WOULD YOU HELP NEW MEMBERS FIND THEIR WAY TO THE GAME?

  • Man, Ive posted we should have a sticky like this every year for how many years.. haha.


    My brief suggestion for lay out:

    1) Suggestions on tickets (both buying and location.. point out the obvious, that there "isnt a bad seat in the house", but also say which areas are behind which benches, where the Hawks Nest is, etc)

    2) Suggestions on hotels from viewpoint of location and price.

    3) Game day routines and suggestions/reviews. Again, the obvious: Temple, but also the less obvious: parking, post game places to go or avoid

    4) While in town suggestions, divided into 2 sections -- Down Town Seattle (Pike Place Market, Waterfront, the aquarium, Westlake Center, Space Needle, Science Museum, Music museum that I forget the proper name of, Underground Tour, UW district and Husky game info, etc) and Day Trips (Northwest Trek -- underrated and under recommended in my opinion.., Ocean Shores, Snoqualmie Falls, etc etc)

    5) For the Kids.. if youre coming with kids it really changes the whole thing..

  • Fantastic idea that myself and 5 others will want to read about!

    We are watching the Leafs in VCR saturday Nov 2 and trekking down to watch the Nov. 3 hawks game.
    We booked the best western loyal inn (any good lol?). So aside from the regular outlets, what is the best way to get tickets?

    Also some ball guys in the group so like to hear what a tour of Safeco is like?

    Thx all...

  • Something else... At Carillon Point in Kirkland they have a couple Pirate Ships that sail on Lake Washington... Really a great adventure for anyone that is visiting Seattle... Sails from the Beach Cafe... Plus, of course there's plenty of Hotels on the Eastside of the Lake....I'm really an Eastside of the lake person so I promote the Eastside, because there's so much to see and do getting out of downtown Seattle...That's where a lot of beauty is in Western Washington.....

  • I think TEMPLE is the official meet up spot for .net fans in the seattle area on day of game. Maybe get them to ok it and make them the official .NET meet up zone? Possibly make a banner on the top of this place that says "Meet at temple billiards on Sundays your official .net party spot" :))

    Epic Seats is a little over priced but they have an office near the stadium to pick up your tickets. Or you could always get tickets from scalpers outside of the stadium. I usually go through Stubhub or Craigslist.

    Safeco Tour is pretty good. You get to go in the press box, visitor's clubhouse and dugout, and out on to the dirt by home plate. The tour guides are always pretty knowledgeable.

  • Thank you all for your words and information. I will take this down after today but keep all your comments.

    Many of you will be hearing from me in the future as we get this put together.

    Again, thank you.
