Tell us how easy it was to give away those 10 extra tickets…did they all show up…anybody sign up from your guest list and who got the THANK YOU Jersey? Any friends make a solid commitment to coming again during the season
Checked in with the ticket people at the stadium around 3:00pm pre-game and they were kinda standing around coz there were no tickets ton sell.
Best pre-season event since maybe when Caretaker took over… Will have to check.
So please give us some feed back on the new idea
No I am not a member of the front office staff… Just wondering how things went over for future interest/sales for the gutsy move by the team.
SURE HOPE THE MODS LEAVE THIS AS A STAND-ALONE TOPIC… Think it has merit to be on its own rather than the Cat announcement topic listed elsewhere
I brought two families for there first game. We started by tailgaiting at Scott Park. They were not even in the Stadium and they were saying this is Awesome. One of the kids says to his father "WOW,they take this serious here.' LOL, There from Toronto.
They bought Ticats gear. The next day one of the mothers told me their child did not want to take of his Ticats jersey and wanted to wear it to bed and wore it to school the next day.
One of the kids wants to join minor football !
Both families could not believe how much fun they had and want to come back !!
The funny thing about it is i had just as much fun as those kids !! :thup:
As soon as I got the email, I sent a message to my sister asking if she wanted to go with her husband and two kids. Within a few minutes, I got a reply saying, "yes." I called the next day, and ordered 5, 4 for her family, and a 5th for my mom. It turned out that my mom had other plans that she had forgotten about, so there was an extra. I just figured my sister and her family would enjoy a bit of extra bum room, but just a few days before the game, they were at a birthday party for her nephew (on my bro-in-law's side of the family). Without even knowing that my sister had an extra ticket, he said that he'd never been to a TiCats game before but he'd really like to go to one some day. So the 5th ticket got used, and somebody got to go to their first ever TiCat game.
my giveaway, 16 tickets, went exceptionally well.
they went to folks in my building, in a different business unit, and most of them were ticat newbies. they got a group together in approximately four minutes. the team got the tix to me in a most timely manner.
they were hyperexcited to go, and all had a fabulous time. i think several families got turned on to ticat football.
