Tomorrow’s Polk County Meetup Update

In the case of a rain delay, the Lakeland Flying Tigers have offered to find us cover. (Where depends on how many come to the meetup. A suite can hold 25 or so, for example.)

If the Flying Tigers game is rained out tonight, there may be a double header tomorrow…which usually starts at 5.

If there are no games at all, and the ballpark is completely closed, look at, Facebook events, and on Twitter at @lakelandlocal, @chuckwelch, and @polknetizens for the fall back choice.

When you go to the park tomorrow, tell them you are getting the $3 Polk Netizens ticket.

The Polk County Netizens are at it again with a get together for fun, food, and conversation. Every six weeks they hold a mixer for those interested in all forms of new media. If you write a blog, publish a news site, tweet, journal, or send smoke signals you’re invited to join the Netizens at Joker Marchant for a special Lakeland Flying Tigers game.

The Flying Tigers have offered the group special $3 night of the game tickets — so don’t buy early. Ballpark food is available; so take the opportunity to ignore your diet. We’ll have time before the game starts to chat a bit, and seats together during the game. Bring your family to this event.

Date: Tuesday, May 19, 2009
Time: 6:30pm – 9:30pm
Location: Joker Marchant Stadium
