people there, like me, so you should consider your invitation an honor and a privilege. If you'd like to attend, send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org with the number of reservations in the subject line. Space is limited to 100, so be quick. To pay us.
Hope to see you there. It'll be a blast.
(Note: this is not an open thread. Any and all posts by Corco informing the community that he'll be out of town at the time will be deleted.)
(Also note: we'll talk about a potential softball game on the 15th in some other thread yet to come)
