SF Meetup
 
The idea of a meetup has been proposed in the OT 10,000 thread, thought I'd post it here for more to see to try and attract more Bay Area HFers.

Being that February sucks for trying to catch the Sharks at home maybe we could get together and watch one of the away games and then head out to paint the town teal at a couple bars.

For starters we need to see who would be willing to offer up their living room and TV for this meeting. Otherwise we'd have to try to locate a sports bar willing to put the game on WITH the volume up so we can hear Randy and Drew go off on their tangents.

Next we need to figure out when everyone can meet, hence the poll. Pick the dates you are able to meet and we'll see which one(s) get(s) the most votes.

Here are the away games in February and March minus the Blues game (too soon) and the Red Wings game (9:30am start?!?):

DateTimeOpponent
2/134:30pmWashington Capitals
2/164:30pmTampa Bay Lightning
2/174:00pmCarolina Hurricanes
2/214:00pmColumbus Blue Jackets
2/234:00pmToronto Maple Leafs
2/255:00pmNashville Predators
2/263:00pmMinnesota Wild
3/85:30pmDallas Stars
3/105:00pmPhoenix Coyotes
3/126:30pm*Edmonton Oilers
3/136:30pm*Calgary Flames
3/207:30pm*LA Kings
3/287:00pm*Anaheim Sucks
3:297:00pm*Phoenix Coyotes

Man those games are hella early. On Feb 25th, I propose watching UFC 144 instead. It's gonna be EPIC.

Why road games only?

I figured some people (read: those not on a college-student-budget) might be going to the home games and wouldn't want to skip them to hang out with us. That, and polls only allow for 15 options.

We can always open it up for home games too....

Definitely would be easier and less sketchy to meet at a bar the first time. As for location, obviously people are going to want to meet somewhere closest to their place, so whoever organizes it gets that luxury.

Has to be a march weekend game for me, as I will be taking Amtrak and have to stay in the city over night.

If I go I'm coming from Sacto and might be bringing a friend, we can always carpool. But Amtrak works for sure.

I guess you guys don't party hard enough and stay at bars till 3:00?

Edit: Can I change my vote to the kpop one? That sounds good. :)

Oh sorry, you'd still have to find a place to stay down there. I just meant we could carpool down and then carpool back the next day. Basically, carpool down-->Sharks game-->drunken debauchery-->sleep it off-->wake up the next day with some artwork or artifact we stole from city hall-->carpool back home-->mail stolen items back to their rightful owners with no return address-->???-->profits...

Sounds good, where can I sign up for this? Are we listening to kpop all the way to and from San Francisco?

Before we decide what soundtrack we'll be listening to we need to make sure we're meeting so we need everyone to make some choices. It would appear that KM (the one who came up with the idea) hasn't even voted on what date(s) to meet up, aside from the UFC fight. Maybe if we were talking about Flyers games he would vote....:sarcasm:

Kitten Mittons 02-06-2012 01:06 PM

Most of those are really early; those that are at 7 are like 2 months from now. I would totally do Flyers game though.

I propose a UFC night at sharksohnoes house.

Tbh, I couldn't care less about UFC.

Mafoofoo 02-06-2012 01:15 PM

A early weekend game would be great. Game / Dinner / drunken debauchery.

If any of those dates above match up with your schedule make sure to choose them. Otherwise throw out some suggestions. I'm certainly not going to get butt-hurt if we meet up on a day that isn't listed above...

Mafoofoo 02-06-2012 01:38 PM

2/25 and anything after that so far looks to be good. I just have to check to make sure im not assigned to work on any sims

So I go to ONE UFC match and I'm the UFC guy now? :laugh: Deal, but you're paying for the PPV :sarcasm: And I do live in Pacifica.

I'm pretty much the same. I get off work kinda late. 2/25 would be doable.

bluefunnel 02-06-2012 02:40 PM

I might be able to catch this, even though I don't really drink. It would have to be a weekend game though.

SoupyFIN 02-06-2012 03:16 PM

If I happen to win a lottery in the next few weeks, I'll be there. 625 euros for the planetickets only, yikes. :laugh:

well it looks like it will be an easy commute for me:yo:

CrazedZooChimp 02-06-2012 04:30 PM

Hmm, I probably will be too lazy to meet at some weirdos house with a bunch of strangers, but I would join a bunch of Sharks fans at bars to watch games. I voted for a bunch in March, because unless we meet up in the Dogpatch, I won't be watching any of the early games. Stupid East Coast.

StreetSharks 02-06-2012 07:04 PM

I'm currently in Canada but moving to the bay area in march sometime, this interests me a bit since I'll pretty much have no friends when I move :laugh:

Arkansas Shark 02-06-2012 07:20 PM

Maybe we can choose a date when I'm back in Cali for spring break in early March?

Havlat comes back and we celebrate by making creepy anime of all the Sharks players in honor of that one person who got banned lol

Sharkway Drive 02-06-2012 11:10 PM

Sometime in March would probably be better. I'm pretty busy for the rest of February.

Mafoofoo 02-06-2012 11:42 PM

If this goes down I might have a few friends tag along (assuming of course it's bar hopping/sports bars and not someone's house).
