I'd like to claim three tickets to any practices you can spare.

I remember them just giving you a huge bundle and you mailed me a pair of practices last season. I'm in Austin so I can't exactly head up to a local Houston Wachovia all that easily.

Cool Re: Training Camp Tickets

I just sent a pre-emptive e-mail to the Texans.

Wachovia changes the rules every year, the DAY they're handing them out. ((and before Wachovia, it was still screwed up, EVERY year).

Sadly, there are only 2 dates AFTER the bar exam

Quote:
I send this e-mail in the hopes the Texans can prevent what has been a rather disastrous event over the last several years. It seems every year there is a problem with fans who try to pick up training camp tickets. I request you please clarify all policies and rules with Wachovia, and print any corrections on HoustonTexans.com.

Problems have included:

-sponsors not being aware of the 6 per person/per game policy
-sponsors requiring fans fill out a form giving personal information to get tickets
-sponsors citing a "day of" change in policy (last year, Wachovia branches only allowed something like a few tickets limited to two training camp dates per branch - despite HoustonTexans.com stating 6 per person per session)

We the fans appreciate the continued free admittance to training camp and are ok with any policies created between the Texans and sponsors. We would just to make sure we know WHAT the policies are advance to plan accordingly.

LMAO!! Hey, last year it wasn't just me!! Wachovia decided (unilaterally) the day of that they were only allowing each person a few tickets to TWO sessions. They said HoustonTexans.com was "mistaken."

Cool Re: Training Camp Tickets

The Texans have assured me that the policy is 6 per person per session, and Wachovia has NO RIGHT to REQUIRE you to fill out anything (though they may REQUEST information).

Should anyone tell you otherwise the day they go on sale, I would take the Texans phone number with you (as printing out the website did not good in past years).

Good luck and happy hunting

I'll be looking for tickets to sessions on 8-1 and later!

Good advise !
I had this problem last year, as the Wachovia Bank I went to here in Clear Lake wouldn't give me but 1 ticket per practice.

That's right.
Quote:
Kubiak said the Texans plan to travel to New Orleans early to work against the Saints in practice.

"I like the way our preseason’s setting up," he said. "I’m going to talk to (Saints head coach) Sean (Payton) here this afternoon. We’re going to take our team down there hopefully on Tuesday night, practice against New Orleans Wednesday, Thursday, by our self on Friday and then play them on Saturday, so it’s just a little change of pace, change of scenery during camp, and work against a very good football team.”

No, it wasn't just you.
I was in one Wachovia where I thought a fight was going to break out.
People were raising their voices as the Wacho.. workers refused to give the tickets out unless you handed over your life story.
It really got bad.
I don't know why they can't just smile and hand out the tickets.:mshadows:

Tickets are available today, right? If I get any BS from the bank this year I'll write letters for sure. To who, I'm not sure, but I'll find out. Last year we had to go to 3 different banks and still didn't get all the tickets we wanted.

I still got to go to all of them....thanks again to Yankee for the inside info.
