Folks,

Creating this thread as a way to collaborate on plans for the 2017 A-10 tourney in Pittsburgh.

VCU's official hotel is the Omni, you can get special rates at this link:

https://www.omnihotels.com/hotels/pittsburgh-william-penn/meetings/vcu-alumni

Though, I'm not sure how special those rates are, as you can find a cheaper price on priceline.com

What we really need to do is find a nearby watering hole, and make it the VCU HQ, similar to KBH in Brooklyn.

Does anyone know the area well, and have any suggestions on the local Ram Nation HQ for drinking beers?

We can reach out and try to make arrangements!

Any idea how expensive these flights will be?
