    Well that is kind-of a bummer, a day after I buy my Thursday night tickets. . .

    damn, what is with WTF and 2 consecutive Thur nights? I hate using a vacation day just to drink beer on a Thur night. The majority of people coming to these events have to work on Fridays.

    This is GABF. I use vacation for most of the week.

    Yep, kind of annoying. But not buying tickets for Thursday GABF and hoping to get tickets for What the Funk (who knows how hard that'll be?) would probably drive me crazy until 8/20 anyway.

    Good looking out, Todd! Cannot wait for this. Will be hiding at work to make sure I can get tickets! :slight_smile:

    Edit....wait. tickets on sale at 6 am? Is that real?

    That's what the email from the WTF!?/Crooked Stave team says. Says 6am on the ticket page too. I questioned it, but they haven't said otherwise.

    Set your alarms.

    How quickly did this sell out last year?

    Think it went pretty fast. Most people knew if they got shut out of GABF tickets and already had plans to come into town.

    Haha kinda dick move there, Crooked Stave, to announce this a few days after GABF sales. Although I'm sure that's the point.

    I emailed wtf@crookedstave.com before GABF tickets went on sale and they told me it was Thursday, Oct. 2nd. While you're right it wasn't formally announced, it wasn't impossible to find out when it was before you bought tickets.

    Not sure if it's political or not, as I believe last year it was somewhat in response to those that didn't get into GABF, so they waited until after the GABF lottery? I'm not sure, but sounds like date was set in advance.

    So that means they withheld information on purpose? :grimacing:

    And so did you? Why do you hurt me? :slight_frown:

    Add me to the list of those bummed out. Only pulled the trigger on Thursday session for GABF this year...may need to see if I can trade or pickup tickets for Saturday afternoon instead. =(

    I didn't withhold it, I was just cautious posting on BA since it wasn't official, I didn't want to tell everyone the wrong date... that would have been worse. I was just saying, it doesn't hurt asking them.

    Heck, some people I told still bought tickets for Thursday.

    Saturday is where it's at for the GABF anyway....and if you already bought Thursday tickets you can unload them for face value super easy and quick

    WTF is going to be amazing so be there or be less cool somewhere else

    I choose to be less cool at GABF that night. Unless I change my mind. Pretty interesting stuff.

    I heard no first dibs on tickets, so whatever the limit is, it'll be the same for everyone.

    If it is true that CS members get no dibs on tickets, that's a major bummer. It was one of the major perks of joining, imo.

    The bright side is that we have 14 more mornings to practice waking up early before we reach game day.
