Lost: DPW Hoodie *FOUND*

I seem to have lost my most precious DPW hoodie out there this year. all the signs at this point lead to it being stolen from my camp. I'd hate to believe this so if any of you found a hoodie, full zipper, Jerk church patch on right front, Special Projects patch on right elbow, Bat Country police pa...

Re: Is this a scam?

since the guy is willing to meet you in person, guide you through the entire process, and wait with you for the confirmation this actually looks like a valid ticket. fishy but valid, since he will probably be selling you a volunteer/artist/somesortofBMOrg ticket. is he taking a fee on top of the tic...

Re: European and International Shipping for Tix

another way could be the General Delivery (AKA Posta Restante) services. call 1-800-ASK-USPS and check which post office in Reno offers general delivery services. then mail the tix to that post office under the recipient name. the post office will hold the envelope for 30 days and will only release ...

Re: tortoise cruises

one thing that I still don't understand is how do they have tickets to the event itself (unless they were issued tickets as part of the 10K allocation). Pre-sale or flooding the lottery, same as anyone else. Easy as pie to simply put in a bunch of entries, then cap your number of trips with tickets...

That's great news, MIse! :lol: The queue has been a little slow this week and tickets are dribbling out. It will be interesting to see the pace of STEP once the tickets are mailed out in June. Good luck! I don't think the queue is slow, I just think that there are a lot of people on the 12:09 slot....

What you can do is request the person to change his ticket to a Will Call ticket, then you can do a name transfer procedure on the will call ticket.

having a group count as one during the lottery makes the entire group more vulnerable on the lottery. there are other solutions.

Re: New system will facilitate a secondary market

I see my predictions were SPOT ON!

people registering for 2 tix even when they only need 1, people using friends / family to improve their chances and BMOrg seeing what happened decided to establish an official secondary market.

Re: Denied a pre-sale ticket??

No, there weren't 7000 - there were 3000 tickets. Don't worry though, your registration info will carry forward into the main sale, where you'll have three chances at a total of 40,000 tickets (instead of a single chance at 3,000 tickets). Good luck, and in the likelihood you are awarded tickets in...

Re: New system will facilitate a secondary market

But the FAQ says that BMorg will create a system for transferring tickets earlier then June. this means that sales of tickets on the secondary market can commence once this system is in place, people won't have to wait for June to start scalping.
