Without Ela's (Laura's) permission, but with the hope and understanding that we want to get the word out, I'm pasting the info that Ela placed on the Saratoga Springs, NY show thread:
Saratoga Meet Up plans:
PRE-SHOW PICNIC at NOON in Saratoga Spa State Park-which is where SPAC is located. We will meet at either the Orenda picnic shelter, Hathorn, or Coesa shelter. I don't want to reserve one, since they cost between $150-$250. to reserve. Orenda is the closest to SPAC, Hathorn is just beyond that one, and Coesa is the next one after that down the park road from SPAC. Bring your own food/drink, or anything you want for a picnic.
If you'd like to order a sandwich, or box lunch for the picnic, the Putnam Market is in town not too far from the park. Here's a link to take a look:
AFTER THE SHOW: we thought we could meet up at The Irish Times for food/drinks and concert stories! It's open until 2am, so plenty of time for a meet up.
I can't wait to see some of you again, and meet some of you for the first time!
Laura ( Ela on the forum )
Pat Parker's Note:
This is an open invitation to anyone who will be attending the show in SPAC on Monday, June 27, 2011 (or anyone who happens to be walking through the park that day :-]).
Let's hope for nice weather and I already know we'll have lots of fun at the show.
If anyone wishes to give/get more up-to-date info, please feel free to send a PM to me and I'll give you my cell phone number.
Have a great weekend everyone!

Note: I think it's safe to say that if you're interested in meeting up, and want more detailed info, you can send a PM to Ela (Laura) also - meant to say that in my previous post. :-]

I will be staying at the Top Hill Motel -I check-in anytime between noon and 2 P.M. I have appropriate cell numbers, and will call before joining up - I believe my hotel is about 1 1/2 miles from the Spa Park. See you guys soon!

Also - don't forget - if any extra relative or friend without a tix would like to join in - I still have that extra tix for sale - I'll make a great deal for a great seat!

I still have not purchased a ticket yet. Um, Private Message TYPG if you are still able to make an offer.
I will not bother to make any other arrangements, until we have made contact, concert-ing the ticket.

I won't see anyone before the show (I may even bump into you and not even know it, so mind your manners (includes me) as later we might meet).
Enjoy the show, the excitement scale now measures 100%!
For those who are going to the after hrs meet up - I will see you then.

TIME CHANGE-We are going to have the picnic at 2pm, due to a change with the sound check time. The sound check has been changed to 4pm, so our picnic can move a bit later, which might help a few others to make it in time for the picnic. See you there at 2pm! See you after the show at The Irish TImes!

Cool!!! Hi Joe D. - I just sent u a PM, but I know it's late! Fell asleep early last nite! LOL. Just out of curiosity, do they allow exits from Spa Park between 4 PM and the concert?
