USSM/Lookout Landing Event Announcement #2

Dave · July 12, 2007 at 8:06 am · Filed Under Mariners 

Here’s announcement #2 about the USSM/LL trips to the park next month. We’ve still got some spots open, and we’re going to be locking in the ticket purchases soon, so if you’re interested in going, you should sign up now. Information below.

Interest level was high enough that we’re going to make this happen. Jeff Sullivan and I are both going to be flying into town and hosting a pair of trips to the ballpark at the beginning of August. We’ve been putting on USSM events for several years now, and without fail, people always suggest that we should do them more often, so this year, we’re doubling the fun, and throwing in some minor league action to boot. Here are the official details:

Where: Cheney Stadium, Tacoma
When: Thursday, August 2nd
How Much: $25 per person
Includes: Ticket to game in USSM/LL seating area, hot dog, chips, and soda


Where: Everett Memorial Stadium, Everett
When: Friday, August 3rd
How Much: $20 per person
Includes: Ticket to game in USSM/LL seating area, fun time to be had by all

If you’ve ever been to a USSM event before, you know that we generally try pretty hard to make sure you get your money’s worth, and I’d expect these two games to be no different. Seeing as how the games occur just a couple of days after the trade deadline, we’ll certainly have no shortage of interesting topics to discuss, as well as just enjoying some Rainiers/Aquasox baseball.

Due to the nature of buying tickets in advance, we’re asking people to pay when they register so that we can avoid taking a bath on last minute no-shows. So, if you want to reserve a spot to either (or both) games, you need to:

Send an email to
In the subject, put Everett or Tacoma, followed by the number of guests you’re registering – i.e. Everett, (2)
In the body of the email, give us the full names of the people you are registering for.

If you are registering for both games, please send two seperate emails – it will make it easier for me to keep the registration accurate if I can separate the emails by event.

After your registration has been received, I’ll send out a confirmation email letting you know how to send payment. You are not officially registered until your payment has been received, so please plan on having your payment sent out in a timely fashion. We’re going to cap the attendance of the events in order to make it a more enjoyable experience for everyone, so if you want to attend, I highly suggest getting on the list as soon as possible.

Questions about the events, feel free to use the comments below, and I’ll answer them as best as I can.

    I sent a pair of e-mails right when the first announcement was made but haven’t heard anything back…I’m wondering if I should send another, or if you haven’t sent out confirmation e-mails yet

    Confirmation emails have been sent out to everyone who registered before today. If you haven’t received a confirmation email, you should re-register.

    Strange question but where’s the USS Mariner section going to be at the Tacoma game? I went to a game at Cheney earlier this year and regretted sitting first base side: hot day, full sun.

    Are you going to be sending confirmation emails when you receive payments? Because I sent my payment in the mail the day after the first post and I was wondering if it got there yet.

    We won’t force you to get a sunburn, Ian.

    As for payment confirmation, just take a no-news-is-good-news approach for now. If you’ve registered and sent payment, assume you’re in unless you here otherwise.

    I submitted 2 payments, one for each event. I probably should have checked first, but is that the preferred way of doing it?

  7. Dave on July 12th, 2007 11:36 am

    Either way is fine.

    Are there going to be carpool arrangements set up, or are we responsible for finding our own way to the event?

    I’ve actually never been to a Rainiers or Aquasox game, but not having a car, I’m not sure about the logistics of getting to either place.

  9. Dave on July 12th, 2007 12:19 pm

    I’m setting up carpools for people who register.

    Dave, I sent a pair of e-mails again today and still haven’t heard anything…not sure if you sent out another round of confirmations or not, but I’d really like to go to both events so just let me know if you’re not getting my e-mails and I’ll send them from a secondary address
