You are hereby appointed the WNFF Meet and Greet Media Relations Coordinator.  If the Nationals tells me Johnny and Ray will meet with us, I'll ask you to be the point man.

I rode the elevator up with Johnny yesterday right about game time.  No chance to talk to him though, he had beautiful women all around him.   :shock:

Hate to criticize someone who is clearly doing the leg work when many are not, but you really sold us short asking for Ray and Johnny. How about Bryce and Tony? Or Max and Gio?...

Well good work anyway. I'll try to make it.

With The Chief's blessing, I sent this message to the Nationals media relations department just now.  I will update the thread with their response, if any...

The Washington Nationals (internet) Fan Forum (wnff.net) is conducting a member get-together at the Park on September 30th at 5:05 pm.
Members include local SPH, as well as folks from various US states and Canadian provinces.  We project several dozen in total attendance on this evening.
We plan to meet in the Bud Light Loft, and would like to temporarily place our WNFF 2'x4' vinyl banner in an area that would allow members to easily locate the rest of the group in the crowd.  There is a small seating area to the right of the bar as you look at the Loft from center field, and thought that an appropriate location.  We wonder if you can help with some specific suggestions?
If this is not the correct department, please pass this request along for further attention.
Also, we wondered if Johnny and Ray would be available to make a brief appearance / photo op with the members...either on their set or in the loft?
Thanks,
VaRK

At least he didn't ask for Bob and FP.

He's very personable and a real gentleman. I actually ran into him at a restaurant one time and he was as nice as can be. He's got that Midwestern thing going on.

And almost certainly he was looking up to the women. Dude is short.

Yep.  He was looking up to them.  Full bodied wenches they were, too.

I will...is there some coordination needed...glad to do it if so.

I love how this is all coming together...  ;)
It turns out that I will be at the game today with my friend. If you want to meet we can go see Johnny and ask him if he will attend.

This thing is rolling like a freight train...



If you think you may make it...post here with number of attendees.  This will help us understand how much of an area we need to try and carve out for the group. 

Remember - enter at the Center Field Gate as early as 5:05 PM and head for the Bud Light Loft straight ahead of you.  I will post pictures of the Loft tomorrow so that first time Nationals Park visitors can become aware of the surroundings.

There will be 4 of us in my party.

Running total is now 4...  :mg:

Hope to be there with the missus on 9/30 (2).

JH may not remember but tell him it's the same group that Debbi Taylor met with at one of the games at RFK.    He and Don Baylor talked to Debbi about it on air.

Just spent the last 15 minutes looking for my keys.

Turns out they were in the last place I had them.
