    There will be stops along the way to discuss fabulously interesting DC Baseball history that occurred at those locations. One is obvious; the others, not so much.

    Your tickets are waiting for you. Section 305 (see the view)

    We have 16 seats together. Tickets will go to the first 15 who pay (I already took one). If we have more than that many interested, we'll figure something out. Guarantee your spot by buying early.

    Purchase your ticket for $25 on Paypal at steve /at/ offuttemail /dot/ youknowwhat
    or if you don't have a paypal account at paypal.me/steveoffutt

    Please use the Pay Friends or Family choice so I'm not charged a fee.

    Ticket includes:

    • Your seat with 15 of your biking buddies

    It won't let me just pay you. It wants me to log in. I don't have a PayPal account. What to do, what to do?

    Hey, I'm trying to plot out my weekend schedule (surprisingly jam-packed, but with mostly fun things). Is that a 10 roll-out from Shirlington? Or a 10am "arrive and drink coffee for a while?"

    Need to pick which church service I'm going to grace with my be-lycraed presence.

    If the Lord can suffer such smart-alecs as the Pharisees, I guess I can suffer you. >_>

    I suppose the more precise question is: there's no gathering time. What time window should I aim for?

    So, from what time may one gather to drink coffee, if departure is at 10 AM? Hillel said - from when it opens. Shammai said, one takes the time it takes to drink coffee, eat breakfast, wash up, and work backwards. For otherwise one would be idle. The sages follow the opinion of Hillel, except in winter, when would should not arrive before dawn, for the sake of pikuach nefesh (to save a life). Rabbi Gamaliel asked - but when is there a baseball game in winter? Rabbi Shimon said - I remember attending a baseball game in winter, but that was in Arizona.

    SHADE!!

    I have heard from some people (lookin' at you, scoot) that they are concerned about the hot sun at the game. Our seats are in the shade.
    So if that's what's been stopping you, you are stopped no more. Tickets are still available.
