We tried tonight but discovered the office closed at 9. We were calling at 9:15 :(

I'm going to try tomorrow morning. We may not be as lucky since we enjoy sitting next to each other :D

I've got a question...... we've got a pretty decent sized group going, and one person is bringing an RV. I dont recall ever seeing any RV's in the regular lots, so I am assuming that RV's have to park in the RV lot. What is the closest general parking section to the RV's? We want to try to be close to them, but I don't know if it will even be possible??

As long as you don't park in the "upper" lot as soon as you turn in to the venue, you'll be somewhat within walking distance of where they park the buses/RVs.

For those of you not on Steel City buses, Star Lake announced they were opening lots at 3:00 tomorrow. Same announced time as last year. If I remember correctly, they started letting cars in around 2:30 last year.

It wasn't there in 09. But highlights of that and the Steelers Super Bowl win that year were shown on Jumbotrons during "Manana".

Also, I think Sundqvist has it today in Sweden(after Hagelin and Hornqvist in last week) with it being off to Russia next.
