It was a fun night, and one of the neatest comments came from Pat Connell who said that given the convivial nature of the group, last night would have even been a perfect night for a rain delay!
Here are some scenes of our night out, including the pre-game gathering at Dominic's.....
Okay, to those Pirate Chat members reading this, a few questions. Call it preliminary market research for Pirate Chat Night 2014.
- Do we want to do this again in 2014?
- Should we do this earlier in the season next year, say, prior to the All-Star Break, or should we stick to a mid to late August date?
- Would you prefer a week end game, or do we keep it on a week night, or does it not matter? Keep in mind that it is much more difficult to arrange to secure a block of group tickets for Friday and Saturday dates, and I suspect that it may be even more difficult to do so next season.
- If you were unable to attend this season for whatever reason, would you plan on attending such a group night event in 2014? (Understand that this is not a firm commitment. The ability to attend such a game on any given night is, of course, subject to any number of variables in our own personal schedules.)
We sold 21 tickets for this event last night. Wouldn't it be great to at least double that number for next season?
