I am trying to throw together a user meeting this summer so that DBSTalk members can finally meet each other face to face. I am trying to pull some strings at ESPN to allow a tour of their facilities sometime this Summer at ESPN's Headquarters in Bristol, Connecticut. I am hoping a tour would include of their still under construction new Digital Broadcast center (The construction is done now that are working on building the insides and studios) Usually ESPN does NOT allow tours, but I have made some initial contact and so far my communications have been promising. I would like to have this meeting sometime this summer, chances are this meeting would happen on a weekday (Monday or Friday) After our tour directly across the street from ESPN is America's Oldest Amusement Park Lake Compounce I was thinking after our tour to have an outing over at the Lake. (Lake Compounce has the US's #1 rated wooden Roller Coaster "The Boulderdash") depending on the number of people who would want to come we could get our own private pavilion, I would also have a few TV's setup demoing some of the new satellite equipment which is available or soon to be available for users to try out. My question to the membership is, I need a approximate head count of number of people who would come to Connecticut for the ESPN Tour and also who would be joining us at the amusement park after our tour. I would expect the tour of ESPN to be free, the cost to get into the amusement park would be determined by the number of folks who would want to join us there. There is plenty of lodging around ESPN, including a hotel next to ESPN. Please let know know if your INTERESTED. If you say you are interested you are not locked into anything, I am just looking for an approxamate head count so I can let ESPN and the Amusement park know. Any ideas you have would also be appreciated. Now please note while communication with ESPN has been good so far, there is no guarantee at this point they will give us a tour, this is one of the reasons they need an approximate head count. Thanks everyone!
