I'm seriously lost and confused on what the plans are for parking and tailgating. Any clarification would be appreciated.

Phlip phlop repairman is organizing some RVrs. Look back through the pages here.

There is also a FB event page that is being kept updated.

My apologies if my post about the grass lot caused the confusion. I posted that here, only because I saw that a couple of people mentioned that they had gotten their vouchers for the grass lot, and my hubby had gotten additional info I thought they or anyone else who was thinking about parking there could use. I did not post it on the FB page that has the 'official' tailgate info.

No KK, you didn't confuse me. I've been confused about who is doing, what, when.

If you aren't going to the grass lots with your RVs, there are those of us lining up to get into the same parking lot we had in 2011. Check out FB.

You should try to call back tomorrow. I just got row 9 in sec E.
I know some have called after the presale to have their seats upgraded.
Maybe you just got a grump who hates his job?
I should expand my previous post about TicketB, by adding that the refund on the lousy pre-sale seats and purchase of better seats was not an automatic accommodation. It wasn't until after I unloaded a severe amount of complaining about their system that the phone rep finally acquiesced and worked a better deal for me. Good luck.

Hate that you had so much trouble. I actually just had a good experience with Ticketmaster (not with Buffett). I bought Fleetwood Mac tickets during the presale - floor seats but about 40 rows back. But during the regular sale, I pulled 10th row seats. I called TM and they exchanged them....rather pleasantly (much to my surprise). I also learned that if you decide you want a refund during the presale (as long as the regular tix have went on sale) they will give you a refund...
There's this one particular harbor.....

I was thinking about all the FFFs I've been to, how it was there I learned about partying with a purpose, even before I joined a Parrothead club, and about all the hard work Mr Play put into making these events not only awesome for us but to benefit others. The Parties That Matter motto is "Sharing so others may live." As most of you know, Mr Play also extends his caring to his professional life, working with Johnathan's Place, a non-profit organization that provides a homelike refuge for abused children.

I've always enjoyed setting up my little charity challenges for Frisco, so I thought hey, no reason to stop now. So here it is, my charity challenge for Frisco, 2013. The theme is:

[smilie=hearts.gif] [smilie=hearts.gif] [smilie=hearts.gif] Johnathan's Place Is In Our Hearts! [smilie=hearts.gif] [smilie=hearts.gif] [smilie=hearts.gif]

I challenge everyone who has ever attended a Frisco Feeding Frenzy, or who will be in Frisco this year, or just wish they could be..........to donate $20 to Johnathan's Place!

I will coordinate and collect the donations. Each donor will be assigned a number. I will send a tax receipt to each donor.
After the tailgate, I will forward the donations to Bill and Johnathan's Place.
I will also post an itemized account listing individual donations per donor number (so those who wish to remain anonymous can do so) and the total amount donated.

If you can donate more, feel free. If you can get others involved, even better (Parrothead club members, co-workers, etc).
I figure if we can manage our phun tickets and the outrageous rent for a little piece of concrete parking lot, we should be able to swing this. We are already up to $40!

You can PM me to get my contact info. Logistically speaking, getting donations mailed to me prior to the tailgate is optimal, although I will take them while I am there. I just may be doing a lot of walkabouts.
I will be posting on the FB event page also, you can PM me there also (Michele Kowalik).


Disclaimer: I managed to convince Bill to give me his blessing (I wouldn't have done this without it), but this charity challenge is completely my idea. I feel that it is a way to help a wonderful cause and as a little side bonus, show Mr Play how much he has always meant to us. A lot of us wouldn't have ever met if he hadn't been there to organize the Frenzies.

I understand those who don't know me personally could be understandably leery about sending money to a stranger. I'm asking my BN friends to step up and vouch for me. I collected the donations to help with Vickster's funeral expenses, and the family got every penny.

I just cooked up this idea this morning, so planning and organization is in the early stage. But I'm ready to roll when you are!!!

Count me in

Same. I'm lost. I just want us all to be together if at all possible. I'd be seriously bummed if that didn't happen. I've been waiting a long time to make it to a FFF again and I just want it to work out. Should we take a poll? I'm willing to go the grass lot route if we want to change ideas in light of the fact that they are reserving folks in groups? Thoughts?

Not confused about the options. Confused about what we, as a group, are going to try to do. I'm up for whatever, but I want to be with the group. Honestly, I like the idea of the grass lots in that we can get vouchers ahead of time, but I like the pavilion location, too, so...

Just let me know where to go, group, and I'll be there!
