    Gen Con Welcome signs!!!

    WOO HOO!!!!! The GenCon welcome signs are up in Indy! These are the ones they put on the lightpost. I think that is interesting because it shows how much Indy likes GenCon over the Brickyard 400. Usually they put up the signs for the 400 then when that's over,GenCon. Not this year. It's like the 400 doesn't exist. The Ram hasn't decorated yet but we'll see in another week.

    Don't have the add image button with iPhone but just drove through downtown and took a pic: http://i1032.photobucket.com/albums/a405/Mossi1/163828f6.jpg Can a mod turn that into an image?

    It seems to be the same ones from last year based on the pictures I took last year.

    OMG streetsigns are up! I can't wait! (Although I still prefer the orange ones. They were so SPLASHY--and weren't there more of them?)

    Woot! 

    Looks like they took the lettering/font from the stupid "cycle balloon boy" ad a few years ago and added some vampires from photo stock.

    But hey, I'm just glad they have them.  In 2008 (I think) we arrived the week before GC and they didn't have anything up yet.  I don't think it saw a sign until ~Monday of the Con.

    Re: Gen Con Welcome signs!!!

     They have been weird with signs the past two years. The town segments itself into sections. The only place that has (and will likely only) displayed signs yet is the area around the convention center. I drive down Meridian every day to get to work, and the Indy 500 signs are still up. Usually they advertise the National Black Expo and then the Brickyard, and then the Moto GP. 2 years ago, GenCon had every sign in the city. I wonder if they have to pay for coverage?

And I will strike down upon thee with great vengeance and furious anger those who attempt to poison and destroy my brothers. And you will know my name is The Lord when I lay my vengeance upon you."

    Actually, I'm fairly certain they are the same banners as last year.

    Re: Gen Con Welcome signs!!!

    Okay they just started putting up the Gen Con banners this week and the Brickyard is this weekend? Is there any Brickyard Banners up too? I will have to take a look.

    Re: Gen Con Welcome signs!!!

     I haven't seen any Brickyard banners, but I wasn't really looking for them. The GenCon banners are only up on the stretch of Maryland in front of the CC and down a little ways.
