    My tickets were waiting for me when I got off work. Anyone who hasn't gotten there's should be worried if they don't get them today.

    I forgot to check my mailbox before I left my house earlier. My tickets probably got stolen. Damnit!

    Those that are in a hurry for tickets will soon be issued a ticket they do not want.

    I can understand making that choice, but I couldn't do it last year and won't this year. It's a very special beer that's more than monetary value worth to me.

    In an effort to contribute to 100 pages, what's your favorite ticket design?

    C and E are close for the top spot, but I'd go:

    Group C
    Group E
    Group A
    Group B
    Group D

    Tickets, blah blah blah... you'll get them, and if you don't, just get there early for the ticket claim line.......Alright let's get this back to what really matters. What bands are playing this year? Goatwhore and who else?

    I have an old "yes" scratch off still. When I roll in on group E to pick my 15 and 16 bottles up should I wave it around and demand a variant?

    Of everyone that already received their tickets. How many of you remember what Mail type you picked? Is everyone getting fedex envelopes or has some received usps envelopes?

    There doesn't seem to be a rule about two bags. I'm thinking about a backpack and a mule bag (which is essentially a large dry bag that is like a satchel bag thingy) you think I can get in with both?

    Got my C tix from etix today, no email.

    I agree that everyone who didn't get a ticket today should be worried in fact if you are group A or B you should make other plans. Even if you get your tickets don't go in protest of this travesty.

    I love this whole system (insert sarcasm here). It's hilarious really. Why even bother telling people you'll email them tracking info and they get the tickets without ever receiving any notice? Last year my friend received the email that the tickets were on the way...days after he received our tickets.

    I also got my Group C tix today in a USPS envelope. I did not choose a delivery method when buying the tickets so USPS was obviously the default

    Work took me by Deviate brewing in Indy today. They were having a "420 Smoke out" featuring every kind of slow cooked smoked meat imaginable.... just as delicious as the beer.

    Now I am drinking high abv to drown my sorrows and also to prep my body (liver) for my first DLD since I have no tix yet. No rules 15% should be a good start! All you early envelope holders should rot in hell!

    I too passed on Group C in hopes for an in-person Group A ticket.

    If they don't do in person, I'll personally take a crap on the stoop to the pub the night before the day before. Or something like that. Maybe in the planter box where they won't see it, but where it would surely stink up the entry way for all the out-of-towners waiting on line hoping to score a seat in the pub.

    Not a criticism of you at all, but curious why people care so much about group A? I've had Handjee.. and it's excellent. But definitely not a make or break for me attending the festival

    Don't get me wrong I'd love to be group A.. but C is a very nice consolation.

    Especially when my DLD's I've had E and now D

    I don't normally (ever?) comment on spelling, but since you were spelling out an acronym most of us probably didn't know...it's Obeyed.

    Anyone else get the variant listing in their package with the tickets? :wink:
