Update!

I bought tickets for my small group (me + gf, gf's friend, Painted Bandit, my sister and her bf). Old person side of the rink, about 2/3 of the way up, at the blueline of the end Tech shoots at twice.

Also, discussed the trip some with Brent and MNS yesterday. It sounds like there are 4 of us leaving on Thursday morning (me, brenthoven, MNS and State of Hockey), we will be bar-hopping the whole way there, and maybe shooting guns as well, just to get into the Yooper spirit. From what I hear, there are 2 groups going up Friday morning. My girfriend and her friend are leaving at about 9:00 from the U campus, and Shirtless Guy is going up at about the same time. I think DX is going up at the same too.I'm leaving Thursday after work...

I'm leaving Thursday after work...Ah, ok. I thought you were leaving Friday. Do we need to order wings for you right before the grill closes?

I'm heading up Friday morning so I only need to get one day off at work.

Any areas that people are getting seats? Looks like there's a wide variety available.

So, for the barhop, it looks like we only have 1 driver again. My former roommate won't be able to make it due to some family event going on that weekend. With that said, a group of 4 of us should be able to fit into PB's car, as I think he said he'd drive. And we'll have to recruit someone else too.

We're really going to be tight on time to do this in 5 hours, with the driving time in between. But I think we can do it. We just have drink fast, drive fast and take chances.

I might be interested in the barhop, depending on whether I take the motorcycle or drive the car for the trip. If I've got the car, I should be able to drive for this.

And, just picked up tix for the games. Really looking forward to the trip.

I may be bringing the wife and kid up for this. That is MEA weekend so we can take a leisurely drive up and maybe zip up to Madeline Island and/or stop at a buddy's lake home in Sconny. I guess I need to start looking for tix and hotel room, eh?

Plenty of good seats available for the games:

Not sure about the hotel rooms, though.

If I had a way to get in touch with him, that would be something I would probably think about.
