So now that the regular season is only about 10 days away from starting, we should probably begin our discussion of when to hold this year's Outing. Based on the successful nature of last year's Outing (dropping the softball game and meeting at McFadden's), I believe that will serve as the basis for this year's gathering.

After looking at the schedule, we are very short on options for when to hold the Outing, assuming we keep the criteria of a Saturday game at 7pm in place. Based on that, our two options (not counting the game against the Yankees) are:

Saturday, June 16th against the Reds

or

Saturday, August 11th against the Braves

or

Based on popular demand, the July 7th (Saturday) game against the Cubs at 4:10pm is being added to the consideration, and seems to be the new front runner

Personally, the game in August is not possible for me as of right now, but I also know that June is much earlier than we have held the Outing in past years. Any input from the group is more than welcome, including potential alterations to the status quo or any other recommendations that you have.

Here is my one radical proposal. Seeing as we do not need the whole day any longer if we fore-go softball, I think it is feasible to also consider July 7th vs. The Cubbies at 4:05pm. Figure those inclined can begin consuming at MsFaddens at the time the softball game would normally start, and still have 4 hours to indulge before first pitch. This also leaves the possibility open for some post-game debauchery.

Like Ry said, just spit ballin ideas.

I still have no idea what's going on....

June 16th or July 7th will work for me. I think July 7th may be preferable. We've never done the day game before.

But June 16th is not early. That's around when the first few outings were held.

July 7th should be more than fine for me, and a day game would be a nice change of pace.

Well based on the responses so far, I am thinking July 7th may be the way to go. Still want to hear from a few more of the regulars, but there seems to be a pretty good consensus going thus far.

THR outing day is like Christmas in the Summer. I'm down for any game but the August 11th game. This year is a loss right?

Yes.
2005 we beat K Rod and the Angels
2006 we lost to Kris Benson and the Orioles
2007 we beat the A's thanks to Loduca's roid rage
2008 we lost to the Cardnals in extra extra innings
2009 we beat
2010 we lost to the Phillies despite the beach balls.
2011 we beat

Somebody fill in the blanks. I blame Bruce "Just one more shot" Wayne for my memory lapses.

2009 we beat I don't remember, but Pagan hit a GW GS and Ollie started. THIS was the beach ball game. I was there for the beach balls, but not the Phillies.
2010 we lost to the Phillies
2011 we beat wasn't it the Braves and Michael Bourn?

I hope "Beach Ball Guy" makes a come back this year. Michael BOurne got his revenge with a huge game against the Mets yesterday in Grapefruit League action.

2009 we beat the Diamondbacks, and I won a free beer from Game Six's friend by correctly predicting that Ollie would give up a home run in the first 3 innings (it took 3 batters I believe)

2011 we beat the Braves, and I got about 10 people to help me tell Michael Bourn that the left fielder thought his mother was a terrible cook

The Diamondbacks? Are you sure? I don't remember that at all.

Yep, that was Angel Pagan's grand slam.

2010 I broke my thumb playing softball, but didn't get it checked out till after the Pines and after sitting through a 9-0 blowout to the Phillies ... who Ray hates.

So in response I told her that if a key opens lots of locks, then it's a master key. But if a lock is opened by lots of keys, then it's a crappy lock. That shut her up."
