FKing Season Tickets, 2014 49

All,

The time has come to figure out whether there is enough interest to do the FKing season tickets again this year. The deal is 24 games for $2,185 (including all taxes/fees). That works out to $91 per game (up from $81 last year).

If we order by 12/18 (which they gave me more lead time on than I’m giving you, busy NM is busy) we get the $200 suite (which we need to reserve by April 30, 2014) and a free pair of Field Level tickets in April/May.

Who is in, and for how many?

Nevermoor: 6
Ed: 2 (paid)
Ed’s Friend 1: 3 (paid)
Ed’s Friend 2: 1 (paid)
5Aces: 2 (paid)
FSU: 4 (paid)
EM: 2 (paid)
Oblique: 2 (paid)
Vignette: 1 (paid)
Brian: 1 (UNPAID)

    I would like 2 again.

    I have $5. No I don\'t.

    I’ll go in for four games this time. The ability to combine them into larger groups at fewer games is a major win for me. Also, I’ll pre-emptively take myself out of consideration for the extra April/May freebies, since I got them both of the last two years.

    Where are these seats? I might be induced to come in for a game or two if the original members aren’t taking all of them.

    • nevermoor nevermoor Dec 12,2013 3:37 pm || Up

      They’re MVP Infield (so 111-ish and the corresponding third-base section). You can see the starting seats from last year here: http://freekraut.net/?p=11477

      If you switch to less desirable games, you can sometimes get FAR better seats, since they just pass out what inventory they have. Also, you can split tickets however you want, so buying “two games” just means the right to four seats spread whatever which way you want.

        I had really good seats mid week last week of the year.

        I have $5. No I don\'t.

        We had great seats for the final HOU game. In fact, due to the heatwave, they were almost too good and we had to FSD into the shade for a few innings.

    I’m in for 2.

    I’m out this year — it’s not in the budget if I’m also doing three front-row games. So EM can take the one or two that I would have taken if I’d been taking them…

    There's a wild thing in the woolshed and it's keeping me awake at night.
  7. nevermoor nevermoor Dec 16,2013 5:28 pm

    Just pinging this to see if others are interested. Right now we’re a bunch of games short.

    That said, I can probably talk them into giving the early-bird bonuses to us if we miss 12/18 by a little bit so it isn’t like the project is DOA.

    If we are close and I can have a little time I will go for a second game.

    I’m in for 1 again.

  10. nevermoor nevermoor Dec 29,2013 5:06 pm

    So far we are at a max of 13/24, which leaves too many for me to cover. Are others interested?

      Sorry, NM. I don’t think I can commit to it this season.

    • Future Ed Future Ed Dec 31,2013 6:33 pm || Up

      I could expand the circle? Would you like me to ask someone?

      I have $5. No I don\'t.
      • nevermoor nevermoor Dec 31,2013 9:36 pm || Up

        Sure

        • Future Ed Future Ed Jan 1,2014 9:19 am || Up

          I have at least one friend in for 3.

          Do I need more?

          I have $5. No I don\'t.
          • nevermoor nevermoor Jan 1,2014 10:53 am || Up

            Ideally I’m only buying 4 or 5 games this year since Anna’s not a prime game-attending age, so if you have another friend like that I think we are perfect

            • Future Ed Future Ed Jan 6,2014 12:21 pm || Up

              I got one more commitment to one game

              I have $5. No I don\'t.
  11. brian.only Dec 31,2013 6:28 pm

    If we get closer for you NM, I’m good for a game if it gets us over the hump.

  12. nevermoor nevermoor Jan 6,2014 1:46 pm

    Here’s where it looks like we are:

    Ed: 2
    Ed’s Friend 1: 3
    Ed’s Friend 2: 1
    5Aces: 1-2
    FSU: 4
    EM: 0-2
    Oblique: 2
    Vignette: 1
    Brian: 1

    So that puts us at 15-18. I can do 6 (though would rather do 4-5 if possible), so 18 is enough, but 9 is too many for me.

    Let me know if I’ve miscounted you, or if you want in.

    "There's never enough time to do all the nothing you want"
    • Englishmajor Englishmajor Jan 6,2014 2:58 pm || Up

      I’ll commit to 2 now, which puts us at 17-18.

      • 5Aces 5Aces Jan 6,2014 4:02 pm || Up

        And I will lock in my 2 for the good of the group. So that puts us at 18-18.

        • nevermoor nevermoor Jan 7,2014 10:24 am || Up

          Cool. I’ll call the A’s later today and get the order in. I’d still be happy to have others absorb another 1-2 games if anyone is interested but it is not a deal breaker.

          "There's never enough time to do all the nothing you want"
  13. nevermoor nevermoor Jan 7,2014 4:54 pm

    All right. The order is in.

    Please fire off payments via paypal to my screenname at gmail. IMPORTANT: please use a bank account and mark as a gift so that PayPal doesn’t charge me a transaction fee. If that doesn’t work for you, feel free to email and we can work out a different method.

    Looking forward to another great year. We’ll raffle off the free tix, and plan FKing Suite Day, later in the winter/spring.

      Also, this does not mean it is too late for anyone who wants in for a game or two from my piece.

      "There's never enough time to do all the nothing you want"
    • FreeSeatUpgrade FreeSeatUpgrade Jan 7,2014 5:52 pm || Up

      Confirmed at $91 per game for each pair of tickets?

    NM-better for you to get it all at once? I can get the first one now if you would prefer, but was going to send all on the 15th.

      All at once is fine. I know you reached for the second one.

    Free ticket offer came in. Two tickets on the Field Infield available for most games before the end of May.

    I’m going to dish these out the same way as last year. People have until March 10 to reply to this comment that they would use the tickets. Tickets must be used or given away, not sold. Of the people who affirmatively respond, each will get one chance per paid pair of tickets they’ve purchased. I’ll do the drawing on the 10th, probably using a fantasy sports draft order tool so everyone gets the fair results in their email.

    After that, winner just needs to tell me the day and I’ll redeem/send. I will not be entering the drawing.

      Sure, I’ll throw my name in the hat.

    • Future Ed Future Ed Feb 25,2014 10:31 pm || Up

      I will enter this game of chance.

      I have $5. No I don\'t.
    • FreeSeatUpgrade FreeSeatUpgrade Feb 25,2014 10:49 pm || Up

      As previously noted, since I won the tickets the last two times, I’ll opt out this time around so someone else gets a chance.
