Alright everyone, let's get this going! I know many of you have met each other outside of SS, and many of you want to, so that's the goal here. Tom Webster has been generous enough to help me facilitate the issuing of the tickets, and I've devised a way on which we can fairly partition them.

So, here's the plan. We have 16 tickets TW is able to provide and so it is up to us on deciding a date; the sooner we can decide, the easier this is for TW, so let's please get this thread rolling and be cooperative. The first part of this process is, obviously, choosing a date. Below is a link to the calendar

http://sabres.nhl.co...ub/calendar.htm

Priority is to have one where the most people can attend. If we get lucky enough where we get to that point, we can worry about which games we would prefer. Once we choose a date too, I can fill you on how we're going to select the tickets; both who gets to come if there are too many people and who gets first pick

We tried for the draft meetup, and not many could make it. Let's see if we can't get this going and really make this a cool event. The tickets are incredible, likely better than any you've had before. They are all very close to one another too.

I will try to do this, but I also will say that it would be easier to pick some random Thursday or Friday in November or something and have a happy hour.

I think a Saturday game would probably be the best choice, or a Sunday game

Beer is the superior drink, and it isn't whiskey because it's better than whiskey.

I'd really like to try to do this. I'll have to take a couple of vacation days as I always work when every other person on earth is off, and because First Niagara Center is 4 hours and 21 minutes from my house, but I'd definitely like to make it up there for a game with you guys.

You know what we should do?  Every week we should come back to this Applebees and sit at this table and have a family meal.  And order the same stuff.  And I would be delighted, TrueBlue, if you would accompany me to ballroom dancing on Tuesday nights.  It's a lot fun.  I think you'd have a good time.

Here's the thing with this thread, TW and I need definite answers. I understand many of us would like to come, but we need to know for sure by September or October at the latest. Maybe later depending on how difficult we make this for TW, and I'd rather not do that

I would like to attend, however considering the Sabres Loss Record when I am in attendance, it's probably not a good idea

It's also worth mentioning that we can try to get seats outside the block that TW can secure--people may end up a bit more isolated that way, but it'd work for all the before/after stuff well enough.

He's Flagg's date, and I hear Flagg will cut you if you touch his goods

You're in luck, cause odds are it won't be!
