Dear CallADocPlease,

Thank you for your commitment to being a member on the Official Winnipeg Jets Wait List for the 2012-13 season. We have completed the process of renewing accounts and offering new Wait List spots that became available after the renewal period. As such we are pleased to announce that there are currently 3667 accounts which represent 8000 seats on the Winnipeg Jets Wait List.

This email is to inform you and confirm that your Official Winnipeg Jets Wait List priority is 2423 for your 2 wait list spot(s). You can also reference your Wait List priority online by logging in to your Winnipeg Jets account and clicking "view/edit settings", then "Manage My Personal Profile".

Please Note: 2423 represents the number of accounts ahead of you on the wait list and NOT the number of seats.

You will receive your official Winnipeg Jets Wait List membership card in the mail by Friday September 21st, 2013. Please ensure your current mailing address is up to date on your Winnipeg Jets account (email if you need to make any changes). Present your card at any "Jets Gear: Powered by Reebok" Team Store located at MTS Centre, MTS Iceplex and St. Vital Mall to receive a 15% discount on regular priced merchandise.

Please watch for information regarding your pre-sale opportunity to purchase the Limited Edition Winnipeg Jets "First Season Book" prior to the general public on-sale.

We sincerely appreciate your support and look forward to an exciting season.

Yours Truly,

Linzy Jones
Director, Ticket Sales & Service

I believe I was one of the first people to register this summer, so looks like there are quite a few ahead of me. Looks like I will have time to finish school before I have tickets, which works great for me.
How utterly bizarre! Not only do you have to pay to be on a wait list but they try to create a strange little subculture and sense of honour at having coughed up money for the privilege of waiting to sit in their cramped, under-sized seats sometime in the future.

What is it, 50 bucks for the privilege of being on the wait list? Damn, that's more than I spent going to a handful of Jets games back in the day.

But hey, you have the opportunity to purchase some over-priced book before anyone else! How thrilling!

As far as NHL fan-suckers go, Winnipeg is in a realm all its own!
