Front Row Seats 2019 69

Finally!

The tickets have changed hands, and there are lots of differences in the way they’ll be managed. For my sanity I’m using a google sheet this year; highlighted dates are already taken (green is George’s folks, gold is us), post your requests in the comments here. I’ll grab dates as soon as I see them, and if we subsequently have conflicts among ourselves we can resolve them here and update the spreadsheet accordingly.

Also this year there is no VIP parking, and tickets will almost certainly be distributed electronically.

    I only have view access to the Google doc, so I assume you mean requests go in the comments here.
    Requesting 3/30 and 5/25.

      Yes – I’ve clarified comments here, not on the sheet.

      And I notice you jumped right on that Rally Candle promotion.

        Oh yeah.
        (Actually, if anyone else here has a strong desire for 5/25 I could switch to 5/26.)

    I’ll take 04/21, 06/16, and 08/17 if possible.

    so I don’t see 3/20?

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

      One of the pluses of this new system is that if the date is available it’s yours – no waiting for confirmation.

        cooooool. Can I borrow $500?

        I have $5. No I don\'t.
      • ptbnl Mar 11,2019 11:20 pm || Up

        … which should be taken as confirmation of all 3, assuming I read that right.

    7/31
    8/20

    and FKers be alert, I may not be able to make 4/17

    • ptbnl Mar 11,2019 7:59 pm || Up

      Assuming I read FSU’s request correctly (for all 3 dates), 8/20 is already taken.

          No, but I should brew a mosaic smash for the meeting.

    I’ll have to take a pass this year. I can only go Mondays and Tuesdays for the most part and that seems to be the greenies choice as well. Thanks again for coordinating!

    • Future Ed Future Ed Mar 14,2019 2:46 pm || Up

      If you see a monday or tuesday of mine that you think you could go let me know. I will gift it to you

      I have $5. No I don\'t.
      • Future Ed Future Ed Mar 14,2019 5:11 pm || Up

        btw, this applies to everyone. I will gladly trade, or simply give you games. I mean, I will keep some (or all!), but if you see a date that works better for you that I have, let me know

        I have $5. No I don\'t.
      • batgirl batgirl Mar 14,2019 5:40 pm || Up

        Oh thanks–I’ll take a look and let you know! Very nice of you :)

        • FreeSeatUpgrade FreeSeatUpgrade Mar 14,2019 6:35 pm || Up

          Ditto with Tues 8/20 for me.

    Question to show off my All Access ignorance:

    Since these are season tickets, do we all get to use the All Access benefits on that day with our ticket? Or do you get some sort of card, dongle, etc that let’s you get the food and swag discounts?

      You get a card (with your picture on it) and also a QR code in the Ballpark App (which does not have a picture, so can probably be abused)

        And I think the awesome $10 parking deal needs to be purchased in advance online.

    So we are indeed going to try to do everything electronically this year.

    If you do have an A’s account, please could you send the email address to me at jdborrill at lbl dot gov and I’ll forward your tickets along with the total cost.

    If you don’t have an A’s account, could you either (and preferably) set one up and send me the email address or, if that crosses a line for you, email me the address you’d like the home-printed ticket mailed to.

    There are still 4 games left, including “opening day”.

      do we paypal you still?

      I have $5. No I don\'t.
    • Future Ed Future Ed Mar 16,2019 7:38 pm || Up

      i can’t believe they are charging premium prices for a spring training game

      I have $5. No I don\'t.
  12. ptbnl Mar 16,2019 7:32 pm

    I have mixed feelings about how it has gone this year. The obvious efficiencies save me a huge amount of time, but all the seats filled up very fast and I realize I’ve always enjoyed being able to pick random orphaned games through the season.

    Tangentially, colin, our project director saw this going up during the collaboration meeting last week, and it turns out he was the catcher on his high school’s Illinois state championship team.

    I can’t believe it’s March 20th and we’re already done FRS-ing for the season.

    Where are the weeks-long waits for news, the interminable post updates, the searching for stamps, the addressing of envelopes (one of the last bits of handwriting I was doing), the trips to the post office courtesy of a theft-prone home mailbox …

    Where are the seats of yesteryear?

      There there. There there.

      Given this start just wait. There is the potential that you will magically hear that seats are “now available” starting in late May or so.

        Late May or so is when we start our push!

  16. ptbnl Mar 28,2019 11:21 am

    The good news is that we now have free VIP parking passes for every game. They’re printed and individually dated, so I’ll be picking them up and distributing them ASAP.

    The bad news is that I now have a bunch of pre-paid $10 parking passes that I won’t need – any takers?

    • Soaker Soaker Mar 28,2019 12:29 pm || Up

      They’re pre-paid but not dated? I take it only the VIP ones are dated. I could use a few undated ones.

      • ptbnl Mar 28,2019 12:33 pm || Up

        Yes – the free VIP parking ones are paper and dated, the pre-paid general parking ones are electronic and open.

          OK, I don’t want to hog too many if other people want them, but I’ll take up to four. E-mail me! Please use travelbyerics at geemail.

            Will do – and no problem about hogging, I can always get more for people.

      • andeux andeux Mar 28,2019 5:39 pm || Up

        The person collecting for parking today looked at my printed-from-home general parking pass, muttered something about how they didn’t know what to do with it, and waved me through. So presumably I can use that one again.

        TINSTAAFK
    • 5Aces 5Aces Mar 28,2019 12:44 pm || Up

      I can definitely use one for my game.

        For your front row seats game you’ll get free VIP parking.

      VIP parking passes went out in the mail a couple of days back – hopefully everyone receives them OK and in time.

    So, I’ve had a whole bunch of cancellations on my front row seats this Sunday. If anyone is interested in meeting at the Coli and getting a free ticket to front row this Sunday 04/21, let me know.

  18. FreeSeatUpgrade FreeSeatUpgrade Jun 26,2019 6:51 pm

    Hey FKers, turns out I can’t use the Front Rox seats on Friday 9/21. Fireworks night vs the Rangers. Let me know if anyone wants them.
