Re: Eliminate ravers to fix ticket problem

But raver chicks are hot.

Why else would I spend $250,000 on my custom Marathon coach with the rooftop spash pool and shower set up.

( Actually I have plans for my own mini-sound camp dedicated to Mel Torme, Nina Simone, Cal Tjader and the likes. )

Also of note - It can still be done this year.

It is not too late. And this would force all "scalper" tickets back into STEP.

** Personally I do not think the problem is scalpers. I think it is raw supply and demand.

Re: Just a buncha' balloons..

I assume you are aware of the balloon LED's generally available. Just google LED Balloon Lights. These are made to be dropped inside a standard 12" - 16" balloon and then inflated.

You can bulk in 200 unit lots for about $0.60 each.

Best of luck!

Martinis and Cal Tjader, Nina Simone, Dave Brubeck, etc.

Re: Why I'm a lottery defender.

The lottery is better than what was before. It has room for improvement, but it is an improvement. From last year on, there will (hopefully) never be a year when everyone that wants to go can go and there will always be people unhappy.

Re: Lets start talking about how to fix this

If there are 50k+ tickets and 1,000 show up in the hands of scalpers, that is less than 2% of all tickets that end up with scalpers.
