Just got this in the mail today.
If you use it kindly blot out my personal information on the final page.
I know one dude on the AB site will be crazy excited about this (can’t remember who).
However for me, I’ve had season tickets since ’97, 4 seats in Section 10. I currently pay a $200/seat fee=$800 a year plus the cost of the tickets, $1126 ( I think-I ‘m not taking the time to look up and confirm). In addition I have paid parking as well, $1250.00. All in…$3176.00 OH and we’ve attended the recruiting dinner every year since it’s inception and had a coach/player table=$1500.00
All that in addition to monies I donate to the Science dept etc. (I used to have season baseball tiks but once they compressed the schedule and my boy is playing HS ball I couldn’t justify the expense for games we couldn’t attend)
To stay in the same general area under the renovation proposal….I’ll be paying $500-800 per seat….an increase of $1200 to $2400.00 a year.
My sister opted to move to the new section with my dad, who needed a chair with back. Now currently paying $800/seat x6=4800.00…not sure how much her tiks are annually but they are more than mine…..and they have bumper parking $4800.00
All told our family has 10 tickets and pays $5600/year in seat fees.
So I’m a third generation beaver, so is my sis…. We’re both looking at not renewing this next season
1) Product is bad
2) Game day experience is worse
3) We pay for parking but I can buy a spot….closer to the game for $20-$40 a game at 6 games =$240 max….vs the $1250 I’m paying now. BTW those are athletic dept run lots too.
4) PAIN IN THE ASS to have 7:30 games. Can’t do (or won’t do it much longer) the drive back to PDX 5 of 6 games with all the drunks.
Now it looks like I’ll be paying $12-2400.00 a year for the same product in an improved seat….And I won’t have the seats or seat neighbors I’ve had for 17 years. I like my seats and I’m close to the aisle. NO guarantee I’d get that with the renovation.
The decisions not final….but it looks like the Athletic Dept is going to lose 10 seats from season ticket holders and probably about $4675 from me alone and an estimated $11,000 from my sis and dad for a total of approx. 15K a year.
Anyhow. Thought you’d be interested in what I got in the mail and my personal take.
