    Hello all ...

    Sorry it's taken so long to send this out, but due to a variety of issues, we've been a bit delayed on the MLS Cup Planning.

    Anyway, here's the information for the MLS Cup Hotel that will be hosting the Summit. We were able to only save 30 rooms for now, but if we need more, we can try and get some.

    Four Points Sheraton Norwood
    1125 Boston-Providence Highway (Rt.1 South)
    Phone: 781-769-7900
    Fax: 781-551-3552
    3:00 check in/12:00 check out

    *Each room has queen beds (ask how many when you reserve)
    *$109 single/$119 double ($125/$135 regular rates)
    *Price includes a buffet breakfast
    *Must reserve by 9/21/02
    *Commuter rail is 3 min away, $6 round trip shuttle is available
    *It's only 20 minutes to Boston from the hotel.

    If you call to reserve, please ask for the Midnight Riders rate.

    We know people are a bit worried about the price of this hotel, but it's the best rate we could find at a hotel near the stadium/Boston and get a group rate. MLS Cup this year is the same weekend as the Head of the Charles Regatta, which annually brings in tens of thousands of visitors to Boston. So hotel rooms are at a premium.

    Considering that the Summit will be held at this hotel, this seemed the best hotel to offer the group rate at (and breakfast is included!). We are also exploring the idea of a bus/van to transport people back to the hotel once the Bash on Saturday night (which will be held in Boston) is over. Most likely, there will be a small charge to help us cover the cost of the van, but it will be better than a cab back to the hotel, or having to leave 2 hours early due to public transportation.

    If you have any issues, please email me at monty@themidnightriders.com.

    Thanx
    Monty

    Are you kidding Eggy? I didn't realize there was such a thing as available parking anywhere near Boston.

    Does your cousin just happen to be a horny, beer drinking, 6 year old who yells 'sucks!' after player introductions?

    Or is this a cousin that knows better?

    Very well done, swims; an excellent tie-in to that amazingly entertaining thread at TheCrew.com.

    BTW, Kryptonite, why the stiff comment? The guy's just passing along hotel info that people might find useful.

    3 stripe and i may reserve a room, when the crew doesn't make it we just cancel and get our refund, if they make it bunk with us and split the cost.

    At last!!!!

    Supporter's Summit info.

    I tell you, what an exciting time THAT baby is. Closest I ever came to feeling like I was at Origins or ComiCon or a StarTrek convention.

    Andy Meade pimping his rag outside while a bunch of really fat guys told Ivan Gazidis how he ought to run the league. I didn't notice him taking any notes, though.

    Absolutely surreal. But Lefty and I managed to steal a couple really nice signs from the MLS Press luncheon on our way out, so it was worth it.

    Comment of the day went to my old partner, who met us in the basement of Damon's on Saturday night. He and his paramour were there for about 20 minutes and then he turned to me and said -"Hey, I gotta shove off - I'm a little worried the geekiness might be contagious"
