Announcing The Next USSM Event
Update: And we’re sold out. I’m sorry to anyone who was not able to get tickets – we’ll look for a bigger venue for future events. Also, there are always people who buy tickets and can’t make it, so we’ll do a thread the week before the event to match up people who can’t go with those who want to.
We’ve done enough of these now where I think you guys have a pretty good idea of what they are. So, here are the details.
When: Saturday, January 9th, 1-5 pm
Where: Seattle Central Library, Microsoft Auditorium
What: Q&A with local bloggers and members of the Mariners front office.
How much: $10
We have 275 seats available in the auditorium, but I’m sure this is going to sell out, so you probably want to buy your tickets sooner than later. And, this time around, I’ve decided to make life easier on everyone and get out of the registration process, so I’m outsourcing the ticketing/payment to Brown Paper Tickets. You can purchase your tickets to the event from BPT, and they will mail you a ticket that gets you access to the Q&A.
This event was a smashing success last year, and I think this one will be even better. I’m flying out for it, for one, but more importantly, it’s on Jack Zduriencik’s calendar as well. We are not promising that any specific member of the front office will be there, as something could always come up that would require their attention, but we’re hopeful that Jack will be able to join his crew for the meeting. We’ll plan a 15 minute standing ovation into the schedule.
Logistical stuff: The library will provide a $5 parking rate for anyone who wants to park in their garage that day. Also, because the library will be open during the event, if you plan to arrive early, just enjoy the library itself and do not gather outside the auditorium waiting to get in – they don’t have room to accommodate a big line of people waiting for the doors to open.
Water will be provided, but no food. Eat before you come.
