Re: What I think is going to happen with tickets!!

The OP and CO both make good points but I hink the Co is more on the money. I think the ORG is more likely to let the chips fall as they may and see what happens. But I would not be opposed to camps like Apok, MASH, HeeBee, BRC skate, etc etc getting special treatment on a small scale. 3000 tix seem...
