I only realized last night that 2006 Nats are in St. Louis. I've always wanted to go and just never did the planning. So I went ahead and bought an all-event ticket last night, and booked a hotel.
If I understand things correctly, the Hyatt Union Station is the "official" hotel for the event. Can anyone confirm I've got that right? It's expensive, but this might just be a once in a life time experience, so I will be saving my $$ to do it right!!
Today on FSU someone posted that the secondary arena has been changed. The original one was also in the downtown STL area, but now it's changed to one in St. Charles which I guess is about 25 miles away. I guess they will be offering free bus passes, but lordy I hate to wait in line for buses!! I was debating whether to fly or drive from the Chicago area. It's normally about a 5 hour drive, but the downside is not ever knowing what the weather will do in January. But I'm definitely driving now.
I'm so excited, and hope to meet some of you in person a year from now!!
