Habs ticket offering to season tickets holders for all-star game
 
My regular season tickets are Class "C" reds, behind the net.

I just got by the mail my ticket offering for the all star game.

As the league takes over control of the tickets, it is normal not to expect the same seats.

However, the offering is for two tickets in the "Blue" area, section 435 to be more precise.

They want a total of $632.11 for the two events, $100 per ticket for the skills, $150 per ticKet for the game, GST' QST and a $60 "administration charge".

As much as this is a once-in-a-lifetime event, I am thinking about turning theoffer down.

I'd like to know your opinion and if someone would be interested in the tickets, let me know.

Damn, that is pricey, considering where your seats are. Tough call.

That is a lot of $$$ for a game most folks do not watch all of on TV, if at all.

The skills are fun to watch, but at that price it would be quite a bit I think

What gives with these administration fees for everything anymore. You have to pay somebody for the activity of selling you something.

At $30 per seat ($60 for the pair),counting around 20,000 seats, this "little" administrative fee is a quick $600,000 for "Uncle George"...

Man thats a LOT of $$ to expect for tickets in the Blues ... I wouldn't pay that to go to the All-Star game.

Luckily, my seats are a bit closer to the action. I only have tickets to the Skills, but at least I'm in the reds
