ORIGINAL EVENT ANNOUNCEMENT

  1. The most popular choice for ticketing is the private suite for the Class.  Space is limited in a suite.  Space will be allocated based on DTG at sign in.  Those outside the cutoff DTG will be placed on a waiting list.
  2. Choice of suite must be made soon.  When the suite is reserved, you will be notified and a deposit will be required.  Amount is TBD. 
  3. Group seating in general admission area will be available for those that are not in the suite.
  4. Accurate headcount is needed to determine which suite to reserve.  If you think you might want to attend, and you have not registered, you should do so ASAP.  Use the RSVP link below. 

Rod has suggested we determine if there should be a Class get together for the 2023 game.  The purpose of this survey is to determine if there is enough interest to warrant a Class event. The current general plan is for a Class dinner Friday, game Saturday AM, Class dinner Saturday PM, and maybe a Sunday brunch if that works out.

One of the options for the game is a private suite like the one the Class had for the games held in Texas.  Big screen monitors for close ups and replays. Plenty of room to gather and talk.  Hi top table for eating and drinking.  Easy chairs for relaxing.  All you can eat and drink.  A first class operation.  Considering that this is an open-air stadium, this might be a very popular choice.  Cost for this option will likely be about $250 per ticket plus food, beverages, and parking. 

A second option will be Class group seats in the general admission locations.  Ticket prices for the various options are TBA at this point.

Lodging for the Class will be at a local hotel.  Details of this TBA.

 

We need to quickly find out if there is enough interest for a Class Event for this year’s game.  Use the link below to give us a quick and preliminary answer as to whether you might want to join the Class for the game.  This response is not a firm commitment.  If you are interested we will be back to you with more details and list of ticketing options.  Time is of the essence, so answer as soon as you can.
