pacehandThe Indiana Pacers will host a party at Conseco Fieldhouse on June 26, where fans can watch the 2008 NBA Draft and hear from Pacers executives about the team’s draft. This marks the first time since 1993 the Pacers have held a draft party. The event is another effort to win fans back after several years of declining attendance.

Doors will open for VIP guests at 6 p.m. and for the general public at 6:30 p.m. Admission is free. The Pacers have the No. 11 overall selection.

“This draft has a lot of talented players and this will be our first step this summer of adding a player that can help our team get back to the level we expect and our fans deserve,” said Larry Bird, Pacers president of basketball operations. “We want to invite all our fans to be here as we make our selection and start gearing up for the 2008-09 season.”

Throughout the evening, fans will hear analysis, insight, commentary and live interviews from Pacers officials.

Giveaways at the event will include: three Pacers VIP Experience packages that include four tickets and dinner in the Varsity Club presented by UPS to a future Pacers home game; 11 Pacers Mini Plans that include two tickets to 11 Pacers’ home games; and 11 jerseys of the Pacers’ first round draft selection.

Everyone in attendance will receive a Draft Guide that will include a breakdown of select players in the draft, including scouting comments, statistics and interviews with select players that worked out for the team prior to the draft.

Invited guests will enjoy a VIP area where they can interact with current and former Pacers players and Pacemates and participate in interactive games.

  1. I think the poster was being sarcastic and only posting or making fun of what is usually posted on here about anything being built in BR or d'town for that matter.

  2. Great news IRL fans: TURBO the IMS sanctioned movie about slugs running the Indy 500 has caught the Securities and Exchange Commission because Dreamworks had to take a $132MILLION write down...because the movie was such a flop. See, the Indy/IMS magic soiled another pair of drawers. Bwahahahahahaha! How's CARTOWN doing? HAHAHAHA...Indy is for losers.

  3. So disappointed in WIBC. This is the last straw to lose a good local morning program. I used to be able to rely on WIBC to give me good local information, news, weather and traffic on my 45 minute commute.Two incidents when I needed local, accurate information regarding severe weather were the first signs I could not now rely on WIBC. I work weekend 12 hour nights for a downtown hospital. This past winter when we had the worst snowfall in my 50 years of life, I came home on a Sunday morning, went to sleep (because I was to go back in Sunday night for another 12 hour shift), and woke up around 1 p.m. to a house with no electricity. I keep an old battery powered radio around and turned on WIBC to see what was going on with the winter storm and the roads and the power outage. Sigh. Only policital stuff. Not even a break in to update on the winter storm warning. The second weather incident occurred when I was driving home during a severe thunderstorm a few months ago. I had already gotten a call from my husband that a tornado warning was just southwest of where I had been. I turned to WIBC to find out what direction the storm was headed so I could figure out a route home, only to find Rush on the air, and again, no breaking away from this stupidity to give me information. Thank God for my phone, which gave me the warning that I was driving in an area where a tornado was seen. Thanks for nothing WIBC. Good luck to you, Steve! We need more of you and not the politics of hatred that WIBC wants to shove at us. Good thing I have Satellite radio.

  4. I read the retail roundup article and tried Burritos and Beers tonight. I'm glad I did, for the food was great. Fresh authentic Mexican food. Great seasoning on the carne asada. A must try!!! Thanks for sharing.

  5. John, unfortunately CTRWD wants to put the tank(s) right next to a nature preserve and at the southern entrance to Carmel off of Keystone. Not exactly the kind of message you want to send to residents and visitors (come see our tanks as you enter our city and we build stuff in nature preserves...
