OK fellow FINFANS!!! The season is only 5 months away... Though it seems to be an eternity, it will be here before you know it! We need to start making plans for tailgates, games and gatherings around the US... I have been feeling out the members in the regular and VIP lounges... Many feel that weekly gatherings amongst members are a grand idea. I have received many PMs and e-mails indicating such...

The first thing that we have to do is identify the location of all of our members... We have 50 states and several countries with members. I would like to request that each and everyone that reads this poll to select a poll… This will afford us to develop regional planners and maximize the numbers for turn out... The earlier we can get this accomplished the better for ticket sales, seating, accommodations, ETC...

Now there is a limit to the number of lines for a poll. It has a limit of 15. So, I have made groupings based on the ball clubs in a particular region… Pick the club that is closest to you and reply with the state that you reside… I will keep track of this and publish the final findings so that at least you know where the fellow FINFANS are that are close to you and if you can’t attend a game, you can at least meet up and watch one together…

Once the schedule comes out, we can start the process of getting tickets and developing group rates for travel, accommodations, ETC...

For those of us that may find it hard to make a game within their area, we will be working on several things to help with financing your trip... Please don't abuse the generosity!!!

I have asked permission from of the "Powers that are" to host/develop raffles, donations, ETC. to support this effort... It hasn't been ironed out yet but I expect an answer soon...

If you are interested in attending a game in your area, PLEASE vote and say so! Without input, or the lack there of, this will not work!

I have already started doing research for the STEELERS game... I am developing package deals based on Camping, Hotel, Air Travel, Chartered Bus, Ticket prices, etc...

Once I get the OK from the FINHEAVEN staff, I plan on developing some raffles, white elephant sales, charity events, ETC. in order to grow a funding pool to get some of our brothers from Hawaii, Alaska, and the countries that have FINFANS, to 1 game! With all the members that we have, we can dig up spare change lying around and get a couple of tickets for 1 person and a spouse/friend to a game...

So LET'S GET STARTED!!! :bandwagon Be sure to pass along this info when you visit so that we get maixmum effect!!!:gossip:

Holy crap, I thought I was along in my love of K-State football and the Fins!

Anyway, I live in the Detroit area. For sure I'm going to the Turkey Day game and probably none of the others.

I was appointed to churches in Falcon Land, but now I'm about 80 miles north of Jacksonville. All we hear from there is Del Rio, Leftwich, and Jaguars - and it's not even the kind with four wheels and some real sex appeal. (Egad, did I say that?!?!?!?)

I have season tix, so we are at all of the games, but are you going to put out info on the other regions to all? We try to take a group on a road game road trip once a year if we can, and it would be great to hook up with other Fin Fans!

Let's wait til the schedule is out bubba... I am sure we can find you a closer game... And if not, we will make sure you get to at least 1 game this year!

THAT IS MY GOAL!!! To make sure that EVERY FINFAN gets to at least 1 game this year!!!:cooldude:

Jersey... but i think everyone should try to go to the first game of the year

I am going to try, I have been trying to round up as many of my friends/family that are Dolphin fans, and try to get some other color in that stadium other then Black and Gold...after all, it's being televised in color, and Black and gold just doesn't look good in color. :D

Well, we will hook you up with fellow FINFANS at the game... I am looking at getting tickets, a section if needed, so we can all rock the house together... With a whole section of FINFANS... We will be on the Boobtube!!!

We will also be tailgating as well... Keep in touch and keep an eye out for updates!!!:rolleyes2

Well let me know how many you can get... I can get a bus chartered from your area for less than it would cost for everyone to drive... We can put a half keg on it with munchies and make a REAL trip out of it!!!

Keep me informed!!!

I live in Virginia in a small town called Tazewell. I was going to try and go the the Steelers game this year but I think it will be really hard to get tickets at an affordable price since they are giving them their rings so if I can't go there then anything else it to far of a drive this year. I would love to go to a home game this year but that is about 930 miles away so I'd say that will have to wait.
