Head Count For Saturday, 10/3 vs. Carolina

Hi folks,

I've checked the results from the poll I posted last week, and going ahead I've decided to focus on the two games that drew the most votes. I talked with my rep in the Bruins' sales department and she says they don't know yet whether there's a catch to buying group tickets to either of these games yet, as there was for the Detroit game people were interested in last year (i.e. the requirement that an equal number of tickets be bought for opening night). So going forward I'm going to assume for the time being that there isn't. Having said that, who's in for this game? Please let me know when you get a chance, and of course please specify the number of tickets you need. Thanks!

Andy

Andy: What would the cost of the tickets be and is there a hotel close by to the rink that I'd be able to walk from one to the other ?

If all can fit the budget and the warden gives the okay I'd have to say I'm in.

Thanks in advance.

To be perfectly honest the rep from the Bruins sales office says they don't have pricing as of yet, and probably won't until late August. For what it's worth, the seats we sat in last year were $55.50 a pop. I think it's pretty safe to say that you can count on paying at least that much this year as well.

As for hotels, there are many within walking distance of the Garden -- but be forewarned, hotel space in Boston tends to be rather pricey. As far as which hotels would be best to stay at, I'll leave that to somebody who would know more about it than I. Please let me know if you have any other questions. Thanks!

Just booked a room at the Omni Parker house for New Year's Eve. They are running a special where you get 15% off if you pay 21 or more days in advance.

The $199 room I reserved cost about $180 including taxes/fees.

Small room, nice hotel not too far from the Garden.

I just booked at the Boston Marriott in Cambridge and locked in an $84 AAA rate for 2 nights

Andy, I will tentatively say yes to 2 tix. Waiting on a few things...

Hi, Trav. I won't really need a final count until about the time group tickets go on sale, which will probably happen some time shortly before tickets go on sale to the general public. I'm guessing that'll be either in late August or early September. I hope you can make it, but if not I understand. Keeping a roof over your head is obviously very important, and in this economy it's not a given.

I will most likely be in for this again, it was such a blast last year.

Trav, you really need to make it happen, I need my drinking buddy again.

When the schedule was released, I emailed my friends and told them I'm going to that game. So I'm in.

When do they go on sale?

I'll be there, don't need a ticket.

If you want me to organize something at the Grille again to meet up before the game, let me know.

It's my girlfriend's birthday as well. I think she'd be up for a game on this day, so I'm most likely in for 2 tickets.

i would post the link to the photos, but they FINALLY took the listing off the net. we had an offer accepted, signed a P/S, and have a closing date set for 8/10. the only thing left is the mortgage approval, which should be coming in within a week. its a short sale, so we've been getting jerked around a little (closing was supposed to be in june), hoping that 8/10 is the lucky day though.

i have not signed my life away either, but im pretty stoked about this place. congrats to you as well! scary, but exciting stuff this is.
