tickets for fridays game


Recommended Posts

planning on going to the game on Friday. We are taking our 20 month old kids(twins) and plan is to just walk around and see how long they last smile we did this last year also.

I have no issues buying standing room only tickets, and will do that as a last resort. But what are my odds that I can scalp 4 tickets the night of the game for any 4 seats and get them for less than face value that would cost me for standing room only seats?

They don't even sell SRO tickets unless it's sold out. That will not happen. You can get a good deal from the scalpers if that's what you want to do. There will be good seats available at the ticket office too.

My advice is check online as to what seats are selling for in the different sections, then you can tell how good a deal the scalpers are giving you. The price on the ticket they show you is not always the actual cost for the seats on any given day.

You shouldn't have a problem getting four in a row no matter whaich way you choose to go.

Scalpers have been lucky to get 50% of face value for most games. If you wait until right before the game starts you will be able to get them for very cheap. If a scalper wants more than 50% of face, move on to the next scalper. The supply is greater than demand which means its a buyers market.

If it were me with two young kids I'd wait to get downtown so that you are parking right about game time. Most people will be either in the stadium by then or getting close so the streets won't be as crowded for your walk in. Scalpers will also be ready to really make a deal with you. Since you likely won't make it a full game with kids that young I'd just try starting a little later and getting a better price. Might be a half a degree cooler by then too. smile

Yes, wait till the last minute if you want the cheapest seats. It's that or they do not sell those tickets and throw them away. It's how we get our tickets for every gasme we do.

well this was an epic fail.

who would have thought that a Friday night game between the 2 worst teams in the american league would draw a large crowd.

I tried playing the scalping game but they drive a hard bargain and are pretty proud of their tickets. It was tough to find 4 tickets so I tried to do 2 different pairs. Even waited until the first inning was over and still couldn't get them to go down in price. I didnt find anyone that would take less than face value. So I went to the ticket office and bought 4 home run porch tickets.

Lots of folks buying and not a lot of scalpers made it tough to even find tickets.

And lastly about the game. Its just sad to watch this team, no life, no energy not a whole lot of anything. Nothing to root for, nothing to cheer for. The atmosphere was still there due to a decent crowd but I am really dissapointed with this organization right now. We usually go to 5-6 games a year and this will be our only one.

Pretty sad when the only highlight of the game was watching a fan run on the field and dodge a couple security guys only to get horse collared by a female one.

My kids also got their pic taken with TC bear so atleast we got something out of it.

      Welcome to the forum and thanks for the ice report. I'm sure more reports on other lake will start coming in as more folks brave the ice.

      On the south end... It is ice fishing time!  Some resorts (not all) have pulled out fish houses and it is game on.  Some ice trails are marked and open.  Check weight limits on each ice road as conditions can vary. Resorts who have fish houses on the ice will typically transport you out to their houses using light ice rigs for convenience and safety.   As we often say, ice conditions vary greatly on Lake of the Woods.  Some resorts have trails marked across Four Mile Bay out to fishing areas in front of Pine Island on the big lake.  Some resorts are not quite open as the ice where they go out still needs some time to thicken up.   Watch your favorite resort / outfitter social media pages for up to date info.   Work through resorts and outfitters on the ice, stay on the marked trails for safety, please don't exceed weight limits and drive slowly on the ice. Anticipation is high.  The early ice bite is normally very good!   Please remember to Keep It Clean, pick up everything around you and secure your garbage. On the Rainy River...   The Rainy River is frozen up.  Some locals who know the river have been checking ice and ice fishing with some walleyes and saugers in the mix.  As ice thickens, more areas will become accessible. Ice conditions vary and on the river there is current, so much like the lake, we encourage visitors to work through a resort or outfitter for safety.   Up at the NW Angle... Resorts have been monitoring ice conditions and starting to stake trails.  They are not ice fishing yet, but the ice is looking good and some guides scouting for fish give the thumbs up.  Stay in touch with your favorite NW Angle resort for further info.   Driving through Canada to reach the Angle no longer requires COVID vaccinations or the use of the ArriveCan App (which is optional).   For those looking to access the Angle while avoiding customs, there are few options.   1.  When ice conditions allow, the snowmobile trail will be groomed and staked from the south shore up to the Angle. 2.  The Lake of the Woods Passenger service provides round trip bombardier service across the lake.   3.  Lake Country Air provides air service to both the south end and NW Angle.

      Any update on ice fishing? Was out on Green yesterday and there was about 5" of ice from the launch. Didnt push it too far. Really slow fishing.    Anyone fished Ann lake in the past year? Update? 
    • Coleman
      You're not fishing too far from home I see.  I was going to pop a couple holes on Saturday to check the status, I'm on the other side of the point.  Did you mark any fish on those bumps?

    • leech~~
      Welcome to the forum.  Those are some pretty specific questions that are best answered by the resorts on the lakes that rent houses. Let us know if you find any good deals! 👍

      I have a story about Elk Lake.  Last spring after ice out, I was crappie fishing out there in one of those shallow back water areas that hold dozens of puny crappies.  I caught over 100 in a couple hours.  I went back a week later, and one of the land owners came down to his dock and told me that a couple days earlier, a flock of pelicans was in there gulping up crappies as fast as they could.  Literally.  He said they would herd them into a corner and then other ones would swoop in with their gaping mouths/beaks and suck em down like a vacuum.  They did this for 2 days straight until there didn't appear to be any crappies left in there.   He said he considered putting a halt to it because they are gluttons and he could tell it was going to make a sizable dent in the crappie population, but he let it go because it was just "part of nature."  Needless to say, when I was back there fishing the second time, I didn't catch a single crappie and I had caught over 100 a week earlier.
