All -

We are locking down the dates (no one noted a problem with these) - June 15/16/17, Fathers Day Weekend 2012 for the First Annual Pace Advantage Arlington Park Weekend Extravaganza!

Please use this thread ONLY for 'signing up' (the 'Comments/Ideas'thread is for, well, comments/ideas). Copy the bottom portion of this post and fill in the info if you plan to join us. This wil give us an idea of numbers which we need to have (especially for Saturday). Everyone is welcome; the only caveat is you bring a good attitude!

If you don't want to disclose your name, so be it...I plan to have name tags there that will be either pre-printed or, if I dont have your name, blank that you can fill in.

Some folks have suggested Maywood Park Friday night. An alternative is AP usually has a mid-afternoon first post on Fridays. Note that traffic from AP to Maywood on a Friday night can be slow.

Also, the Cubs play the Red Sox that weekend at Wrigley Field. We will not organize that per se but if folks want to do that, post here and you can get in touch with each other.

The plan is to have several boxes or a room on Saturday at AP (thanks to tbwinner!). For Friday and Sunday we will figure out where to hang out. May be other 'goodies' on Saturday, but we'll see.

Saturday night we will organize dinner (pay your own but we will get a reservation) - some have suggested downtown, others a place near AP due to traffic etc. Of course, we could have two groups depending on interest.

Finally, we could look into finding a group rate for a hotel if there is interest.

Thanks and looking forward to having a great time!!!
Jon

Despite asking last week and gtting no push back, now it sounds like some issues with this due to Fathers Day. So it MAY change - depends on responses. Please reply to this thread with your attendance.

I would consider attending, but not a chance on Father's Day. Somehow I missed this whole thing until my father mentioned it.
