I thought it might be kind of fun to find out who has put in an order for tickets for the Core of the Core patio party.

I'll be there (Sec 105, Row 9, Seats 21-22) with my son Jeff who has in turn invited several co-workers of his from Joliet Junior College who are lurkers here at WSI. Who else has put in their order and/or received their tickets?

I'll be thier with the two guys I have season tickets with my Brother and one of his friends. Just waiting on the Credit Card to close for this month to buy the tickets. Probably Next Monday I'll send the orderform in for 5!

I've got the forms printed out I just have to get them filled out and sent in. I will be there with Mrs. IWC and possibly my bro-in-law.

My friend is getting married on Sep. 10 and we are supposed to have our final fitting for our tuxes that night. I'm going to have to tell them that I need to come in early for my fitting!

Also that is supposed to be the night of his bachelor party (are you really supposed to have one for your second marriage?) so I printed out an extra form and told him to get all the guys together and have it at the Cell.

It will probably end up being cheaper than whatever they are planning because it's all you can eat and drink!!! :wink:

I faxed in an order for myself and my brother in law before the official order form was posted, but haven't heard from the Sox or had my credit card charged. Looks like it's time to follow up and give them a call.

I'd love to go, but I don't know if I'll be able to make it back from Madison for a weekday game. I'm probably going to order 2 tickets; either my dad and I will be going, or my parents will go in my stead. :(:

I'll be there with a gal I work with who is a KC fan (not really, but she was born and raised in KC). Haven't received the tix yet, so I dont know where in 105 we'll be.

I have heard from a friend who went to a pre-game patio party that, even if advertised to start at 5, the gates do not open until 5:30, so you still have to wait. Is this true??? Will we be able to get into the park at 5 for the patio party??

They're holding 500 seats to start with. If it approaches 500, they will hold more.

It starts when the gates open: 5:30.

Will anyone in the organization make guest appearances at the event?

Also, will we get to all hold up those cards that make up the Sox logo like I've seen many other groups do?

I've also seen something about vouchers for 2 Sox games in 2006. Does this only apply to the event organizer, or does it apply to everyone who's purchased tickets and a patio pass for this event?

1) I don't know of any planned guest appearances. Those are usually reserved for diamond suite parties.

2) I think those cards are home made.

3) Since there are actually three invited groups that I know of (us, SoxTalk, and Southsiders.net) I don't know if there will be one pair of vouchers or three). I'm pretty certain there won't be one per purchaser.

I gotta ask my brother and my buddy if they want to go to the party, but either way we'll already be at the game, Sect. 159, Row 8. I'll have my Ordonez All-Star jersey on...

I mailed my check and order form on Tuesday morning. ChiSoxGirl will be going to the party alone, so I look forward to meeting a lot of cool people to talk to & hang out with! Still trying to get my friend & his wife on board though, but we'll see how much success I have! As soon as I know where I'm sitting, I'll let you guys know! :bandance:

I'll definitely be there if it includes a chance to meet the Brooks Boyer. :cool:

Hey Brooks, if you're reading this, and you probably are, what are the chances of getting the Raiders-Patriots game shown on the jumbotron for the night? I mean scheduling this for NFL Opening Night. Come on. :D: Joking....kind of...

I can't guarantee Brooks or the Raiers-Pats game, but I can guarantee that WSI's own Hal Vickery will be there to autograph his latest WSI column for anyone who brings their laptop with them. He will be usigning in permanent marker just in case it rains.

I posted this in the official thread too, but I don't think anyone looks up there anymore.

Anyway, I faxed in my order on Monday and my credit card hasn't even been charged yet. Has this taken a long time for anyone else? I'm worried they never got the fax.

Alos, let me know if someone has a contact number for this. Ticketmaster is all automated.

I would make the trip from school in Terre Haute (much shorter than the trip from Minneapolis for Cubs-Sox #5 this year), but alas, I'll have football practice.

If it was on Monday, Saturday, Sunday, I could have gone...:whiner:

Hey man, I posted earlier about the same thing. Got a response back already in case you're interested...

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.

Thanks,
Kurt

I'm sure everyone is looking forward to you being there. I am definitely
not going now. :rolleyes:



I have not decided if I will be able to make it but I am going to buy tickets anyway. If it turns out I can not go I will sell them to some jackass Cub fan outside Wrigley, or maybe give them away to a Sox fan.

Mrs. Heffalump and I have tix in Sec. 159, Row 2. Gotta convince her to go to the Patio Party portion though(she likes to tailgate instead).

I'm also trying to convince my brothers to go as well.

From what I remember from the Patio Party I was at in Sept., 2003, it's hot dogs, hamburgers/cheeseburgers, chicken sandwiches, BBQ wings, coleslaw, macaroni salad, potato salad, and Jays potato chips. No pasta dishes, unless you want to consider the macaroni salad one.... :tongue:

My bad! :redface: Like I said, it's been nearly two years since I was at a Patio Party. I think maybe I got the menu from that mixed up with the menu at the Fan Deck Party I was at a couple weeks ago! :rolleyes:
