Re: Do the math: over 50% of tickets went to scalpers

Let's see BM grows less than 10,000 people a year, even shrinking one year, but when a Lottery is announced against a backdrop of last year's network news about $1600 tickets on Craigslist, we suddenly jump from 54k to 133k ticket requests. Oh I want to believe it is the message of Burning love and...

Re: Ticket fiasco reaction from the LLC

I don't love this. Tickets should be free-roaming and transferrable. But tickets would still be free roaming and transferable, just without a scalping charge and for those that will actually attend. There are some additional work-arounds that would need to be set up and can be addressed to minimize...

What do you do when the scalpers have half of the tickets I'm willing to bet that scalpers do not have anywheres near half of the tix.

Not at all too late to make a positive change to this mess. Names can still be put on tickets . Ask those that won the lottery for the names, now. Either that, or it goes back into the STEP.
