USSM NC Event This Sunday

Dave · May 26, 2009 at 7:30 am · Filed Under Mariners 

A reminder to those of you in the southeast – our USSM get together in Durham is this Sunday afternoon at Champps Sports. We’ve reserved their private dining area to watch the M’s and Angels play – game starts at 3:35, but I’ll be there around 2:30, so feel free to come a bit early if you’d like.

Joining me in hosting the event will be former USSM author Jeff Shaw. I guarantee at least one Barbaro joke out of Shaw, and if things get bad, we’ll make him teach us how to build a solar powered home. Conor Glassey won’t be able to make it, unfortunately, as the jerks at Baseball America actually want him to work for his money, but we’ll do another one of these later in the summer that Conor can attend.

So, Sunday from ~2:30 to ~7:30, a bunch of east coast M’s fans getting together to watch the team struggle to score runs. There’s no cost for the event other than what you pay the folks at Champps for food and drink, although we will insist that you tip well. Put any questions in the comments.

    Almost worth moving to NC!

    I’ve been away too long. Hi folks! Looking forward to an afternoon of baseball, beers, bad jokes and more.

    [Oh, and Dave: my next project is a solar-powered laptop bag. Yahtzee.]

    Yeah, bummed I can’t make it, but I’ll be down in Florida watching a HS all-star tournament that is just loaded with prospects, so I can’t complain too much.

    As for the tipping, there will be an automatic 18% gratuity added to the bills, so that’s taken care of.

    Have fun, guys. I’m excited for the next one!

    Damn, I’ll be playing a softball tournament in Va Beach that day. Maybe you can do a Pulaski Mariners game later this summer?

    I hope you can make it look more stylish than this.
