For those of you registered, the drawing was already held - we should be notified today if we get the right to purchase Sox ALCS tickets or not...

Good luck all

So... if we registered once for the ALDS tickets, does that registration also include ALCS and WS lotteries? Or do we have to register separately for each one? I wasn't sure after reading the instructions, but it seemed like we had to register for each one.

For this season, I got it too and did for the ALDS also. It's the same presale for 27 game and full season ticket holders to buy extras.

I was under the impression that you only needed to register once. If you weren't selected in the ALDS, you could still win the opportunity for ALCS or WS. As a SPC member, I was entered automatically.

Thanks, everyone, for the info. Guess I'll just sit tight and wait for an email.

There are two different things being discussed in this thread. Season ticket holders have the opportunity to purchase additional ALCS tickets tomorrow in a pre-sale. The general public also had the opportunity to register for post season tickets on Whitesox.com. My understanding is that you only had to register once for the whitesox.com lotto. This is different than the season ticket holders pre-sale.

According to the web site those notification e-mails will go out on 10-2 not today 10-1.

But yes the drawing was already held.

I alas did not 'win' ALDS purchase opportunity.

The white sox website pretty clearly stated that you only had to register once for all drawings.

I love on this site when some asks a question, the first person to respond is completely wrong and then chaos breaks out for the next 10 posts or so.

Yeah, they changed it again. The e-mails were originally supposed to go out on Tuesday, then they changed it to today, and now they've changed it to tomorrow.

Full STH - was able to pick up an extra pair to Home Game 1 (Sec 101) and 3 (Sec 103)

as Ozzie holders:

I got 2 for ALCS Game 1 from my plan (Sec 556, Row 15)

My buddy got 2 for ALCS Game 2 from company plan (Sec 555, Row 3)

WOO HOOOO!
Hope we get to use them :bandance:

With the Ozzie plan I got two tickets each for home games 2 and 3. Section 520 row 9 for both games.

jabrch
10-02-2008, 11:33 AM
I am still surprised that some people get better tickets this way than I get for my 27 game package... (155, R35)

I'm sure there is some rhyme and reason - I just don't know what it is.

I agree. The tickets I picked up today are better than the ones I got in my 27 game package.

I got 2 for game 1 section 540 and 2 for game 3 section 101. These are not as good as the ones I got for game 2 through my weekend plan which are in sec 116 IIRC. But I'm not complaining either...

As a 4 ticket Ozzie plan holder, I just got 4 for game 3, section 527 row 18. Pretty high up there, but close to home plate. I'm pumped, hope they make it that far.

Same here. Although I also wonder why I always see different people a few rows in front of me every game I go to and yet I haven't been able to improve my seats in 3 years. I can't believe that everyone in front of me is simply selling all their tickets to other people (I sit upstairs so the demand for tickets in my area is not that high).

I got an additional 4 tickets upper tank for game 1 of the ALCS on the season ticket pre sale today. The best available was Sec 559 row 6 seats:bandance: 1-4. Hopefully these tickets will need to be used!

That's not good. You are not even sitting in the stadium. There is no section 559 in the Cell.

Printed mine out this morning. Section 546, home game 1. I think the general public sale is tomorrow (10/2). From 10am CT to 10pm CT. I also got the chance to buy NLCS tickets for the Brewers. Goodbye money. Maybe I will just sell those ones though.

Edit: Just got another E-mail. I get to buy Cubs NLCS tickets. SELL SELL SELL.

I would guess only upper deck is available and I would log in and get seats the minute they go on sale.

Stay friends with this friend. Draw them closer. Buy them lots of beer.

Me, I got a double whammy.
1) I got the "sorry, you were not selected" e-mail from the Sox:angry::whiner:
2) I got a "winner" e-mal from the Cubs lottery for NLCS tix...as they are looking to go down 0-2, at home, to the Dodgers. My prospects of financing ALCS and/or 2009 tix with Cub fan $$$ is not looking too good...:angry::whiner:

If games aren't play, we only pay the processing fee which us $3.50. Nothing else such as the convenience charge?

I was one minute late, went for Game 1 first, only had 558 available, went to Game 2, nothing available, bought game 6, then went back to Game 1, nothing, bought game 7.

Who knows? Maybe I'll get lucky and the Sox will play one of those games.

Same here. I was going back and forth but I bought all 4 for Game 5/6 depending on the winner of Red Sox/Angels.
