Yes, I think lots of MTFers are going.

I am going. I've been going since the first year the Tennis Garden opened.

Well hopefully they come out of hiding and post here.

Awesome, I guess you really enjoy the atmosphere of the tennis garden. This will be my first visit, can't wait.

You're coming all the way to California? I might have to scrounge up some pennies and come out there just to say hello to you.

I'm closer to LA than to IW. If I can't make it out to the desert, perhaps we can do an MTF meet up day with the LA/So Cal people at Farmer's Market for lunch or something?

Farmer's market sounds good, anytime I'm not at the tennis garden. I'll be in LA from the Monday through to Friday, most likely.

It's about a two and half hour drive from LA to IW. If anybody wants a lift, I'll be happy to help.

I'll be going for most of the second week of the tournament. I had an absolute blast my first time at Indian Wells, and this will be my third year running. Make sure you take a sweater, a good seat cushion, and bottled water.

Really? I assumed it would be boiling out there. Thanks for the warning.

I'll definitely bring lots to drink.

If you're planning on being at the complex into the evening, then you'll definitely want a sweater. Last year I was watching the Nadal vs Nalbandian match in the stadium and it went until 1 or 2 a.m. and it gets cold in the desert as soon as the sun goes down. I suppose if you have tickets for the evening session as well as day, you can leave your stuff in the car, but then you'd have to trek out to the parking lots and back etc and that sucks (plus the sweater can double as a butt-cushion during the day). Of course, during the day you have to slather yourself with sunscreen.

Default Re: Anyone going?

I bought tickets in early September, so I am planning on going. If I had known my job situation was going to change and that my car engine would die on me a few weeks ago, I wouldn't have done it. However, I am hoping to have a good time and enjoy some sun and warmth during the day, far away from SNOW! There is still a possibility that if I can sell my tickets, I might not go, I need that money to pay for my new car and I am going to have to go part time at work and take classes in the fall. The money already spent/going to be spent could go to a better place. Stupid economy.

What hotel/motel are you staying at? If you don't have one yet, I'd suggest calling and getting a reservation asap.

There are a bunch of cheap motels off highway 10, and it's a straight shot south down Washintgon St off highway 10 to the tennis complex. I usually stay at the Motel 6 at Washington and Highway 10, then get up and hit the Starbucks on Washington on my way to the tournament in the morning.

If you're staying at a swanky hotel, they might have a shuttle. You can find a list here:
