Since it's at the Metrodome this year instead of the MOA, I'd like to go & bring the wife & continue the Vikingization process.

I know Nodak was asking who was going also.

Thanks Singer. I wasn't sure if it was a ppo party or the actual Vikings draft party.

Ever since the NFL changed the draft process to a weeklong affair, I've been getting screwed. I won't be able to watch the draft, much less make the draft party, as I work 2nd shift.

I really, REALLY hate the new draft schedule. I miss the all-day Saturday event we used to have. =/

Thinking about coming up. This whole Thursday night thing really messes things up for me though.

We should all see where is best to meet at the event. Not been to one at the Dome.

Thursdays suck for me, as I have my kids that night. Might think about bringing them up for that.

Haha, can't make it. I would have to bring my kids and that would be no good and no fun all at the same time!

Speaking of this... has anyone who registered for tickets gotten them yet? I hate how the ticket office waits until the last minute to send them out.

I think the deadline to apply for tickets is tomorrow so my guess would be they get sent out a few days before the draft. I agree though my ticket is being sent to New York then to me here (U of M) so I may not even get my ticket in time. I would have preferred just a simple print out ticket instead of hoping they decide to mail them early enough.

So has anyone decided on a meeting place? I have an exam tomorrow night so I'll be able to get there around 6:30.

We've had some signage in the past when it was at Winter Park. Not sure what the plan is for this year in the metrodome.

My recommendation - check PP.O before you come out. I am sure several of us (including me) will have a cell phone or tablet that we can use to update our location in the dome...

Anyone else have any thoughts?
