WELL_WELL-"TICKETS ON SELL AT NOON" was at the H School at 12:15--Was told tickets were SOLD-OUT what gives- 15 mins- There was 8 people there when I arrived- None of us got tickets--Where did all the tickets go- Oh: Maybe the Grammar School teachers at a few select schools got some-the school we are playing got some-So 60% of the rest of the gym was sold out in 15 mins- Why wasn't the public told that the students would get the all the tickets before Noon-and select teachers- What about people who work with no kids in school Who support the team every week. Thanks to the Home School for saving a few blocks of tickets for the Advertised Advanced Sale to the public...
Oh my sold out, this grandma supporter needs 2 tickets. Been traveling to Sparta each time now can't get a couple for a home game!
There should be some more tomorrow night. TSSAA rules state that in sectional ball games, "the visiting team shall have the opportunity to receive 50% of the tickets. Money or unsold tickets must be returned to the home school by 5:00pm the day of the game." If we are only seating approx. 1200 people,then E. Hamilton had an opportunity for 600, there are 22 ball girls, mgrs, etc. who were (rightfully) able to get 8 advance tickets, and the boys team could get 4 each, with 800 students at the high school who could get 2, the math ticks down pretty quickly. However, chances are that E. Ham won't bring 600 people so check at the door tomorrow. My daughter is a player and I am still short one ticket, so I hope that works :)

The visiting team did not sell all their allotment of tickets, so there will be some available at the door tomorrow night. They will go on sell at 5:30 at the ticket booth in front of the gym. GO LIONETTES!
Anyone know what time the doors open?

Robert A Harris gets in FREE along with Arna Smithson, Tim Spry and a few others who sponser the teams in one way or another. Their name is on a list by the door.
I have two tickets I don't need because I am going to be out of town and didn't know it.
Anyone who is interested can email me. I am asking $30.00 each. Email by 3:30 pm today if interested.

There were two pair of tickets on stub hub fo $75.00 ea.
We should have about 150 tickets at the door, and they are only $7.00 each!
I never thought that I would see people scalping tickets in Cannon County for a high school basketball game. Go figure?
I heard Dutton's Market was raffling off two tickets to raise money to buy some more signs saying "NO MIDDLE SCHOOL" for people to put out in their yards.
Rumor has it all the proceeds from one of the Fish Fry's is going toward buying t-shirts that has the Auburntown School on the front and "Hell No We Won't Go" on the back!
But, that is all rumor of course!
Why dont they have this game at a bigger facility so all the supporting fans can enjoy.
Sounds like tickets to this are harder to get than Duke-Carolina tonight in Chapel Hill, NC.
