Just trying to get a consensus of what everyone wants to do.

If you pick lunch, how about 11:00AM. If dinner, sometime around 4:00 - 5:00PM would probably be best.

I'm sure alot of us will be hanging out together at the auction at various times.

Those Americans - they eat early, go to bed early, and get up early too.  They work too hard. :wink:

I like the idea of meeting for dinner Friday night before the auction.  Four or five pm would be a good time to go.  Not sure what time the auction is supposed to start but if Indy is anything like Dallas, after 5 pm on Friday most of the decent restaurants are packed.

I'm pretty cool with just about anywhere but would definitely prefer a nice pub to a high priced steakhouse.

And for anyone that wants to just get together and hang out, Badmike and I will be in on Wednesday afternoon.  We'd be more than ecstatic to meet up with whoever wants to and head to The Ram or just hang out in the hotel bar or room and shoot the breeze.  I am sure we will post a phone number here when we get there.  :D

Do not try the Ram Wednesday..Privateer Press basically owns it then with all their employees, volunteers and fans and of course those normal Indy residents. Thursday onward is easy enough to go to the Ram and find a table with little wait.
