I just got off the phone with Clint from sales at the Columbus Blue Jackets. He said it’s a go for the Sun Feb 10 game against the LA Kings. Puck drops at 6pm. I am uber nervous about setting this all up.
Depending on our numbers (100+ people), we may be able to have the Sky Terrace otherwise we will be in section F in the Upper Level [read safety concerns for folks looking DOWN during a hockey game!] I am trying to keep the tickets at or below the $25 mark. Does that seem reasonable?
Feb 9th is my birthday so he said we could do the “Birthday Bash” package which would include a Blue Jackets hat, hot dog and Pepsi for everyone. We may also be able to get Stinger to come up and hang out. I am still trying to keep us in the mid $20 range. I told him that $35/ ticket may keep out casual folks who would be going more for the social event than the actual game 😉
Also, I need to contact Interweave about whether they can do some kind of goody bag like they did for the Avalanche and to see what else I need to do on their end. I also need to look into sponsorship from LYS in Columbus…so much to do!
Please give me feed back. The more people I can tell them we *definitely* have on board the more we may be able to get out of it.
