Damn, I'll be cruising the pubs in Riga that weekend - hoping to run into Old Chelsea.

If you do, ask him about his secret mission to Kharkiv to research what must be done to restore their brewpubs.

He's probably manning an underground fermentation vat in Bakhmut but hopefully he'll be out on R&R by September

It'd be nice to see you. If folks are thinking about going, let the world know. :)

Hope to make it, but might be having a double-birthday party at my brother-in-law's house in Massachusetts. Timing depends on a special family friend who will be visiting the US.

IS the 9th a bad day? It kind of fit in our normal scheduling - after summer vacations, good weather day.  I'm not sure there's a good plan B in August.

great.  We don't have a count yet, but it'll firm up closer to the event.

It's about 4 weeks away, so post if you think you'll make it. Usually we meet up in the Loft. Folks grab space at the tables on the CF side, towards the outside (not the field side). If we are lucky, we smuggle in a banner and hang it, but the Nats aren't good with that. Our civil disobedience.

now that this is likely to be the day of Stras's retirement press conference, I'm assuming folks may try to pick up tickets. We will still plan on meeting at the CF Loft high top tables. I will try to bring a sign. If folks know they are going, post here.

Some year I'll make one of these again (I actually made it to 5 Nats games this year, been a while since I've been able to spend that much time in DC)

fantastic that you were able to get up here. I suppose the second best seat in the house now belongs to another season ticket holder. Did you sit out there or check out another vantage point?

I have a spare pair for 9/9 in section 113 (I think that's the section) and 1 extra in section 208. PM me if you are interested.

I'll be sorry to miss it...for those who can, this is a time to meet the real live people of WNFF. Unfortunately, my baseball buddy, daughter Rachel, will be "on duty" at the annual Labor Day March in NYC. (So many union members want to go away on actual Labor Day that they schedule the parade a week later).

Gonna bring the family again this year.  PM me or JC if you want contact details to meet up at the park.  And someone let me know when the loft portion of the evening is so we don't miss it again like last year :lol:

General idea is before game, loft, cf side, towards the back away from the field. I will try to bring the wnff sign, but security had us take it down last year

Yeah I think we were just running late (or "on time" for the game) last year.  This year I'll know better.

Just in case there's some rain, I'll figure out a plan B location with decent access to other beers. Maybe Plan B is the area next to Ben's on the LF line. There's a bar and bathrooms right there - 2 priorities. Any other spots feel free to suggest.

Turn out I'm guessing will be off with no Welches, Ali/ Frau, or Skippy, but it would still be nice to see folks.

Again, reminder - I've got a spare pair and a single available if folks want seats.
