The Society for Historians of American Foreign Relations
2008 Annual Meeting
SHAFR will be sponsoring a group trip to the ballpark on Saturday evening, June 28, to watch the Columbus Clippers (AAA affiliate of the Washington Nationals) play the Indianapolis Indians (AAA affiliate of the Pittsburgh Pirates).
Bus transportation will be provided from the Blackwell Inn to the stadium, and then returning after the game. Buses will begin running at 5:15, and will shuttle back and forth until 6:15.
Dinner will be served at a special picnic area behind the left field fence (see photo below), beginning at 5:30. The tentative menu will include the following: Italian sausage and peppers; baked chicken; macaroni and cheese, baked beans; fruit salad; cookies; and drinks. Vegetarian orders can be placed through the organizers by sending an e-mail request to: [email protected]
The cost for the entire event is $31.00 ($26 for graduate students), and includes transportation, dinner, and a game ticket. Tickets only, without dinner or transportation, can also be ordered through SHAFR for $9.00 each, by contacting the organizers at [email protected] with your request. More information about the game can be found at the Clippers web page linked here.
Please note that refunds will NOT be offered if the event is cancelled due to poor weather.
Don’t miss out on what is sure to be the single greatest sporting event in all of human history!
