ADMISSION AND TICKET SALES
Mr. Carr shared the link to purchase tickets via Remind last Friday and again on Saturday. Because the link is unique for our school (other schools also have a unique link) I do not want to share this link publicly. For necessary precautions, admission is limited to 50% capacity and we have been allotted 150 tickets to begin with. As we get closer a general admission pool will be opened and I will happily share that information via Facebook and our website. If you did not get the link, please sign-up for Remind and e-mail Ms. Dothard at email@example.com. She will be able to email you that link.
Admission price: $7.00 ($1 processing fee per ticket goes to GoFan)
ALL TICKET SALES THIS YEAR WILL BE DONE THROUGH GOFAN. WE WILL NOT SELL TICKETS AT THE ADMISSION GATE. EACH SCHOOL WILL RECEIVE A PRIVATE LINK WITH THE ALLOTMENT OF TICKETS FOR YOUR SCHOOL ON THURSDAY, OCTOBER 15TH AND WILL END AT 11:59 PM ON THURSDAY, OCTOBER 22ND. AFTER THAT, ALL REMAINING TICKETS WILL BE MADE AVAILABLE TO THE PUBLIC THROUGH GENERAL TICKET SALES. THE PRIVATE LINK FOR YOUR SCHOOL WILL ONLY BE OPEN FOR ONE WEEK SO MAKE SURE YOUR PARENTS ARE AWARE OF THIS.
Carroll County and GHSA Passes will not be accepted. Please make sure your parents/supporters know. This is a fundraiser for the Norman L. Padget Scholarship fund. There will be a $5 parking fee for the lots located next to the stadium – PLEASE INFORM YOUR PARENTS
