Anyone else received their season tickets, I got mine Saturday morning. It also came with a gift, one we haven't received before.

Got mine today...attack of the noon games!

The gift is OK, could be worse, could be better.

New Fan Code of Conduct no longer mentions the Bull Pen as anything other than a seating area...can't wait to see if that means we can expect folks to ask us to sit down this year. :fingergun:

Just received one set of mine. Already knew about the gift, so wasn't surprised by that. I already have about 5, so doesn't mean that much to me. REGARDLESS, nice to have them in my hands, just makes me feel a little closer to my favorite game.

OK, mine left Fort Smith the same time yours did (Jul. 22, 7:29 PM) and that is the very last update I have. They're not scheduled to arrive until tomorrow (Tuesday) but it'd be nice to see they've made it to Texas at least.

Interesting... How did it reference the Bull Pen in past seasons? It basically outined us as a section that stood throughtout the game and supported the team in "an enthusiastic manner". It advised that due to these reasons that we might not be a good fit for those with young children.

After Tim's (Overalls) debacle a few years ago, I'm gun-shy about the removal of those references. Nothing like getting kicked out for actually standing at a game. :rolleyes:

He was told to sit down after fans behind him complained about him standing.

They have made changes, such as pamphlets that offer to recloate you if you don't want to be in the Bullpen and regular security folks who are briefed on Bullpen behavior.

Yeah... I'd change the rules to accomodate him too. My logic would be out of fear though... he's a rabid giant!!

I am impressed..you actually knew what we have received...Other than the flag and the 500 planners, I have forgotten every other thing we got...then again, they all found their way into the "recycle" bin except for the flag...!!

Our Platinum ones have been that way since the beginning. I'm actually surprised they haven't made the other lots larger before now. Makes sense so the yellow shirts can read them easier.

According to the website, we're still good. Though I'm a bit uneasy about it disappearing from the handbook. Might need to make some calls.

I think it's wasteful. I don't understand how the color coding and box car letters would be difficult for yellow shirts to read unless education ended with kindergarten. No sweat though, I guess it's all in the cost of doing business.

It's a matter of distance. Bigger letters are seen further away much easier. As far as the education of the yellow shirts - you might be on to something there.....

I waited for the lockout to end before I ordered my tickets, I didn't have a PSL to lose and wasn't really attached to my seats from last year so it wasn't a big deal. But now I have to wait for my tickets to come in. Probably will take two more weeks. :/

Just realized I haven't posted on this forum for so long! Even though I checked it almost everyday.

I didn't get a blanket for each of my tickets! I have two accounts, six tickets total. I got two blankets. Always been that way, except for last year. Always thought they went by accounts. Roc, you are the only person I know that got a gift per ticket. LUCKY you!!:thisbig:
