RE: Coaches Caravan
Either I'm living under a rock or ODU isn't promoting these nearly as much as they used to. The only place I hear about them is from here on the boards

I got a letter in the mail, a single email about it and saw posts on Facebook. But yeah, in year's past, I think I got email blasted on this and couldn't forget when they were happening.

I went to the ODU Athletics web site to find it. Couldn't find it for the life of me, finally emailed someone and asked where the info was. Sure enough, it's on their site, but good luck finding it. I swear with the lack of info coming out, the less than impressive web site make over, dropping the ball on tours of the new facilities and literally hiding caravan info, it makes me almost wish for Debbie.
Big drop off in communication lately. Hope some one at ODU is paying attention.

I guess they found it too expensive to drive a few people up to the DC area anymore so I have just lost interest and given up. Will still see you guys at the games though...unless they decide to move athletics back down to the CAA. Then like Mr. Wonderful says, I'm out.

The last couple of times they did it up here it was a Nats park for afternoon games and the event was more laid back. I went to one of them and it was fun. Got to chat with Barefoot for a while as well as Scott and Nagy. There were no speeches or anything formal like the other ones. It wasn't very well attended. Maybe 20 people. Basically impossible for a lot of people to attend, even if you work or live in DC.

This kind of event is a tough beast to schedule in the DMV. You have it in DC and you exclude people from Tysons, Reston, Loudon Co. Mont Co. and other parts of MD. Vice versa if you want to have it in the burbs. I don't blame them for not wanting any part of that.

But we do get to send the curling team to El Paso, TX, Birminghame, AL, and Bowling Green, KY.

RE: Coaches Caravan
NYG, I agree that the turnouts were not great but at least it keeps the donors up here giving. I would think that most of us that continue to go have remain engaged enough to pay for these restaurants.

I thought both Nats events were experimental and sparse, but they could easily go back to the Arlington GC clubhouse for NoVA and/or back to the Lucky Strike beside the Phone Booth in DC.

Just hold one event in Clarendon or Rosslyn at one of hundreds of spots near metro and I would think most of us even on the Maryland side would try to make it. But anyways...not a big deal. I know those guys have other fish to fry.

Right after we hired JJ, they had one at Gordon Bierch in DC(which is like 3 blocks from me) and that was a decent turnout. I got to talk 1-on-1 with both Jones and WS for a while. The ODAF guy kept buying me beers. So I'm all in for them to do that again!
