8 posts in this topic

Online through MLB.com the best way to buy Twins tickets? Trying to get tickets for second and third game of season and the pickins are already slim. Not that I am shocked.

Thanks

Online works well. The cheapest is to go to the Twins Pro Shop and buy them there (fees are less). What has worked fairly well for my familly is to pick up the 6 for 5 packages and use those for the popular games early and late in the season. Then during the year we usually pick up Home Run Porch 1/2 price Tuesday tickets

When I lived in Kansas City, you could get Royals tickets at Hy-Vees, I wish the Twins would do something like that, it was very handy. There was a $1 convenience fee, well worth it.

We used eBay last year and got great seats at a great price.

Also, if you enjoy haggling, I get kind of a charge from getting tickets from those guys right outside the dome. If you are willing to wait until 1 minute before game time and the game isn't sold out you can get some deals.

I ended up getting some seats for game one in the Family Section. Wife and daughter volunteered to go to the mall for game two so I could get much better seat for myself. Now that'll cost me, but it's all good. smile.gif

The haggling thing works very well for Reds games, but they don't sell out often either.

PS- in case a few of you don't like to pay for parking around the dome- go to a bar across the street called Huberts before the game, they have free parking- but just don't park and walk, go in and have a beer or two, it's a great bar!

zamboni...Three of us are going to drive down to K.C. to see a Twins game at Kauffman stadium in Aug. or Sept. and I was wondering if you could recommend a hotel to stay in close to the park?

also...I drove a Zamboni for 22 years at Columbia Arena in Fridley. Are you a Zamboni driver?

Thanks, Ron.

There is no free parking at Huberts.

I agree great bar... Some GREAT memoribilia in there also. May even be able to buy a ticket or 2 around there

Funny little story about Sid Hartman and Huberts:

Years ago, ( the 80's) On more than 1 occasion Sid would walk in thru the kitchen---point at the cook---tell him he wanted a burger, and proceed to sit down at a occupied table to wait for his food!

      Getting these big fish back in the water as soon as possible is important in summer heat.

      Thanks guys! JB-how do you get the Mepps down deep?

      I know its not attached to you. But the issue is with it being attached to the dog and if its running full speed and it gets caught on something. The injuries can occur when its a sudden stop and the collar around the neck is pulled hard from the weight of the dog.   Sounds like to you need to get back to the basics with the check cord and get back to sit, stay and come. You can work her with the check cord in a hallway at home with the doors closed, then move to a larger  grassy area etc. Keep the sessions short and praise, praise and praise some more when she comes back when called.   You never want to give a command you cant enforce and that's where the check cord comes in handy. We have all been there before. But if your not confident with her in the water next to a road you need to go back and revisit those commands and how to enforce them until she is ready. its just not worth risking injury.   You have to make the retrieving fun and if she doesn't bring it back your done for that session, and then she doesn't get to retrieve. Let her see you put the dummy away and then start another session at a later time. Praise, praise and praise when she does it correctly.   Dogs will pick up on your body language frustrations etc.  Just takes lots of reps and keep them short and be positive and she will get there.

      I actually don't have that long leash attatched to me. Its 100' I believe and the only reason I leave it on her is because Round Lake is right by a busy road so if she wants to bolt after a rabbit or something I can quickly grab that leash. Also sometimes she'll grab the dummy and want to swim around with it so I give a few tugs to let her know her job is to bring it to me, not swim in circles. It's just a safety measure because she isn't quite ready for fully off leash training just yet. I almost never actually need to grab it.    Thanks for the advice though, the last thing I'd ever want to do is hurt a dog, especially mine. I never throw the dummy past where it's safe to walk so if she did get it wrapped in cattails or something and got stuck I'd quickly get her.

      Thanks for having me Minnesota. I wasn't able to float the Ottertail river but I did fish the lake every morning. Most fish the first 3 days came on top water whopper plopper. The last day, the water temperature heated up to almost 80 so I changed it up a little bit and fished deep water 10-20 feet and caught fish deep. Here's some of the better fish from this week. The fishing up here is great. Can't wait to make it back.

      Small minnow raps, #2 mepps spinners, small spoons. Don't need anything else.

      What a great day jigging out in the mud. Little or no wind all day and it was pretty warm but fish were active, biting and large. A big change came yesterday on my close by spots that threw me for a loop but the fish a few miles away seem unphased. I will say it again a great day!

      Thanks for the advice Dave  I dont let Finn fetch on check cord any more. I only used it when he was a pup
