    You should be able to, you'll just have to stand in line. I bet with us being there we could get them before anybody else could.
    You should be able call and have them hold some tickets for you. ;)


    Edit:

    From that link...

    "Once they go on sale in late September, tickets for all 2006-07 Grand Rapids Griffins regular season games at Van Andel Arena may also be purchased:
    in person at Star Tickets Plus outlets, West Michigan Meijer locations and at The ZONE store on the west side of Van Andel Arena;
    or by phone through Star Tickets Plus at (616) 222-4000 or (800) 585-3737."

    You should also be able to go to the Arena on an off day and buy tickets. Scott, if you are for sure bringing your mom and brother make sure to get them seats. I don't think that the helpers/costumers will actually have seats in the arena.

    I believe 10am on Saturday for set up. If you can't make that, 3pm for meeting and lunch. I hope this is right but will wait for confirmation from TX0338.

    I was thinking the same thing. I'll should be there about 11am if that's ok.
    I also was thinking about picking up some ink for the printer to help out some with that. ;)
    TX0338, is there a good place to pick up some HP Vivera 02 ink?


    Edit:
    Just noticed on the Griffin's home page, it has Star Wars night march 31st up! :cool: Jiri Fischer will also be there signing autographs, perhps I'll bring my red wings jersey. ;)

    EDIT EDIT : 11 days !!!

    Just to let everyone know... Parking will be free and there is already a location for us to park. I will post morre about this next week... or sooner.

    If anyone is interested in getting together this Saturday afternoon let me know. I would like to do a test run of our photo system. If you have a costume and want a good picture of it we can take pictures then.

    I wont have the hardware this weekend to do our test run so it looks like things are canceled. That will give me some time to put together the PDF that will explain most of what will be expected of everyone next weekend. The PDF should have enough info so that way we know what to expect for the day.

    Later,

    Ok, I just did my part for attendance... I just bought 11 tickets for my family and friends.
    I hope some of them pay me back!!

    I talked with my boss and it looks like I'll be able to get out of work @ 2:30pm, so I should be able to get there by 3:00.

    D, I'm sure Rome would let you put it on the MWG for downloading. If not, I have lots of room on BlastyLava.com and we could even put it on R2-Detroit.com. :)

    Ohh, an Aliens quote! That movie is in my top five favorite films (I just lump SW together to make room for others). :D
