so in terms of the where's and when's, let's do the Loft area, towards the CF side, and try to get some of the couch / comfy chairs in case the Spanish Inquisition tries to take them. I think I'll try to be there as close to gates open and access is allowed.  I don't think I'll break out the Marchand t-shirt for this, but I'll post what I'm wearing.  Some pics of the folks who showed up last time are linked.

Edit - I am guessing the Spanish Inquisition already hasbeen to the Loft because there are no more comfy chairs. There are hi-tops in their place that we can occupy. Still between the loft bar and the barbecue stand

oh, if anyone is still interested in tickets, I can pick them up for you.  Just let me know. Plenty of unused bonuses that expire at the end of the year.

Burnt ends. They’re fusion food, a cross between brisket and candy

So . . . it looks like The Chief, Welch and daughter, JMW IV, VaRK, Ali & Frau, and Cal will be meeting and greeting, with PB69 being delayed an a likely miss.  No urgency to break from the Loft, I'd think. 

Last call if anyone needs tickets.  Feel free to show up in CF Loft area between Rocklands and the Loft bar if you are in the park.

We'll miss you too, Skippy. 

Gates open at about 2:30.  I'll make my way over to the Loft / Rocklands standup tables as close to 2:30 as I can.  I've broken out the white giveaway jersey with the stars and stripes curly W on the front, and will be wearing blue jeans and a red cotton :w: hat.

I'll be wearing my WNFF t-shirt (it's almost old enough to drive).  For those who don't know, it's a solid red crew neck with "I pledge to <picture of a baseball>..." and a list of Nats fan pledges on the back, "nationalsforum.net" underneath  Coming with family so I will do my best to swing by the loft as soon as I can.

The joys of bringing kids to the park - we didn't arrive until 2nd inning, by which time I found that everyone had already dispersed from the loft.  I did manage to get JCA to guide me around to see VaRK and his wife and brother(?), CALSGR8, and Welch.  Tried to find JMad in 309 but I think he must have already left by then (was late in the 6th or 7th).  Was likewise told that Frau and Ali were lurking around someplace, but couldn't find them.

Next time I'll leave the kids at home :mg:

We left during the 7th inning stretch.

JCA, thanks so much for the tickets!  I got there a little late, but it was GR8 to meet CalsGR8, JCA and Welch.  I really enjoyed talking about the Nats' future with JCA and Welch, and hearing about the old days of the Senators from Welch.  And the Nats won!  Hopefully I can meet some of the other WNFF legends next time.

VaRK and Mrs. VaRK forwarded me some pictures that I will post, but tbh I never learned how to post pictures. I guess I have to set up a host account and then a link?
