We are contemplating getting a suite at the Western Metal Building as a group. We are trying to figure out how many people would be interested in going to a game in August. on a Saturday or Sunday.  If you would be interested please send a message to the lodge at esc1687@gmail.com. If we could get enough people we might even be able to rent a bus to take us to the game from the lodge.

Let’s Go Padres!!
