I ordered tickets today and made reservations at the casino hotel. My credit card is still warm /ccboard/images/graemlins/tongue.gif

Unfortunately there are no VIP seats /ccboard/images/graemlins/tongue.gif

We will be there Friday thru Sunday.

Great, great, great!!!! I am so happy folks from here are going. /ccboard/images/graemlins/smile.gif Who wants to be responsable for posting the updates??? If computer access is a problem you can text message me and I will post them up....seriously. The WPBA brackets don't get update frequently enough for my taste.

I'll see you there.

Does anybody know anything about Michigan City IN? Things to do?

I know it's on the lake but it might be a tad cold for swimming in March /ccboard/images/graemlins/smile.gif

Thanks. I was aware of that. Gary's reputation is well known.

I'll try to not emulate Clark Griswold in "Vacation" taking the wrong exit ramp from the freeway /ccboard/images/graemlins/smile.gif

Sorry I got distracted...things to do. If you are a collage football fan the collage football hall of fame is one hour away, there is a designer outlet mall, and of coarse the casino itself. In summer the beach/lake , winery's, etc. kick in.

General admission is 10 or 12 bucks a session (2 sessions per day). Sunday's tv taping is about $25 for all 3 matches.

VIP seats are usually about twice that much but this event has no VIP seating for some reason.

Wally &lt;~~ wanted VIP seats /ccboard/images/graemlins/tongue.gif /ccboard/images/graemlins/mad.gif

Michigan City is 60 miles east of Chicago and 40 miles west of South Bend, on Lake Michigan.

Sounds like corn country Carol.

There's an ACS state tourney in South Bend this same weekend. There's a great steakhouse just over the line in New Buffalo, Michigan on Red Arrow Highway called Skip's Other Place. They have some of the best Prime Rib in the area. There's also a great Mexican place in Porter, Indiana on Route 20 named Leroy's. It's a small, biker-type bar, and the Mexican is the best in the area.

When I ordered tickets for the tourney yesterday, the 18th, Sunday's finals were already sold out. I was still able to order tickets for both sessions on Saturday.
