After he left, I spoke with an agent concerning reseating concerns & picking order -having purchased season tickets for 44 yrs. The agent said we would have great opportunity to greatly improve seating location. I quieried as to why - mentioning my conversation with the previous customer. The agent agreed--- a lot of longtime holders really angry about the bidding war the reseating process invokes , the uncertainty of process, the schedule, etc....... I mentioned they still had 24 hrs for orders to come in. She indicated they must be in office by end of following day.... postmarks did not count. She felt people would be surprised at how good their selection options will be.
Sooo.....heres your chance. Once the renewers select their seats, a lot of first timers are going to have the opportunity for great seat locations.
...but at least that makes me feel pretty good that I'll have my own seats for the first time! I've been buying off another Hokie Club member for three years and finally needed an extra ticket, so I had to dive in this year and try to get my own. Looks like I picked a good year to make the jump! Hopefully more Hokies renewed at the last minute, but if not I'm sure we'll still sell out if it goes open to the public...
