Blogging Get-Together Planning Update 

Last week I suggested that D-Backs bloggers and readers get together at a D-Backs game here in the last two months of the season. I wanted to bump this back to the top here and summarize the comments:
1) Good idea
2) When?

Thanks for #1, as for #2, here are the issues:
a) Weekend vs. weekday
b) Which series / when (August vs. September)
c) Particularly bad days

As for me, I have a vague preference for weekdays, but I know Jim prefers weekends and has ruled out Tuesdays and Wednesdays.

I'm assuming that this week is out, which leaves (taking out Tuesdays and Wednesdays and two days --Sept. 10th and 27th -- that are definitely out for me)...

Pittsburgh: (Mon., Aug. 16)
Cincinnati (Fri. - Sun., Aug. 20-22, 22nd @ 1:35)
Dodgers (Thu., Sept. 2)
Giants (Sat. - Sun., Sept. 11-12, 12th @ 1:35)
Colorado (Mon., Sept. 13, Thu., Sept. 16th @ 1:35)
San Diego (Fri. - Sun., Oct. 1 - 3, 3rd @ 1:35)

I guess that of all those games, my first choice is the Dodgers game and the last choice is the San Diego series (I could be busy that weekend).

Looks like any of those should be fine this end. If you're doing the organizing, you deserve some fringe benefits, such as picking the game, so unless anyone else can't make it, the LA one is fine by me.

But It's a DRY Heat...
