USSM Pizza Feed Information
After a little bit of delay, we have the official details of the Second Annual U.S.S. Mariner Pizza Feed. Last year was a big success, and so we’re doing it again. I’m not sure there’s a better excuse to get out of Christmas shopping at the mall then “Sorry, I can’t today, I have to go hang out with a couple hundred Mariner fans for five hours”.
In anticipation of a much larger crowd than we had last year, we’re shifting venues in the hope of accommodating up to 200 people. If you want to bring your spouse to prove that you aren’t the only one who cares about on base percentage and the rule 5 draft, tremendous. Have some friends who think clubhouse chemistry is the ultimate factor in winning? Bring ’em along. Despite our sabermetric leanings, this isn’t baseball’s version of a Star Trek convention. It’s just normal folks with an abnormal love of baseball getting together in the dead of winter to talk about the boys of summer. What’s not to enjoy?
Anyways, that’s the sales pitch. Here’s the nitty gritty details that you need to know:
When?: December 18th from 12 pm to 5 pm.
Where?: Horace Mann Elementary School in Redmond.
Who?: Derek, Jason, Dave, you, and various special guests who you’ll enjoy meeting.
How much>?: $15 per person
Is there food?: Enough pizza, salad, and sides for lunch and a small dinner (New York Vinnie excluded)
Great! Now what? If you’re going to attend, you must do three things:
1. Email us with the name of each person you’re confirming attendance for.
2. You’ll receive an address in response to mail your check to. Payment in advance is required; your spot is not guaranteed until we receive your money.
3. Show up on the 18th.
We’ll work on getting a paypal account for those of you who absolutely abhor writing checks, but I’d prefer the paper trail of good old fashioned pen and paper.
If you have any general questions that may be of interest to everyone, put them in comments. Specific questions, send me an email. We’ll be announcing a few of the special guests as they confirm their attendance. Either way, it will be a great time, and you should come.
