What is the price for the HOF dinner?
One hundred bucks to reserve a spot. It pays for a nice dinner and a couple of drinks. You will not regret it. We all have a great time. I promise to get drunk and make a fool out of myself, especially if SJD wins. I will definitely need serious fortification to handle that.

You can reserve a spot if you pay the 100 in advance with Steve. For certain at the table, Me, my roomie John Bosnak, Colonel Bille, and San Jose Dickhead. Artie and George Powelski are probables. The rest of the spots are open. Steve should know if those are 8 or 10 seaters. Last year we put chairs at the end of the table also.

The Ghost and his girl Riva usually help Steve out with the Dinner in different ways. So they dont sit in any special spot.

Freddy was right about the cost (and fun) of the dinner. I have just finished updating the Hall of Fame page here and added a link for the updated 2012 Hall of Fame dinner here:

http://www.onepocket.org/HOFbanquet.htm

You can use the link to make your reservation any time. I only accept reservations for the 'VIP' & 'Backer' access ahead of time. These are $100 and $200 respectively, but you get much preferred seating as well as two drink tickets (otherwise a cash bar), also you are helping to support the One Pocket Hall of Fame and helping cover the costs of bringing the many special guests who attend -- who are a big part of what makes the event so much fun. Thanks in advance for your support!

At the Derby, I do make any remaining general admission seats available. Those are on an 'as available' basis for $50 kind of like half-off theater tickets -- you still get into the dinner, but you do not sit near the front with the inductees. I do not take reservations for these either, just catch me at Derby City. You will have a blast wherever you sit!

Make sure there are seats reserved at that table for Mike James and John Henderson who are is running partners so he is not bored out his effin mind sitting with you guys. Dick will not need a seat though as he will probably be on his high end scooter with custom YJ cup holder. :lol

P.S. I will give odds that Dick will be riding a scooter around. If he ask you to find a horse for him to race at the Kentucky Derby, do not bet, his scooter is tricked out with NOS. :eek:

We had it set up with some different table sizes and some tables pushed together -- I would believe at least ten when they are a large round or a couple mediums pushed together like that.

I would like to participate but because I was away from the game for so long I don't feel qualified for a seat at the "Big Dogs' Table".

That's what they used to call it in Alabama. They made it with peaches. You are probably talking about 'shine.

I thought you were calling me SJDuck ?...Now I see you are refering to me as, "DickHead, or DickBrain, and other unkind names...Are you tryna start sumpin' agin ?..:rolleyes:..
If you don't want to endure a few hours of my 'Don Rickles act', I suggest you cease and desist..Are you forgetting what happened to Mr. Pincushion (or whatever his name is) Do you want to suffer the same fate ?.. :cool:

And don't forget, I will also need three additional seats for Jen, Eva and Scarlett, so don't go filling the table up with smelly old pool players. (and your $5 hookers)...:rolleyes:
And, if you insist on being rude, I shall invite ScrzBill to the table, so you and him can talk a little politics..:sorry

And don't forget...........
