We have LGWers visiting HQ the weekend of December 9th and then a few coming in for the New Years Eve and/or January 2nd game.
Everybody sound off - who's coming to town when? Which residents of HQ are available for GTGs either weekend, to either fit in a GTG between games or watch a game on TV? None of this is carved in stone except for those traveling, so chime in even if you're interested but not sure you're available.
Please also give suggestions for a location for our GTG. I'd like to get at least one in at The Penalty Box in Fenton if possible.
Can't wait to read the "Phoenix: I still think it's a hockey market" chapter of Gary Bettman's autobiography. I'm guessing it's going to be chapter 11.

A little birdie must've told you I was going to be in town! LOL

I'll be arriving either the 29th or the 30th of December and leaving the 3rd of January.

I have no idea yet where I'm staying and a lot of what I'm doing may be based on that.

My brother in law is coming with me as well (he's a great partyer). He's also got family in Michigan.

I'm attempting to get tickets to the New Years Eve game as well.

I also heard Tidysteve is going to be flying in for the 12/31 and 1/2 games as well.

Anyway, I'm really excited! smile.gif

Maybe Matt wants to host a New Years Eve party wink.gif

Mark your calendars it's invasion of the RGDT!!!

Edit: Also, if you are attending the January 2nd game maybe we can all meet up somewhere in Greektown prior to going over to the game and ceremony? Your Thoughts?

I'll probably be up either Fri 12/1 - Sun 12/3 or Thurs 12/7 - Sun 12/10 pending if I can get tickets to the Maple Leafs game on Sat 12/9.

I already got tickets for Sat 12/2 game against the Sharks but if I get Maple Leaf tickets, I'm going to sell or give away my tickets on the 12/2 game.

If I'm up that first weekend over the second though, an event will have to be tailored around watching college football somewhere on 12/2 as I think it's a big weekend of matchups and my school is on TV as well. laugh.gif

EDIT - Learned I am defiintley getting Maple Leaf tickets, so I will be up that 2nd weekend. wink.gif

Yes, I had one last year...it was supposed to be the "first annual" one but now that I'm going to be there..that has to be put on a years hiatus!

The Navy works holiday leave at Christmastime so that half the ship goes home for Christmas and the other half for New Year's. I don't know which I'm gonna pick yet, but if it's the New Years option, you can more than likely count me in for whatever goes on around then.

Very cool, gentlemen. Please let us know what your plans are while you're in town. What area are you staying in, what nights are you free, whether or not the police have your fingerprints on file, that kind of thing.

BRTD I hope you wind up with New Years Eve leave....It'd be cool to meet up in Michigan before the SoCal games on 1/6/07 and 1/07/07 smile.gif

so what does it really mean? I just saw Lang and figured "what other common phrase do we have on this site that uses the word Lang?"

actually I figure it's "long may your something something."

Will there or will there not be onion rings the size of my own head?

As long as the onion rings are consumed by others at the table, no probs. I'm real generous like that. I like to let everyone else have all the onion rings.
