Today I recieved a letter in the mail with 2 flyers (tickets) for 2006 Grinder Bash for All-Star clients! Only thing I remember buying was a group of 20 tickets for a game. I guess that was enough for me to get these tickets :) According to the flyer its all you can eat and drink, access to scouts seats patio, fan deck, vistors dugout and the field! Has anyone been to this before or is this the first year? Also has anyone else recieved these in the mail? I assume its for season ticket holders and grop purchases and is set up for a few different days. Thanks

My day is for July 28th 5-8

I got mine today for July 28th. I will be in Baltimore that day cheering on the White Sox.:whiner:

Maybe someone can trade with me if there is another day?

It's for season ticket holders and group leaders. I emailed my rep to see if something can be done.

I went to one of these about 6 years ago when we started getting season tickets. They're a blast and definitely worth the time. They had tours of the press boxes you could sign up for and even tours of the Sox Clubhouse iirc.

Lots of food and beer
You can bring your mitt and play catch in the outfield
Sox stuff for sale and very cheap
Couple of ex-Sox players hangin' out

I received the Hardcore of the Core tickets today. Hope to get these tickets tomorrow!!!

Too bad you won't be able to make it though you'll still be having a great time. The game is a night game so we can watch the game at the park and get free beer (well what Miller calls beer) and food!!!

July 28th 5-8... I'm guessing I got it for purchasing tickets for the outing with WSI fans last month. Sounds like a fun time though.

This is Uncle Jerry's way of making sure ST holders don't see the ballpark he rejected.

Wait, are you saying that youre not a season ticket holder and haven't organized a patio party, and the only reason you can think of receiving these is by attending Core of the Core? If so, I'm pretty upset because I had my CotC tickets sent to my apartment in Champaign, but I am home for the summer. It would be nice to somehow get tickets.

Yeah, I don't know any other way I would have gotten the tickets? I am not a season ticket holder and I have never set up any group events.

I've got the Ozzie Plan this year AND we bought 4 for COTC II, so I can expect a total of 6 for this event, right?

But seriously, I got my 2 for 7/28 yesterday, too.

What are the details on this?

Free parking? Just a lil party of Sox fans who were ST holders, party reps and party attendees?

Yes, but in this thread there's already 3-4 people without season tickets, nor ordered big group outings who received them. Hence my confusion...

It seems to be similar to the family field event just a couple of weeks ago, except free food and drinks. Well, and free tickets as well. I couldn't make it to the family field day due to other obligations, namely a very pregnant wife, so as soon as I read this thread I got jealous. :D:

I got back from Pittsburgh this afternoon to find an envelope from the Sox, and inside were two passes for this event- mine are for July 29 from 3-6p. I'm confused as to why I got these because I'm not a season ticket holder & never have been, and haven't done any group outings or anything like that. The only thing I can think of is I've attended SoxFest for 13 of the 14 years and maybe that's why I got these.... :?: Hopefully when I call to RSVP and don't have an account number to give them, they won't recind the tickets! Regardless of why I got these passes, I'm totally going to this! :bandance:

Yeah I dont know my account number either but the tix say "ticket needed for addmission" so my guess is the rsvp is just to get an idea of how many people are coming so they can plan acordingly.

4 for 7/29 10am - 1pm and 2 for 7/29 3-6pm.
I am a weekend season ticket holder and had 2 group outings this year.
So I may have some extra's once I figure out who from the family wants to go.

Yes, got mine for the 29th. It sounds like we are getting a little tour of the ball park, or atleast able to go everywhere, does that sound about right ?

If anyone is not going can you please IM, I'm in a little bind with only two tickets, I have to choose my brother or my Dad, or give up my spot. I'll pay you, or give you a one of kind dvd I made from the home opening day, and the ring cermony.

Me too also. I am a former season ticket holder, full and 27 game, but those were both years ago. I shared a full season package for a long time, but the name on it wasn't mine. I did attend COTC I & II and have signed up for WSI Fest.

I got invited to something like this in 1997. It was a blast. I think it's great that they are not taking the fan base for granted. I will be there!

Wow! I got 2 more today, these are for July 27th, 5 to 8pm.
I'm also a Sox Pride member, and I went to COTC II. Can I go to both days, or will they really check the rsvp's?

UPDATE: I'm giving my 2 for the 27th to Brian26

I got two in the mail today, for July 27th (thursday). I organized a group & also am a Sox Pride member, not sure which qualified me for this event but who cares? It sounds awesome!

I don't know if this is best reserved for the ticket exchange forum, but I have pretty much the biggest event of the year for my work the 27th & 28th, and considering I'm a major part of the crew for the event the only way I could get out of it is if I was missing all my limbs and sent them pictures as proof.

Anyone willing to help me keep my limbs and trade my 2 thursday passes for a Saturday pass? I'll pay all postage or whatever it takes...I wanna go to this!!!

While I can't affor 10 beers, I can afford to take them off your hands if you are going to give them away. If they are to the friday, sat, or sun date, I am down.

Wait, on second thought, wasn't beer free at this thing like the patio party? If thats the case, i'll buy you 20 beer! You just have to go pick them up from the guy cause I'm not 21.

Edit: While you're there, grab me one too.

If you need extras and are stuck, check eBay (http://search.ebay.com/search/search.dll?satitle=%22grinder+bash%22). Looks like 2006 Grinder Bash passes have been going for about $16-19/pass shipped (http://search-completed.ebay.com/search/search.dll?satitle=%22grinder+bash%22&sacat=-1), and ticket broker sites were getting about $20/pass.
