I was one of the lucky few AHA members to get through the Ticketmaster morass last week, and ended up with tickets for a couple of the sessions. Unfortunately, I won't be able to make the Friday session, so I've got two tickets, which I will sell at face value ($130 total), plus the TM service charge ($3.50), plus the PayPal charge ($3.17)--the whole thing comes to $137.67. I've heard a lot of horror stories about AHA members buying airline tickets and hotel rooms, only to be stuck without any tickets to the event, and I'd like to help a couple of those get to the event. Since I don't want these to end up in the hands of scalpers, anyone interested in them will need to send the following to firstname.lastname@example.org:
1. A copy of your CURRENT AHA membership card--please black out the membership number and everything beyond the first letter of your last name.
2. A copy of a receipt for an airline ticket to Denver from your city of origin--again, please black out all personal information (other than the name, which should match the one on the membership card).
I will review all the e-mails I receive by 12:00 am EST on Wednesday morning, August 8 and randomly choose one that provides the required information. The winning entry can handle the payment via PayPal. Tickets are the Ticketfast print-outs, so I can either mail them to you or forward the .pdf file.
This is not a scam--I'm just trying to make sure that the tickets go to a fellow beer lover, and not someone who's out to profit from them.
