When we were in Orlando the other night, I noticed the ticket prices on the advanced order form for next year. Front row seats are going to be $100! This year they were $95, and I would've gotten front row if I'd known they were available, but on the order form I printed out from the SOI website showed that the front row seats were already sold out (and this was back in September or October).
Well, on Friday I was on the SOI board (can I say that?) and someone had posted that they had gotten on Ticketmaster to find out what kind of seats were still available and they found front row! I had to see that for myself so I tried searching for three front row tickets and found them! I was not happy. But I got over it, sort of.
I know I won't be ordering front row seats in advance for next year. In fact, I'm not ordering anything in advance for next year. I know I'm likely to have zilch left after Nats, so I figure if it turns out that we can go next year, I'll just wait until after Nats to order them. Or I'll just save my money and go to the Jacksonville scrapbook convention, if they have one next year. I think I'd get more for my money that way.
I am wondering something though. For those of y'all that have already been to SOI this year, what kind of prices are on your advanced ordering forms?
I was not crazy about SOI skipping Jax this year, but I was happy with the weather and the good shopping in Orlando, so I guess it all evened out.
Anybody have any thoughts?
BTW, this should be my 100th post.
