    ANDREW!! Shoot me a text, I don't have your # Say, "My name is Andrew, and I'm a Red Wings fan"

    Amanda, JB, Harrison, Ben: I think we'd all like to leave Ben's earlier than 11:30. I don't know everyone's schedule perfectly, but I'd like to push for a 10:30 latest departure from Ben's. Unless there are particular hold-ups...

    Amanda says she should be ready to roll by 9:45 from Alexandria (dentist apt at 8am).

      FYI -- my bro may or may not be up for sharing a room with people he's never met (understandable), so either we share with the group's two rooms...or, we'll end up getting our own...again, FYI

    I'm researching and booking a room tonight. Anyone who wants in, let me know.

    I need to know what you guys want to do about hotel rooms.

      Ben's van can take the 6 of us if he can get it. Two rooms, 4 queen size beds, we'll figure it out

    • Amanda

      7 guys and myself... my mom would be so proud haha

      February 11, 2013

  • Amanda

    Okay so there will be 8 total (6 driving down together... 2 meeting us there.) I'm thinking that we can probably do 2 hotel rooms of 4 people each. What do you guys think?

    Was holding off on waitlisting until things got sorted. I am free, and have a new (used) car that can take a group.

      If you want to drive, we can cancel Ben driving (if you're cool with that Ben), and that allows two more to attend. My brother and Ben's brother are meeting up with us in Raleigh. Lynn (who was a part of this meetup), will be Amanda's "+1" cuz I had to put her somewhere. If we don't get any additional hits VERY SOON, we're ganna close this meetup out and purchase tickets (everyone's $$ is required ASAP) Ben can possibly get a van if we don't need two cars (if we don't get another 2)

      I don't see these messages during the day, fyi. My car comfortably fits 4, can do 5 with small people in the back (Camry).

    NOTE: Volunteer driver(s) won't pay gas, riders will split driving cost
    --Either the drivers pay upfront and get reimbrused (easiest--riders will give $$ up before everyone departs from each other at end of trip, or as each gas stop is made--drivers can top-off tank before trip begins and riders contribute to the top-off; top-off before end of trip is on driver)

    I think its easiest if the drivers pay up front and keep a running cost (it's only 300 miles or so, so maybe one tank each way) Once we arrive in Raleigh, the drivers give up there their gas costs and all the riders (5-6 riders?) split the cost of the two vehicle totals. The riders may even double-up on that cost to pay for the entire round-trip? Let me know what y'all think.

    I'll ask my bro if he wants to come. my car sucks but I could maybe fit 3... ask Chris, it's a real tight fit. I do like the drive though, I've done it dozens of times

    February 5, 2013

    • Chris

      If your brother says he's in +1 up and we'll close the meetup out and 7 and start a waiting list

      February 6, 2013

  • Chris

    According to Amanda, Lynn is in, so I'm ganna +1 mine

    February 6, 2013

  • Amanda

    I'm going to ride with whoever listens to the best music. :)

    February 5, 2013

  • Chris

    My brother is going to meet us in Raleigh (so I'll need an extra ticket)

    February 5, 2013

    • Amanda

      Okay... we'll have to take a head count this weekend and buy the tickets then.

      February 5, 2013

    • Chris

      Word.

      February 5, 2013

  • Amanda

    Lynn wants to go. Hopefully a few more people RSVP so we can have a second car.

    I can drive. I have a Hyundai Santa Fe, comfortably seats four. I pick the music.....

    1 · February 5, 2013

  • Amanda

    I'll text her and a few other people who's numbers I have. I'd say we leave this up until Sunday then close it. That way we can figure out car situations and money for tickets.

  • Chris

    Lynn also mentioned she was interested--but couldn't confirm, you may want to contact her (especially if we get a 2nd vehicle)

    February 5, 2013

  • Amanda
