Hi everyone. We've got our seats for the meet-up reserved and Patty and I are ready to take your payments for the game August 4th. The Tigers announced that the 4th is going to be the date for Fiesta Tigres, the team's yearly celebration of Latin heritage. I've heard it's a lot of fun to attend.
Due to the huge demand for tickets once Prince Fielder signed as well as the size of our group, we will be split between Section 143 and 141 (chart here). We luckily got our seats set aside before they even went on sale, thanks to a proactive member of the front office that helped me out. Since it's a night game, I'm hoping we can all just spend some extra time that afternoon at our pre-game destination (still TBD, probably Hockeytown), to be sure everyone gets to hang out.
If you're planning to attend the meet-up, please look behind the jump for payment options. I put up my own money for the ticket deposit, so if you are able to pay promptly, it's greatly appreciated.
The preferred and easiest way to keep track of your payments is if you send $38 per ticket to me via PayPal. You can do this by logging into your PayPal account and clicking "send money" to my email address: amh1980 at gmail.com. Please be sure to do two things when you send your payment:
1. Mark it as a "gift" to avoid extra fees being taken out of the transaction. This option is located under the "personal" tab.
2. Put your BYB username - even if you are sure I'll know who you are - as well as your guest's name if you're bringing one somewhere in the notes so I can keep track of who sent what payment.
Patty will be helping me organize once again this year, and she will be assisting those without PayPal. If you would like to pay by check or money order, please email her at pjustice1957 at gmail.com to get her address. When sending her money, please specify your BYB username. She and I are keeping track of everything with a spreadsheet.
We have 50 seats reserved, and I am not counting on being able to get more near the group. I know August seems like a long time from now, but try to decide if you are coming soon before we run out! I hope to see lots of you there, and I will post updates/reminders in a month or so. We're trying to have all tickets accounted for by July 4th. Thanks!
