Line for Pop Flies
The Padres FanFest is on Saturday 2/12. I won't be there, which is a shame because we were going to put on a blogging clinic in the handicapped stall of the Men's room. Maybe next year.
I think the plan is for Gaslamp Ballers to meet up at 3rd base at 11:30am. This isn't a mandatory event but some of you have expressed interest in having a common meeting spot and it worked well last time we did it.
Don't forget that Season Ticket Holders enter early at 9am with a voucher.
Here are some highlights from last year's FanFest to act as a fluffer to get you excited for next week:
I'll tell you my two favorite activities at Friar Fan Fest - Gaslamp Ball
Video of us catching pop flies in the outfield, tales of triumph.
NL Western Division Champs banner has a new owner? - Gaslamp Ball
Jon making an interesting purchase at the Padres Garage Sale
First Look at Padres Giveaways! Lunch box, Floppy hat and Eckstein Bobblehead - Gaslamp Ball
Sneak previews of giveaway items are reason enough to attend
Padres uniform vote ends in a tie between Brown 1978 and White 1984 - Gaslamp Ball
I really like the Padres Forums. Even if the topic isn't that interesting the psycho fans asking questions about why the Padres traded David Eckstein make up for it.

"I definitely recommend the tour if only to get the chance to spot some jocks."
Also the schedules for autographs, clinics, forums and activities were released today:
