that's unfortunate, but at least the interest is there on both sides
Big Chill Hockey
This is branched off the thread from yesterday about the Athletic Department changing the seating for the Big Chill game and basically screwing all us hockey season ticket holders. (http://mgoblog.com/mgoboard/meh-news-student-hockey-season-ticket-holders)
I read that some of you had emailed the athletic department about the screw job. I did too and I have not received any response yet. I was curious if anyone else got any messages back if you did send one. If you did one back, what did they say?
Just got this email:
Dear Student Season Ticket Holder:
We want to inform you of a change in student seating for The Big Chill at the Big House on Dec. 11, 2010. We originally indicated that student seating would be general admission within the student area. Due to our experience with general admission seating at graduation in May, we have decided to use reserved seating for this event. This will ensure your seats for this once in a lifetime special event.
• Your football ticket for The Big Chill at the Big House will be a reserved seat in the same location as your football season ticket and will be included on your football season ticket sheet.
• Your hockey ticket for The Big Chill at the Big House will be a reserved seat in section 33 adjacent to the student section. Student hockey groups will be assigned together. Information on hockey group seating and ticket pick-up for this ticket will be emailed in September.
• If you purchased additional tickets beyond those included with your season tickets, they will be reserved seats assigned in the endzone sections adjacent to the student section. Additional tickets will be available at the Ticket Office in November and we will email you when they are ready for pickup. If you have any questions or wish to cancel your order for additional tickets, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org or 866.296.6849. We look forward to seeing you in Michigan Stadium on Sept. 4 for the start of the football season. Thank you for your understanding.
We've been moved to the endzone... but at least we're together right?
EDIT: If you feel strongly about the treatment student ticketholders are receiving for this event, I encourage you and your friends to help flood the above email address with well-thought-out emails of complaint.
I think everyone (especially Yost ticket holders) will be happy:
