@KGlilly im going to the Higashi Hanawa train station.  Its about almost an hours bike from where I live.  What time are you leaving?

I wonder if there is a bus that can just take us to the Stadium itself from Kofu?

There's a bus but i cannot search for it as i am out of the country and no japanese input . I think it is from kofu station.
Wade- if you want to borrow my car, you can.

The car is insured even if I am not even there. I paid a little bit extra for these kind of situations.
I'll send you a PM.

Hey everyone, I can take Fred's car and do a pickup at Kofu Station then drop people off later. If that's alright, do you want to meet at 4:00 at the station?

Alright, myself, Amanda and our ride Emily (who are the ones with the tickets), will still wait at the parking lot, we can push that meeting time to more like 4:15 or 4:30. However Emily is on her way back from Yokohama this morning and may get caught in obon traffic, so we might end up running a bit late. I'm not sure yet by how much, but I'll try and keep people posted here - not the best form of communication, I know, but none of us have cell phones yet.

Those that need rides from Kofu Station meet outside the south entrance at 4:00 and then we'll make our way to the stadium  :-)

Just got an update from Emily, traffic was a bit bad so she may not be getting back until 4, at which point she still needs to pick up Amanda and I and then get over to Kofu. So we may not be there until closer to 4:45. Sorry about all the confusion!

Joanna, Emily & I will meet the rest of you at the stadium parking lot corner. Though it looks like we're already going to be a bit late D:

Another update from Emily - I'm super sorry about this guys, the original plan was for her to come back saturday, but then things changed around. She's very very close, but stuck in traffic, so we're not sure how long its going to be. Once she gets in, it shouldn't be much more than a half hour to the stadium. Since I'm not sure what the entrances for the stadium are like, I'd still like to meet by the parking lot, unless all of you manage to find each other and someone with a smart phone can tell me what entrance you're standing by. If someone has a cell number and is comfortable posting it here, I can call that person for quicker updates once I know more.
