Default It's a Bit Early But ....2019 Net54baseball Banquet at the National Convention

It's a bit early but ....there will be a 2019 Net54baseball Banquet at the National Convention. It is being held at the same place (not sure of the room yet) as in 2017, the Embassy Suites across the street from the Donald Stephens Convention Center in Rosemont. The banquet with open bar, soft drinks, water and horse duvers will be Friday night (8/2/19) from 630pm until around 11pm-12am again...maybe later depending on how much I drink . There will probably be at least a few speakers again but that is undecided right now. It might be just me on stage doing the worm!! All members are invited and there will be an RSVP around 3-4 weeks beforehand. Thanks go to Heritage Auctions for stepping up and being the Platinum Sponsor again. It's appreciated. Spouses and kiddos are more than welcome. Hopefully a lot of members can make it by. It should be fun.

YAY! This type of event is why I prefer Chicago to Cleveland or A.C. We can all attend and walk (or stumble) back home.

Does the Embassy Suites connect via Skywalk to the Rosemont? I have a hazy memory of 1-2 hotels connecting that way.

A very nice gesture on Heritage’s part. Chris, Pete and the boys are the best.

No, I don't think it is physically connected (not positive) but is across the street from the convention.

I think it does connect the 2 hotels across the street from the convention--I use the skywalk when I stay at that hotel---and I always enjoy the net54 party--great pizza, snacks, etc and the booze---I always enjoy the speakers and getting to see other net54 members. Looking forward to it again.

Never too early to talk about the Net54 event. Missed not having in Cleveland this year and really looking forward to it in Chicago. Thanks Leon!

Pretty sure it does, but I think you need to access the skywalk from the parking garage.

Shows you what I know, not much. And as for the pizza, it soaks up alcohol well. And it will help because I am pretty sure I will vacillate between 1-2 Corona's at a time.
