Wet Dog Cheers on the Ray's

The Rays are in contention for the Pennant

so let's go Cheer them On!

 

 

Description: Get to know your fellow Wet Dog members while cheering on the Rays.

The Wet Dogs will cheer on the Tampa Bay Ray's as they forge on to the playoffs.  The plan is to do some tailgating before the game and get to know your fellow members, then bike to the Trop. Yeah you've seen them on some trips, but now mingle with them in a different setting while we cheer on our beloved Rays.

 

Bringing a BIKE, come with a SIDE DISH and let's go Bike to the GAME!

Tampa Bay Rays vs. Toronto Blue Jays Tropicana Field Tampa Bay Rays, St Petersburg, FL  Sat, Aug 17,[masked]:10 PM

Group Rate Ticket Prices: $15 (upper box)  (Min. of 20 people to receive the group rate) Note: We need your payment in by August 12th so we can get a good idea of how many are coming then we can get the tickets in our Mail to give to you.

Note: We'll charge everyone later for this event as well have three day deadline before the game to get in your payment.  For now just RSVP bring a friend if you like and put in what you are wanting to bring for the side dish at dinner.

 

Plans for Saturday's Event:

Start at Demens Landing Park (small island close to downtown St. Petersburg) for COOK-OUT.

Cookout starting at 4:00 pm (at the picnic tables close to bayside) and then finish at 6:00 pm and then ride over to the stadium on your bicycles.

 

Call the hotline number if lost at

[masked]

 

FOOD: bring a Side-Dish, we'll provide hamburgers & hot dogs, plates and utensil, with soft drinks

Requirements: every bike needs a front and rear light for the trip back to the park after the game.

Helmet must be worn and make sure you bring a chain and lock for your bicycle although I have large cable we could all use.

Special Option: if you're not interested in riding with the group a trolley shuttle can transport you back and forward to the stadium.

Directions: if you are on HWY 275 turn onto HWY 175 heading East then merged onto 1st Ave. South which goes into Demens Landing Park.

Parking: $4 parking all day at the soccer stadium, which is just south of Demen's landings Park's entrance (not on the island).  Parking is on 1st Ave. South which is between 1st Street South and Bay-shore Drive. It is not recommended to park on the island (Demen's Landing Park), which they write tickets after11 PM.

    Thanks for organizing the trip, Mike.

    Everything was great...

    Except the final score.

    Lots of fun, great to see the whole family, CM! Glad your shoulder's on the mend; take care! The brief storm was helpful in clearing a pavilion for us! Wonderful company, picnic, transportation, and, oh yeah, there was a game to watch too. Thanks, Jack, for teaching me some of the finer points of the game. Enjoyed the whole evening.

    Great to see those who came out. Got a little scare with the storm cell, but then things calmed down and we had a nice cookout. Brody loved the Rays game and his new cow bell.

    Had a nice time. Little rain before and rain after, but nice evening. Food was good even without the forks! Wish the Rays got more runs.

    I'm sorry for having to change so late but my back is acting up again and I'm afraid I won't be able to make it through the game. So sorry, hope everyone has a good time

    Ok, 5 members signed up for this event haven't yet paid on this site. We need for you to take care of this by Friday or tomorrow please so I know how many tickets to purchase.

    Is this Meetup still on? It seems we didn't hit the 20 people mark.

    August 13, 2013

    • Karen G

      Mike - do we pay at the window or thru Wet Dog site?

      August 13, 2013

    • Carolina M.

      Karen please pay through this site. It looks like if we don't get the 20 by Friday everyone will just owe 2 more dollars. I'll purchase either all the tickets through the Rays giving them each name. Then the members will pick them up at the Will Call Window.
