Reminder: Halos Heaven’s Big A Takeover is just around the corner

New, 33 comments

We’re about four weeks away from our sure-to-be-epic meetup, and there’s just a few tickets left!

In early June, Halos Heaven’s intentions of taking over the Big A on August 26th, 2017 were announced to the world by yours truly. People were understandably excited; it meant a day at the ballpark, surrounded by online-turned-real world friends, some good food, a few good brews and/or soda, and of course, some Halos baseball, live and in our faces from section F109.

After I first wrote about the meetup, I then began staring at my calendar a few dozen times per day, whenever I had a second or two to look at the date on my phone or the calendar app itself, or the one I have at my office. How excited and anxious was I? Well, let’s put it this way: It was June 7th when I originally published the announcement, and even though I’d be getting married a little over a month from that date (July 9th), my mind was 100% on the Big A Takeover event.

Every time I was looking at the calendar at home, my soon-to-be-wife would say “Thinking about wedding stuff?” and I’d usually reply with something like “Huh? Ohhhh...yeah. Yep, that’s what I’m doing!”, followed by a bit of nervous laughter or a quick comment that would surely change the subject.

Ok, ok...so maybe I’m exaggerating a little bit...or maybe I’m exaggerating A TON. I just thought it’d be funny, but I also just had a vision of Mrs. Mayhem reading this and not only finding it humorless, but she makes sure that I’ll be sleeping in the living room for a few weeks straight. But hey! I really am stoked beyond belief for our HH hang sesh, make no mistake!

For those that missed it first time around, or need another refresher of what’s going down, here you go:

The 2017 Halos Heaven Big A Takeover

On 8/26/2017, Vladimir Guerrero will be inducted into the Angels Hall of Fame in a pregame ceremony before the Angels take on the Houston Astros. Halos Heaven has a block of sweet tix in section F109. The plan is, of course, to meet up and enjoy not only a nice, Saturday night baseball game at Angels Stadium together, but to see our main man Vlady get honored.

First, though, we’re going to takeover Golden Road Brewery for some pre-game festivities and merry making. Then, we’ll go over to the Big A, get settled in and watch the proceedings and, hopefully, a Halos win over Houston.

Now, the first thing you’ll want to do is reserve your ticket to this shindig...at least if you want to sit with all the Halos Heaven crazies. To do that, you’re going to hit up HHmeetup2017@gmail.com . First come, first serve, but nobody get stingy. You can call dibs on a max of 4 tickets. We want the most Halos Heaven peeps as possible to have the opportunity to go, and the tickets are of limited supply, of course.

Once again, it’s on Saturday night, August 26th, 2017. Our tickets are in Section F109, and they’ll be $60 a piece, plus $1 shipping. You’ll contact Blast21Dave at HHmeetup2017@ gmail .com , give him your Halos Heaven screen name, and then let him know how many you’d like to reserve. He’ll take it from there.

We’ll be meeting up at Golden Road Brewery a couple hours before the 6:00 PM game time (the exact time we’ll convene at the pre-game spot will be sussed out when we’re closer to the event), and after that, it’s over to the stadium. Transportation, food and beverage, just like the probable run-ins we’ll have that night with local law enforcement, are everybody for themselves. But make no mistake; this is going to be epic.

Got that? August 26th is the date. We will be there to cheer for Vlady, and to just generally have a great time.

There are still about 10 tickets left, so get on that if you haven’t already. Seriously, I know there are 10 of you amazing community members reading this right now that do NOT have tickets, but were thinking about it when I talked about it in early June. Well, the tickets are still here! What are you waiting for?! I want to see YOU! Oh, and YOU, too!

All you gotta do is follow the instructions above...hit up Blast21Dave, and he’ll take it from there! If you have any questions about the meetup, or have any other comments, concerns, etc., then please feel free to hit me up. We’re about four weeks out from this shindig, so a good reminder was in order. Consider yourself reminded. See you there!
