I, also am interested to hear if there was a gathering.
I am new to this site, and live in the Madison area.
I am interested in any upcoming gatherings or helping to organize one.
Maybe even a scenic cruise up to the Merrimac Ferry sometime. (If it's running!)
I have only gotten to see the Prius from afar and would love to swap hybrid stories.

Hi All:

___03/07 can be a bit dicey around here Ö How about a real get together of Hybrid enthusiasts up at Miller Park in Milwaukee? I was there to watch the Brewers and the Cubs late last year and not only was it not sold out; there was Mini-Cooper rally w/ maybe 100 Miniís from all over the Midwest there that day. There isnít a better ball park in all of the Midwest and probably in all of baseball for that matter Ö It makes for a hell of a great Hybrid enthusiast get together/meeting place.

___Good Luck

Wayne,
I like the idea of a Miller Park outing.
That may have a wider appeal and draw a larger hybrid audience.
Even though I live near Madison, I have not been to Miller Park yet.
It would be a good excuse to go.

I would be interested in organizing something if I had some help.

Maybe I'll move this to it's own thread so as not to clutter this one.

Thanks, Jason!

Well with the help of the Internet I found the site for group information.
Gee, looks like we could get a suite for "only" $3800.
What a deal!

Seriously though, it look like there's lots of options.

I have posted more info about the Sunday April 25th hybrid gathering at Miller Park in Milwaukee at this webpage:
April 25th Hybrid Gathering in Milwaukee webpage

Here are some highlights from that webpage.

Hybrid Car Enthusiasts Gathering at Miller Park in Milwaukee

Sunday April 25, 2004
Brewers vs. Cardinals
Game time 1:05

Join other hybrid car enthusiasts for a day of fun at the Midwest's premier ballpark!

Owners, prospective owners, or those interested in finding out more, are all invited.

Insight, Prius, & Honda Civic Hybrid owners are encouraged to bring your vehicles.

Hope to see you there!

If we purchase the tickets as a group of 25 or more we get
- Scoreboard recognition
- A block of seats together
- The $3 per ticket handling fee waived.

Since full payment is due to the stadium office 30 days prior to the game date, time is of the essence. (Payment will be due March 25: Less than two weeks away!)

Final head count will be done March 21st.
If we do not have 25 people, the $3 handling fee per ticket will apply!

Ticket Cost:
Currently, there is special pricing for the Terrace Reserved tickets.

Regularly these tickets are $12, but right now they are available for only $9, plus you get a free soda and hot dog.

To me, this seems to be the best value. I am taking feed back up through March 14 regarding other ticket options. Barring any changes, this will be the tickets the group purchases.

Check back here March 15th for confirmation.

There are other ticket options available (see webpage or earlier post)
Take a look and provide feedback, through March 14th.

Payment:
I will coordinate the group purchase of tickets.

All payments must be received by me via check no later than March 25, 2004

UPDATE:
The group has been decided to purchase Terrace Reserved tickets for the April 25 hybrid gathering at Miller Park in Milwaukee to see the Brewers.
Cost:
$12 ticket price
$3 handling fee

If 25 people or more attend, we can get
-a $3 discount on the tickets

So far we have 5 people attending and invite you to join us. To date, the Prius and HCH are not represented!

Currently we have 23 people coming to the event at Miller Park.
We actually have two extra tickets available that we would like to sell .
They are $9.78 apiece and that includes
- A Terrace Reserved seat guarnteed to be with the hybrid section
- A FREE hot dog
- A FREE soda
- Plus if we sell them both I'll rebate you 78 cents per ticket at the game.

As I mentioned earlier, we are still looking for 2004 Prius representation.

Even if you are only able to come to the tailgating portion, we'd love to have you!
