Today’s post isn’t much about the current state of the Royals, but rather an invitation and announcement about something were excited to try out. It’s the first live event featuring all three of of the writers here at Royals Authority. The date of the event is scheduled for March 22nd. The location is going to be at The Well, which is located at 7421 Broadway. It’s basically at 75th and Wornall in south Kansas City. We’ve secured the V.I.P. room which will give us some privacy from the rest of the goings on at the bar and our own dedicated televisions.
The Royals play an evening Spring Training game that night against the Angels which begins at 8:05 and we’re hoping it will be broadcast on Fox Sports Kansas City. They’ve always broadcast those games in the past, so I’m pretty sure that it will be on. If not, we’ll just listen to Denny and use our imaginations I guess. Update: I was informed that the Royals and Angels game will NOT be broadcast that night. Never fear, we still plan on having this event and getting together. We have some options we can explore in lieu of watching the game. We could listen on the radio or we could possibly put on a DVD of an old Royals game and enjoy that.
Prior to the game we’ll have a discussion amongst Craig, Clark, myself and possibly some guests which I’m going to try and record as a podcast. There is no cost to attend this event, but space is limited. If you want to go and are pretty certain that you can make it, send an email to me at brokenbatsingle at gmail dot com. I understand that sometimes plans change so if you do RSVP and then can’t make it let me know so I can get the spot to someone else.
We’re all excited to bring the Royals Authority community from the internet into the real world so we can get a chance to meet you all in person, talk baseball and hopefully watch the Royals. We’ve never done anything like this before, so I have no idea how fast the spots will go. We will probably get started sometime around 6:00 or 7:00, record the podcast and have our structured discussion then enjoy some baseball and beverages.
I’ll have more details as we get closer to the date, but I wanted to give you all a heads up and let you start planning and claiming your spots now. Clark is planning on making the trek all the way from Nebraska, so he’s going to be disappointed if it’s just the three of us and my mom. What, you think I’m leaving her basement and not bringing her along?
If you’d like to know more about The Well, you can follow them on Twitter, Facebook or go to their website. If you have any questions you can email me or just post them in the comments because it’s pretty likely that other people have the same questions as you do. I look forward to meeting you all.
