I've received the official flyer for this as a .pdf file. I've sent it to George in hopes that he can set up a link to it. If he or someone else here can do this, it has an order form you can mail or fax to the Sox. You can also phone in the order, as I'll point out below.

Here is (most) of the text of the flyer:

CORE OF THE CORE
SOX FAN BASE OUTING





Sox vs. Royals







Thursday, September 8, 2005



7:05 p.m. U.S. Cellular Field





Hey Totally Biased Sox Fans!







This one's for you: join your fellow “core of the core” Sox fans for a fun-filled Thursday night at U.S. Cellular Field. Meet your fellow die-hard Sox fans in the Patio area for a 2-hr. pregame party and enjoy the company of your Sox-biased friends, share Sox stories, and discuss post-season possibilities. Re-locate to your Lower Reserved seats after the party to continue your discussions on the main concourse. Additionally, if you book a group of 20 or more tickets, plan on the following perks:







•Seats together







•Free Scoreboard Message

•2 Gift Certificates to an '06 White Sox Game





So wear your Sox Pride on your sleeves to the Sep. 8 game and take advantage of a special late-summer event!

You can imagine why I'm hoping George or somebody can link to the PDF this is based on. That's supposed to be the box to fill in your order....Oh, well....

Here is more information:

All of the seats are in Sec. 105. The Sox have started by reserving 500 seats and patio seats. If orders are going well, and it looks like that amount will be exceeded, the Sox will add seats. If you want to bring family or friends (heck, if you want to bring your own group within the group), feel free to do so. There is no limit to the number of tickets a person can reserve.

If you have tickets for the game already and only need patio passes, call Kurt Hasenbalg at (312) 674-5187 or email him at khasenbalg@chisox.com .

I'd hold copying the order form until we find out if George or someone here can set up a link. They already have an order for two tickets, so only 498 seats in Sec. 105 are left.

I thought it would be cool if there was a "dog pound" type thing over there like in cleveland. Obviously not original, but I still think it would be pretty cool. Just a bunch of diehards giving opposing team bullpens "the business" every game.

Hal,

In your original post, I think a digit from Anthony Wade's fax number got cut off. I think it should read 312.674.5140 (judging from the other WS group flyers with his fax # on it).

It won't matter once the actual pdf file is up, but for impatient members like me who had to rush out and fax over our info as soon as possible, it might save a bit of confusion.

Thanks again!

Hope this works for you guys who want to order right away.

To PHG, FWC, or somebody else. I sent George a copy of the .pdf file of the flier. Can it be linked? I eagerly await some guidance on this. That kind of stuff ain' up my alley.

To those of you who want to see and mail/fax the original flier, I'll do something about that in the next 24 hours if somebody from WSI tells me there's no way to set up a link to it. (I'll probably just collect requests and email them...so you may want to check your spam filters if we go that route.)

Remember, the Sox are making 500 seats available. Bring family and friends if you like. I'm bringing a family member myself.

Got a response back from him real fast.
In case anyone else is in the same situation...
We have been processing Core of the Core orders in batches, and the latest batch went to the box office yesterday. I have a copy of your order in front of me - so as soon as the box office processes your request, you should receive your tix in the mail. Hope that helps.
Contact me w/ any other questions.

I wasn't given any numbers from individual sites, just total tickets sold. I was told that most of the tickets sold were to people from WSI.

The deadline is on the 19th. They will take orders after that, but they will be selling tickets in that section to anybody after that date. So no, there won't be a vast sea of blue behind us.

If he didn't make it, I'll be bringing them tomorrow after I stop at my school to do a little unpacking of chemicals and other supplies for next week.
