A quick reminder that this weekend will feature the first of two special "Meet Preview" *live* webinars that will profile the Philadelphia metro area in preparation for Meet Weekend in August. These presentations will be hosted by yours truly and will feature contributions from folks across the AARoads Forum spectrum, many of whom will be in attendance for portions/all of the weekend itself.

This "Part 1" presentation will focus on Philadelphia County and the Pennsylvania suburbs and will be broadcast *live* on the 'roadwaywiz' YouTube channel on Saturday 5/21 at 6 PM ET. Whether you're a newcomer to Philly metro, or in need of a quick refresher course, we hope you can join us!

I might have to show up to this. Might. Usually I eat and run.

Greetings fellow roads scholars,

As we're now inside two months to go before Meet Weekend, I would like to start to encourage folks to decide their attendance status for either day of the weekend more definitively - this will be very helpful to me as I keep in touch with the restaurant venues for each day. It will also help me approximate how many vehicles to expect on each day's tour. As we are going to be in an urban environment on all of Day 1 and most of Day 2, the parking situation at each stop has to especially be taken into account on my end. You can do all of this via the Facebook event pages; I recognize that some of you who read this may not have Facebook accounts, so you're free to use any other method if you fall in this category.

I've been very quiet lately regarding how the Phillies/Mets game after Day 1 is going to be handled tickets-wise, but that will not be the case much longer. I will have further information on what interested folks need to do for that in the coming days (after I return from an upcoming long weekend trip). (I do not want to give out instructions until I have everything game-related lined up beforehand.)

Finally, you may notice that the initial post at the top of the meet thread has been modified once again to reflect (what I believe will be) the final list of highlights and tour stops for both days. Meet iteniaries for both days will be written over the next 6 weeks and should be made available to everyone in early August.

As always, questions & comments are welcome in all locations where contact with me can be made. Enjoy your summer, folks!

And he won't be root, root, rooting for the home team. Although in fairness, neither will I, because I'm already a fan of their opponents for that game.

The bigger question for me is whether it is safe for me to even be there as a Braves fan.  I hear that the Phillies fans are crazy.

Jags fans are crazy like Phils fans are. Hint: Not when they suck.

You'll be fine.  The Eagles fans are quite a bit crazier.  Baseball is much more of a family event, so there really isn't any issues.  The few times an issue does crop up it's an isolated incident, much like one you'll see occur from time to time at any ballpark.

As we're now inside two months to go before Meet Weekend, I would like to start to encourage folks to decide their attendance status for either day of the weekend more definitively

I am officially declaring myself as out due to recent personal events and (as previously mentioned) the weekend falls on my wife and I's wedding anniversary.

I intend to wear Mets gear to the game with little fear of an altercation arising.

Some information for you folks regarding the Saturday evening ballgame:

New York Mets @ Philadelphia Phillies
First pitch: 7:15 PM ET, Citizens Bank Park

A few months ago, I bought a block of (20) tickets in Section 413 for our purposes. As of right now, I have 4 tickets available in this block for interested folks. There are lots of seats available elsewhere and all around the ballpark in case we need more, but I'd like to make sure this initial block sells out and that I have a good idea of how many more seats we need to secure come game time. Please make your voice heard (or drop me a line privately) if you'd like to be included in the attendance roster for the game. (We'll figure out the carpooling/transport aspect of this at a later date.)

I'd note that you're best off parking north of the city square and taking the subway in.
