USSM/LL Announcement #2

Dave · June 2, 2008 at 11:51 am · Filed Under Mariners 

We still have a few spots open for the USSM/LL event on Saturday, June 14th. If you are on the fence about coming, sign up. We’ve got a great set of Q&A’s setup for you guys, and you’ll kick yourself if you decided not to go when you hear about it afterward. Details below:

When: Saturday, June 14th, 1 pm to 5 pm
Where: Seattle Central Library on 4th St downtown.
What It Is: Four hours of baseball talk with Jeff Sullivan, Derek Zumsteg, Matthew Carruth, myself, and really cool special guests. You’ll love them.
How Much: $20 per person, registration limited to 100 attendees, includes light food.

If you’ve ever been to one of these before, you’ll know they’re a blast. We’ve had a great time at all of the past events, and I expect that this one will be no different. The Library has a great meeting room setup with theatre seating and AV equipment perfect for a Q&A session with the people we’ve invited (past guests include Mariners GM Bill Bavasi, Mariners scouting director Bob Fontaine, Rangers manager of pro scouting Josh Boyd, ESPN writer Jim Caple, Rainiers Broadcaster Mike Curto, and Aquasox Broadcaster Pat Dillon – you’re going to get cool people at the event, trust us). We’ll just spend the afternoon talking baseball and having a good time, and since the Library is conveniently located not far from Safeco Field, it’s an easy jaunt over to the park after the event is over if you want to watch the team play.

Food will be provided, but I’d suggest that you eat lunch before coming, honestly. We’ll have snacks and non-alcoholic drinks available for people to munch on during the event, but don’t skip a few meals in expectation of devouring free food for hours.

To register for the event, send an email to with the number of people you’re reserving space for included in the subject line and their names included in the message of the email. Your reservation will not be confirmed until we’ve received your payment, which we will accept via paypal or by check. Detailed information on payment and where to meet will be sent to you after you sign up via email.

Seriously, it’s going to be a lot of fun, so come.

    Will Miguel Cairo be there?

    no, but try & keep Silva away from a free buffet.

    I used the old Amazon button– let me know if the money posts to y’all …

    We love you, msb, but for others – please don’t do that. It’s an accounting hassle to try to separate out donations to the site versus payment for this event.

  5. msb on June 2nd, 2008 12:54 pm

    sorry, I didn’t think.

    Let’s count that as a mental-health (i.e. mine) donation, and I’ll send the feed money the accepted way.

    Alas, it’s Father’s Day weekend and we’re doing our thing on Saturday. Enjoy, all.

    Just curious if my email went through. How long have most people been waiting to hear back about payment options?

  9. Dave on June 2nd, 2008 1:39 pm

    I generally send out the payment info at night before I head to bed so I’m not sending out repetitive emails to just a couple of people. If you sent in a registration note today, you’ll get a payment email tonight or early tomorrow.

    I haven’t sent out any confirmation emails yet, but if you’ve paid, you’re in. I’ll send that email out later this week.

    Thank you

    Will there be a recap posted for those of us that can’t make due to being in different cities/states/countries?

  12. sewerjew on June 2nd, 2008 4:44 pm

    *can’t make it*

  13. Dave on June 2nd, 2008 4:51 pm

    Yea, we’ll have some kind of recap up. But if Special Guest Guy says something off the record, we won’t be posting that. Part of the reason these guys keep coming back is that we don’t publish what they say at these things.

    I sent in a confirmation on the 29th, and another one yesterday, and haven’t seen a confirmation, even in spam. Is the reply coming from the same ussmarinerfeed@gmail address? Thanks,
