Does anyone know what the all-time record for FB season tickets?

Just opened JB's note and answered my own question. 7500 (although I suspect this is a "lie by ommission" as surely JMU did not sell exactly 7500).

RE: Bourne Dialogue - Season Tickets Trending Up
I was told by someone in the ticket sales office P lot is full/sold out. I'm in D lot and assume more folks are in there this year . Also, section 109 only has a few single seats available. The ticket lady warned me they "stand" the whole game in that section anyway and sneak in bourbon. Well, I made up the bourbon part. Many other 200 level sections are running out of seats together/aisle/closer to field seats

RE: Bourne Dialogue - Season Tickets Trending Up
The warning is great! It ensures that no one buying tickets from JMU can claim they didn't know 109 is a standing section. I watched first-hand a group of idiots complain about standing in Section 109. Somehow, despite the most expensive event management costs ever, the contractor ushers didn't know what to do. After my friends got about 5-10 minutes of verbal & physical abuse, someone came to remove & reseat the idiots.

This is one of the things JMU does right & it all starts with the "warning" to people buying tickets. It's a good thing.

I'm glad they've picked up on it and are just giving a 109 purchaser a heads up so there's no surprises. They've probably had complaints and decided it's easier to push them elsewhere where they'll be happy sitting.

CAN'T WAIT TO STAND IN 109! So annoying when people complain about standing at a football game!

RE: Bourne Dialogue - Season Tickets Trending Up
Hahah..yes...

My point is that if they are warning about a standing section, it implies that there are "sitting-only" sections... which do not and should not ever exist

This is true. I would invite BSKB24 into this convo though. I know he has some opinions about people who stand too much! :)

Great to see Season Ticket sales going so well this year. I can definitely say that Tom's statement about P Lot is true. Our group of 3 spots had to move and 2 in my group who had P Lot donations moved to D Lot for this year.

Exciting times! Is it September yet?

That old man ate Wheaties that morning. Don't underestimate that old man strength.



A buddy of my told me when he asked for 109 tickets this season, he was 'warned' that 109 is typically a rowdy section where fans stand and yell the whole time. My buddy replied that he was fine with that and wanted to try to get seats near Deez Nuts, and the ticket office replied, "Ohh so you know about it then"
