Great news on the Braves home game dates! Am hoping that the Falcons will play a home preseason game on Sunday. Planning to leave on Monday, but not sure when we will arrive. I'm SO looking forward to Atlanta in August.

Wishing & hoping & thinking & praying, planning & dreaming... and entering!

8/16/2012 is a THURSDAY, not a Wed. Sorry. Works out better if the 16th turns out to be a day game - usually starts at noon -If you get to town Wed. you will be able to go over to the stadium early Thurs morning to see batting practice before the game.

Thanks for the heads up! I'm sure sis and I will catch some Braves baseball (maybe even some batting practice) while we're in Atlanta.

Thanx for posting about these baseball games. Hoping the Dodger game on the 19th is a "nite" game.

I'm so excited to see that my Dodgers will be in town. Who knows maybe they'll be in the hotel or close by. LOL

I spent $1000 for New Hampshire from Wisc. Then I was lucky to have won it back on banquet night!

I imagine it would be around $1500 now at least. Save your pennies!

Registrations received prior to December 31st will be the discounted rate of $210 and you will be entered into the drawing for two free convention hotel nights!

http://www.atlantaga2012.com/Registration.html

You will still be able to register after December 31st, but the price will be $235.

Register early so you will save a little money to spend on your convention raffles and the chance to win the brand new car!!! http://www.atlantaga2012.com/Raffles.html

On the flip side, the last day to receive a full refund for those who, sadly, will not be able to join us in Atlanta is also December 31st. atlantaga2012@gmail.com
