  • Lessons Learned At The 2009 Bash

    1. Keep your eye on your drink in the bar. Use a lid or drink from a bottle.

    2. Tell the guy hustling on the street that you donate to that cause in your hometown.

    3. Wal-Mart along I-44 (Kirkwood) has some decent Rams merchandise for reasonable prices. Shirts, wash cloths, chairs, and all sorts or other items.

    4. Leave it to the Rams offices to screw up the Deacon Jones' number retirement by turning off the lights in the place where most of us could not see.

    5. The Rams need to play "Rock n Roll, Part II" by Gary Glitter after each touchdown scored like it used to be played during the GSOT days.

    6. Parking at the parking garage for the Arch costs only $10 if you have to drive a vehicle to the game.

    7. AvengerRam is very nice in person (not that I ever had difficulty with him on here like others may have).

    8. The Bash is not the same without BigRedMan, Dez and Moira.

    9. ramgram and company are good people (even her misguided Steeler fan son).

    10. Jake's Steaks has better toasted raviolis than Hennegan's.

    11. There are others things that I learned this weekend and I encourage others to reflect and see what they may learn, as well.

    12. Packer fans with their shirts on or off still smell like rotten cheese.

                  AHEM! There is an old truism I will misquote here... St. Loius is a beer drinkin' town with a (base) ball problem. There is a micro brewery for almost every 3 blocks in town!! ramgram

                          Just wanted to make sure that I didn't miss anything. Is it going to be voted on or is Dez just gonna check with the Rams on ticket availability?

                          Bash Questionnaire
                          by AlphaRam
                          I figured I would start a dialog about the Bash for next season (2011).

                          1. What prevented you from attending the Bash this year (if you didn't attend)?

                          2. What should be added to the Bash?

                          3. What should be subtracted from the Bash?

                          4. If you have attended more than one Bash, which Bash did you like the best? Please elaborate.

                          5. What other ideas do you have about the Bash?

                          Here are a collection of the bash pictures from me, Liz, and others that I have pulled off of facebook. There are a few pictures with the players in there. Enjoy.

                          The pictures seem to have loaded in reverse order. The end of the game and pictures of the players are first, followed by the bash, and then the friday activities. Sorry about that.

                          by AvengerRam_old
                          What is the Bash?

                          The Bash is ClanRam's annual event at which a group of us travel from the ends of the globe to St. Louis for a Saturday night dinner and a Rams home game. This year the Bash will be September 26 and 27 for the home opener against the Green Bay Packers.

                          Who is invited?

                          Everyone! There will be a thread providing information on how to RSVP. Dez will get a block of tickets for those who respond. We typically will ask for information on who will go to the dinner so we can make sure we have enough room for everyone.

                          Where is the dinner held?

                          Typically, we hold it at Jake's Steaks, located in Laclede's Landing near the EJD. We will likely have it there this year. Great steaks, toasted ravs and plenty of libations.

                          What happens at the dinner?

                          For those who have been to the Bash before, its a lot of reconnecting. For the new folks, I think you'll find its a welcoming atmosphere (unless you are wearing the opposing team's jersey). We also typically raffle off some Rams items to raise money for the site.

                          Do we all sit together at the game?

                          Yes. Nothing like having a bunch of your Clanmates to high five when the Rams make a play.

                          Any other events or gatherings during the weekend?

                          There are usually some informal gatherings as well. If you come in on Friday, typically there will be a group who will meet for dinner. Many will do shopping excursions on Saturday to buy lots of Blue & Gold items. For those who stay until Monday, there's usually an after-party, of sorts.

                          Where should I stay?

                          The Drury Inn is a good choice, as it is right accross the street from the EJD and reasonably priced. There's also a Hampton Inn a couple of blocks away that is nice. If you want something a bit more upscale, there is the new Lumiere Place Hotel & Casino (also within a couple of blocks of the stadium). I am looking into a possible room block there to get the price down.

                          Should I go?

                          Absolutely. You won't regret it.
