Anybody know much yet? Nothing on the web site other than date and teams.
Not as of now, no. From what I could find, matchups for the 2022 tournament were announced in like late July or early August.
How about individual game tickets? On the Atlantis web site they have a link to “buy tickets”, but it took me to their hotels. Looks like a fun time.
Should we get the Maui gang back together?
Jim and I opened discussion about it yesterday. Atlantis may be more expensive than I can handle. You think there would be good verbo options?
Thinking hard about it. You don’t have to stay at Atlantis. Several places on island that are not way out of reach. Going to cost. I got both airline and hoel points that will cover those, so we can handle it.
We might could look at an ABB etc for 2-4 BR place where we could split cost. Different folks like different things, but an option.
Last year in Maui John stated that they would be putting out the travel packages in Feb/March, obviously that didn’t happen.
Doesn’t look promising, Fred. Here’s what ii found on Vrbo for the tournament dates.
Being Thanksgiving week, rooms will be at a premium … I’m looking at non-Atlantis options as well … family may come for part of the week.
Jeff, let’s me and you team up on a house rental!!
Lol. Don’t think I’m making that trip three weeks after I get back from Scotland, Fred. Sounds fun though.
Just got the email for the tournament, not sure about tickets for those staying elsewhere.
Our other couple backed out. Gonna have to give up our Airbnb and not go. And Swine didn’t want to stay with us.
I’ve been to basketball tournaments (including two Final Fours). I’ve been to tropical islands (including Hawaii, Tahiti, and a hotel across from Atlantis). I’ve been to Scotland (including Edinburgh and Loch Ness). I love basketball. And escapes to tropical islands are great. But I prefer Scotland. Seeing the castle in Edinburgh for the first time, lit up at night when I got off the train from London, was one of the most magnificent sights of my life. Not that the 3 point basket we hit against UNC to end the first half in the National Semis in Seattle or the topless beaches in the Bahamas and Tahiti were bad sights.
We’ve been blessed to travel a lot. But Scotland is (by far) our favorite destination. Our sister in law grew up in the Borders region and we took her home 11 years ago. She had not been home in 48 years. The family reunion was magnificent.
We are heading to London from Paris tomorrow on the Eurostar. Then by train to Edinburgh on June 1 where we will spend a week and a half with our kids and grands, mostly in Inverness.
We are in London this weekend having a great time. Amazing city. Going to Premiere League Game tomorrow
Who are you seeing, Jim?
Chelsey v New Castle. Won this trip from Barclays Credit Card. Been completely 1st class all the way. Had dinner last night with E Wright. Guess he was a big deal. Real nice fellow
