Re: who's going?
I'm leaving next Friday and will be there for the entire tournament. We didn't get our wonderful hotel from last year--waited too late (we could have stayed in it all but the last two nights, but I hate moving) and have to stay at another one . And once again, dial-up, but I'll be blogging as I have the last two years.
I'm extremely disappointed about Amelie, but still excited about the tournament.
A warning to anyone going who hasn't gone before: The weater is unpredictable. In 2005, there was a last-minute insane cold snap that had everyone freezing in the morning and at night. Last year, it didn't get that cold, but it was unseasonably burning hot. My heat allergy kicked in, it was so bad. So bring layers.
When I see some people walk into the stadium with these little bags, I can't believe it--unless they're just coming for one or two matches. I have to pack my camera, a jacket, a pullover, and sometimes a raincoat or little stadium blankets.
I'm hoping they move the BellSouth Zone back to where it used to be, but I'm not expecting it.
