I talked to the account rep today. I still don't know if Monday Night Football will be available, but we need to make some decisions here....group tickets will be going on sale Aug 3rd. He confirmed something I have been worried about for a few weeks...if MNF is available, we will need to pay in full immediately to make sure we don't miss out. I was considering floating the payment for everyone, but that would require me knowing the exact # of people going without having any cash to back up those claims. Considering we had over 40 people claim they were interested last year and 9 show up, I'm not willing to take that chance. I don't mind getting stuck with a few extra tickets, but 20-30 would suck.
I have been talking with Enforcer about our options and we decided we should put it up to a vote. Both options will require payment by Aug 2nd!
Option 1) Just plan on going to the Falcons game on 10/23 and forget about MNF
Option 2) Still keep MNF open as an option. This would mean people who only want to go if we get tickets to MNF will still have to pay by Aug 2nd. When you purchase tickets you would send me an email stating your intention...you only want them if we go to MNF or you bought 4 but only want 2 if it is for the Falcons, etc... I would keep track of how many to get in either scenario and would also keep a list of people who have a refund coming if we don't get MNF. I am pretty sure I can refund directly to your credit card on PayPal, but if not, I will deposit the money from PayPal into my bank account and write you a personal check. I have your mailing address once you order, so I can just mail the check to your house.
However this poll stands at the end of the day tomorrow (let's say 10p.m.) is the final decision. Then go to www.podgroupouting.blogspot.com and get your money in. If you already know you are going either way, you can pay now. Let's make sure we have enough to get the group rate this year...we have 6 committed already, we need at least 15. If option 2 is selected, email me at firstname.lastname@example.org to let me know if you only want the tickets if it is MNF. I assume the people who already bought their tickets are in either way???
