    On June 23rd the Rockies play the Red Sox at Coors Field. If you have never been there it is one of the great places to watch baseball and to enjoy an evening. The area surrounding Coors Field "Lodo" was built to make people enjoy the whole experience. We lived in Denver when my children were small and used to take them there on a regular basis. It is really a family friendly place.

    As we all know, our appointees report the next morning. The Springs is not that far, and the game starts at 6:40 giving the kids plenty of time to rest before reporting.

    As of right now, there are tickets available, but, Red Sox fans seem to show up in droves all over the baseball world. I am planning on taking my son there that night. Most likely enjoy something to eat after the game and hopefully be back in the Springs by 11 o'clock or midninght.

    If anyone wants to join us they are more than welcome. PLease let me know and I will try to secure tickets close to each other, or hopefully together. I am going to call the Rockies today, May 6th to inquire about tickets and possibly group sales.

    Regards,
    Devil Dog

    I called the Rockies. They could do a group sales if people are interested. They could sit everyone together. I am taking 5 people, if we can get 20 more, it then bcomes a group.

    I have to talk to husband, but I think we might be interested because our Cadet's favorite team is Red Sox :rolleyes:. We would likely need 5 tickets as a friend from the Springs is also a fan. I'll check, but let us know if it looks possible.

    It definitely looks possible. With your 5 and my 5 we only need 15 to make a group. It would be a lot of fun.

    I think we would like to join in the fun! Sorry, but we are also Red Sox fans:rolleyes: There would be four of us, so that almost seals the deal.

    That makes it 9 confirmed, possibly 14. We can make the group as large as we want. It does not have to be just 25 people.

    I think this gets us to 14 or 18. I'll PM you. Once we get to 25 I'll buy them from the Rockies and you can pay me at Coors Field. Does everyone know how to use the PM function here?

    HI ,
    I am checking with my husband and son. We would be three people. When are you planning on buying? I want to make sure I have an answer before you buy a block.
    Thanks!

    Right now I have the following people as stating they want tickets:

    Jackson1989 4
    Dkavanay 4
    Tutmom 3
    Myself 5
    SMZ 7
    MN14 2
    Mauler 4

    Carteefarm, can you confirm if you want the tickets?

    I am going to call the Rockies after work today to buy a block. I may buy a few extra for people that may want to join later, but I would like as accurate a count as possible.

    Thank you Everyone.

    Devildog: Thanks for the legwork. I think we are in for 3; we are on eastern time zone and if your time frame allows I would like to confirm with appointee when he gets home from school. Will confirm before 4 eastern if that will work. Thanks again for the work.

    It works for me. The more the merrier and this way some of the kids can get to know each other before they begin what should be a difficult summer. I am hoping to get the Rockies to acknowledge the USAFA Class of 2014 in some way. It should be a fun night.
