Nerbs headed to Seattle

hey, gang. This is my attempt to round up a group of us for the Giants-Seattle series on June 15,16,17 (Fri, Sat, Sun). The goal here is to see if there's enough interest in order to arrange for a group of tickets. Fri and Sat are 7:10p starts; Sunday is 1:10p (Sat & Sun subject to change).

I called their group sales dept, and they said that single game tickets go on sale March 10th, and we should get it together before then, if possible (popular series--they know about Timmy!). They've only sold 9K season tickets, so availability is good. Unfortunately, they can't take individual payments for groups less than 40, so we'll have to do something like the brick (ie, Paypal to one person, who then makes the payment).

Pricing is not set yet, and they are instituting the ticket scalping system like the Giants have (ahem, dynamic pricing), so they couldn't quote me ticket prices yet, but the bleachers were $15 last year, and they have seat backs (critical for a geezer like me). If our group was, say, 15, they could let us make a group purchase and avoid Ticketmaster fees, so that's our pricing advantage.

I've been driving up there twice a year for the past four years, so if I do drive, I could take three people comfortably (I live in Walnut Creek). Also, Lies said everyone can crash at his place, stacked like cordwood. I stay with my sister; maybe she'd accommodate some more (she doesn't live in a bus anymore).

So, who's in, and who's a 'strong' maybe, and for which dates?

Update 01/28/2012 - I can get a group of 10-15 of us onto the field for BP before one of the night games.

Update 01/31/2012 - I'll check back here near the end of Feb and see who's still in. Figure $15 a ticket, unless there's enough noise to get better seats. I'll buy all the tickets anyone wants (via Paypal), but we should plan on Saturday as the main event. Is $2 fair for covering the Paypal fee + mailing the tix to each person?

Update 03/01/2012 - It's time to commit. My Mariners contact is advising for the $35 main level seats, instead of the $18 bleachers. I should have commitments from everyone by this coming Monday--which days & number of tickets.
