    Valedakor posted this breaking bit of info on the LAFF boards:

    "I have received the e-mail notification from the Bowl's ticket office that group ticket sales will open on Monday morning, January 8. The dates this year are:

    FRIDAY AND SATURDAY, JULY 13 AND 14, 8:30 PM

    He is practically starting the season off this year!

    I have to give them a general idea of how many tickets we'd want. Obviously, I'm only interested in the Saturday night concert.

    Last year we paid $34.00 each, for Section N1 in the front; they might be a dollar or two more, I don't know yet. I'll probably go for that type again, maybe a little more in the center. I bought 21 tickets last time."

    I've asked how the pre-booking works to see if we pay later or all in advance. I'll update once I find out.

    I wonder if it will be purely Star Wars themed for the 30th Anniv?

    This was great last year and i'm thinking of going again this year, especially if it's pure Star Wars. [face_praying]

    No such thing, unfortunately!! If you can start saving now, it's so worth it to go! However, it's only a month after C-IV and a week before the Comic-Con.

    I think it's time for me to get a third job!!!

    That sounds like fun...I am definitely interested. A few years back we went to "Festival Under the Stars" at I forgot the name of the place, but it's right by the Santa Anita racetrack, and it was music from movies, like Harry Potter, Close Encounters of the Third Kind, Indiana Jones, and yes, Star Wars. It was really cool to hear those familiar songs played by a live symphony.

    We would be interested since we could not attend last September at the Bowl. Two maybe three tickets, please. We went a couple of years ago, and I didn't bring my lightsabers. What a mistake. This time I will bring them.

    Is it too late to get in on the tickets? I'll need two. Hopefully I'll be at Celebration Europe...but just in case don't want to miss out on this. After all, why should Miana and Tony have all the fun? ;)

    Thanks!!

    AaS, have you got any information about this yet? Helen (LAFF) already has 2 rows reserved. If we're gonna do this, I think we need to get it taken care of now.

    Hey all

    I have received some responses from
    liningup.net about going to the Williams concert. Perhaps
    we can combine our requests into one large group?
    Do not have a total count yet from the liningup peeps.

    It didn't sell out until the week of the concert last time so we should have plenty of time.

    We can kick it all off at our meeting on Sat. I'll dig up the ticket prices.

    Ok, folks, we'll sort out how were going to do this all at the meeting on Saturday but something to think over is the prices for the Saturday concert.

    Closest $35
    Section M $24
    Section L1 $22
    Then $17 then way at the back $9

    There's a group booking charge as well and we'll divide that by the number of people.

    IEFF Members will have priority on our group allocation. Once we arrange how we plan to get the tickets we can then see if we can add more to our order.

    JF77 (Treasurer) and I will go through how we plan to do this at the meeting on Sat.

    LAFF will be in section M so I propose we aim to get in that area too.

    In the meantime i'll start a list of who's interested so far.

    Saturday 14th July

    He lives in Oregon now. Moved in with dad over vacation. Who knows where he'll be in July. :confused:

    I'd rather have an extra ticket than not enough.

    I spoke with JF77 and here's what we'd like to do:

    2 Rows would be 28 tickets in section M working out to be $25 ea. To make the booking we will need a 30% deposit ($205) at the time of booking. The remainder will be due about 2 months before the concert at which time you need to make sure you pass the remainder for your tickets to us so we can pay the bowl and let them know if they can have some seats back. If not paid in full by the time we need to make the payment your seat will go back to the Bowl to sell to the general public.

    So if your coming to the meeting this weekend and you want a ticket for it please bring $7.50 per ticket to contribute toward the deposit and hand it to Jedifan77. If you want to pay for your full ticket now you can go ahead and do that and JF77 will look after it as our keeper of the credits.

    If you can't make the meeting PM myself or Jedifan77 and we'll sort some way for you to get the $7.50 to one of us.

    As soon as we have enough to cover the 30% we'll make the booking (I may be able to cover some more of it but would rather have most if not all of it paid in advance.)

    Any questions please let me know in this thread or via PM.

    Just let me know how you want it paid for (Paypal?, Check mailed?, John William's weight in Churros? ;) ) and I'll get you the $$ to cover our tickets.

    My ticket's included with Tony's group.

    I'll pay for mine in whole but there's no way I'm covering Tony's butt on those! :p

    I think we're going to wait until it closers to see if we're going or not. Where we sat in Sept. was away from you guys, but it was perfect for Ryan. I have a feeling if we go that's what he wants to do again. I've tried asking him about it right now and he's sick, so that makes it even harder for him to figure out what he wants to do. So, if we go, we'll probably try to get seats in the area we got last time and just hook up with you guys before or after the concert.

    Hey Kim! Yep, I got your payment and owe ya a 19 cent refund!

    As soon as I get one more person to pay for or give me their deposit on their ticket/s, I can make the reservations.

    I need a minimum of $10 per ticket ordered or you can pay for the whole thing. We'll have seat for more than just IEFF members, so let me know if your interested!
