that's cool, we'll just agree to disagree on that one.Nope, never got them back. It kept reloading the page on my Thursday tickets (like 20 times on it's own) and then said I didn't get them either, but then I got an e-mail with a receipt for my purchase and two tickets.
did you ever get the tickets back in your cart, or did you miss out?
Wasn't trying to start fireworks on the ticket thing. Here to bring insightful thoughts to the board, not troll!
no troll accusations here. We welcome opinions and yours is valid. I'm certainly in the minority plenty and might be here, I just don't agree.
When you look at the cost of an AHA membership you can pay for a substantial portion of it just by saving on Ticketmaster fees with being a member. Plenty become members just for increased chance at tickets. I'm positive the scalpers know this. I guess I'm saying we already have a lot of the "public" in the supposed membership. I also think the event has become slightly less great as enthusiasm increases. I've always blamed the increased interest from the "public" but it is possible us uber beer geeks are just as to blame.
I'm sad that I'm not going but that is not due to ticketmaster issues. I used my set-aside GABF money to attend NHC at the last minute. It was the right decision for me but I'll still miss my annual trip.
I wouldn't mind seeing two member-only sessions next year, with the option to only attend one of them. Or perhaps one event or sub-event where the ticket must match the AHA membership card...
good luck tomorrow on tickets
