Event description

Description

These are standby tickets - You will only be able to board after everyone else has, IF we are not at capacity.

We almost never have to turn anyone with a standby ticket away...but, there are no guarantees. IF you are present and you are not able to board due to capacity we will refund your ticket the Monday after the event. However, if you do not show up and there is room we will not be able to refund you your money.

Standby attendees will be granted admission based on the order tickets were purchased. The earlier you buy, the better chance you have of getting on!

Please note, that IF some members of your party are able to board and others are not we will only refund those who we do not have room for. For example if you have a group of four and we only have two spots left and all four of you leave, we will only be able to refund two of the tickets.

BOARDING TIME:

Please arrive at 8:15 pm. Please stand off to the side, as you will have to wait until all GA Passengers have boarded. Assuming there are no-shows we will call the names of standby ticket holders in the order they purchased.
