Title: Bay Meadows gathering?
Post by: Barnes on April 22, 2007, 08:27:19 PM
I was there today, and I thought that maybe I should plan a gathering there.
Here are pics I took months ago:

But I'll need some suggestions. Like having it someday after Fanime. I'll need to look up the racing seasons though. And what kind of room should I look into?
What do you think?

Aren't they closing Bay Meadows "soon"?  If so we should have at least one gathering there before it goes away. D:

They might close if they don't make 5-10 million dollars in estimated improvements but they have about 6 months so we should have time for a gathering before they close.

I read about a month or so ago that they are closing for sure since the can't afford the cost improvements and the aren't able to get any extensions or loans.  Can't remember the exact date but it will closed this Fall

I could come since it is close or stop by if I have to work that day, since Bay Meadows is right behind and across the tracks from where I work.

Bay meadows only brings in about $700K in each year for the city and since they need millions in improvements I can see why no loan, but it would be nice to gather there so just tell me when and where and I'm there.

I've got a schedule, and apparently these sound like good dates to me:

-Aug. 25/26 (But I might be at EVO that weekend)
-Sept: Any weekend
Oct: Any weekend


Any suggestions? I'll take anything but the August one.
