2020 Front Row Seats 38

We don’t have the individual game prices yet, nor is the group spreadsheet open for business, but we should start collecting our requests for when it is.

There’s a google sheet just for us here which anyone should be able to edit – simply add your name to the games you’d be interested in. I’ve included multiple FKer columns per game so it’s not a race against time. We can figure out any conflicts in the comments once everyone has had a chance to make their requests and we know the prices.

        Continued replies because thats what we do sometimes.

        And yes, what FSU said-such a great treat.

    Sort of related: 7/19 against the Astros is Bleacher tribute giveaway night. That has to be some sort of garbage can drum now, doesn’t it?

    Added a couple-flexible on dates though if someone as has a real “need”.

    No more dynamic pricing! Each seat is $54.87 for every game, so $109.74 for the pair.

    Apparently there is dynamic pricing after all (despite explicit instruction to the contrary from the A’s season ticket office) but they won’t tell the ticket-holder what the prices are.

    If anyone has any high-priority games (eg. birthdays, friends in town, etc) can you let me know since we’ll honor those first in the coming request-trading.

    Looks like we’re close to settling this first round of requests.

    We only have one no-go date – vignette17 on May 10th.

    At this point, rather than add to our spreadsheet (which I likely won’t notice) let me know here if there are additional dates you’d like. Hopefully the full spreadsheet will go live shortly.

    The remaining available dates are currently:

      Breaking news – we finally have the individual game prices. Please check the spreadsheet ASAP and let me know if you want to withdraw any of your requests due to their cost.

      • vignette17 Feb 18,2020 5:25 pm || Up

        I would like to withdraw both of my requests :-(. Too rich for my blood. I guess I will request May 9 instead.

        • ptbnl Feb 18,2020 6:03 pm || Up

          Done – sorry about the confusion.

      Does the cross-out of my name mean that game is unavailable?

      • ptbnl Feb 19,2020 9:26 am || Up

        No – it means I forgot to update our sheet as well as the master sheet (it was briefly unavailable but then became available again!)

        Currently the only outstanding question is andeux on March 29th (probably unavailable, to be confirmed); vignette17’s game on May 10th is a definite no, but May 9th is in.

        • ptbnl Feb 20,2020 11:07 am || Up

          Latest update – andeux gets March 29th after all.

    If still available, I’d like to request Monday, Sept 14. Thanks!

    Soaker edit: This was sitting in the moderation queue for some reason although I see ptbnl already replied to it.

    Good news is that the seats are in!

    Bad news is that the A’s inability to process my Access Membership at more than a glacial pace (pre-warming) means I can’t yet forward them on to you all.
