    I take it from the slight difference in events that you and Tommy will not be at this game, correct?

    Tell you what. Since this is for charity, if we get at least 10 members bidding, I'll join you and also donate AND bring along something unique from milepoint. Deal?

    Coors Field is close to downtown, right, even a long walk from the Hyatt? So when will the game probably finish and how long would it take to get from the game to the airport on Sunday afternoon?

    Ugh, silly me for not realizing there were two days of baseball. I could have booked the evening flight home. Oh well. Maybe a last-minute SDC on Sun can make things work out.

    Game should end around 4:10. To be safe, call it an hour to the airport.

    I was in the same boat. But it turned out that the price of my fare had decreased after I book it, so it cost next to nothing to change it.

    Please count me in. Bid $100.

    Hopefully there will be time to go back to the hotel to change before going to Dahl Golden Wings Gala Sunday night. And hopefully a few doing this so we can share rides to & from the gala.

    Does this mean ten members bidding or members bidding for ten spots? In other words, do the people requesting two seats count double toward the ten?

    Folks, as this is an all in event with drinks and food, I would appreciate it if everyone could accept a 50 dollar minimum

    Done, no problem. I was trying to bid low in case someone else really wanted to go and could stay for the entire game. I had naively expected a last-minute bidding frenzy.

    He he.. I know. On Sunday, most have left and I really don't want to hand the Dahls folks a 20 each person for 4 hours of drinking/ eating & fun.
