We didn’t have a draft party this year so wanted to make up for it. Our man at the Raptors has offered discounted, pre-sale rates towards a Raptors game this coming season. The first 40 people to pay $100 (for a ticket that usually costs $150) will get below-cost ticket to a game we will attend as a group. This is a pre-sale ticket so you’ll get the best location for the price, and the best games. Basically, this is a deal you can’t get by walking up to the ticket-window, online, or through a scalper. The best part is that in addition to the great deal, we’ll scrimmage on the practice court at the ACC on July 22, 2013 at 7pm!.
The court has plenty of room for multiple scrimmages, and we can choose to organize a round-robin tournament there as well (if everybody’s up for it). Whatever the case, it’s guaranteed to be a blast, as you simply don’t get to do this much.
It’s going to be awesome. If you don’t want to scrimmage and just want to hang out at the court, check the facilities, take some pics, that’s OK too.
We’ll also have a section of Real Sports Bar reserved on the day of the game, so you can come earlier and meet-up as well. Looking forward to that.
You can do an Interac Money Transfer of $100 to firstname.lastname@example.org with the code raptors via your bank (make sure to provide your email in the message). Alternately, you can pay via credit card here (costs more, though – $106). The deadline for this is July 11th, so get in before then.
Let’s get together and make a night of this! Hope to see you all there.
Some questions you might have:
What happens if I can’t make the game you guys pick?
No worries, anyone can pick a different game to go to. Everybody doesn’t have to attend the same game (but that would be nice).
$100 is a lot! You sure about this?
This price is guaranteed below-cost, meaning it’s cheaper than what you’d pay if you went up to the ticket-window during the season.
What game are you going to pick?
We’ll try the Knicks, Lakers, Heat…basically, someone good.
How much is Raptors Republic making off this?
Zero. This is all about getting Raptors fans out to a game and having some fun at the ACC.
Wait, you’re saying $100 but you’re charging $106 via credit card?
$2.80 goes to Stripe for processing the payment, and $2.50 goes to ShopLocket for providing the payment services for a total of $5.30. I refuse to deal in cents so I rounded up. I’ll collect the 70 cents and buy someone a bag of popcorn at the game. You can always pay via Interac and pay $100 flat. That’s what I’m doing.
