Default Grinder Bash

Grinder bash is this Friday and Saturday. From what I've gathered, a lot of ST holders were NOT notified. Nothing in our online accounts, no email. So, any ST holder that wants to go to the grinder bash, start sending emails or call your reps. (my buddy didn't get his invite either and he has a different rep, so it's not a rep thing).

This is garbage, and just another reason why I won't be renewing next season. I got a new rep this year, old one was Nathalie, and he has not been close to be as helpful as she was. It's nice getting 3 days notice of this, when in the past I believe we got about a month's notice prior to Grinder Bash. Don't know if I'll be able to make it this year which is too bad, it was the one thing that I was actually looking forward to this season.

A buddy of mine told me about it the last game I was at (Sunday vs. Cle) I don't know how he knew and nobody else did. So I went home, checked my account and emails and saw nothing and thought he was pulling my leg. Another friend of mine was at that game too and and he called his rep and that's how we found out it was still on. I just assumed there would be another one later in the year.

We'll be there Friday night. Fortunately I got the e-mail several weeks before, but because I wasn't sure of my availability I didn't reply until the posted 6/21 deadline. The kicker was that I couldn't log into the Sox/Ticketmaster system -- something was haywire that caused me to be kicked off after I logged in. I tried multiple times, changed my password through the system, but could only keep knocking on the virtual door.

I called Reynel, my ticket rep, but got a voicemail message that he was out until Monday (grumble...). I left a message telling my story, and he did call me back Monday morning and sent me tickets. My worry was that Ticketmaster's cosmic ticket-puncher wouldn't let me in since the official deadline had passed.

Happy ending for me but I can relate to everyone's frustration.

No problem here. My rep emailed me and even sent me 2 extra tix for family. Sox have been great to me as a 1st year season ticket holder.

Girl I work with that is NOT a season ticket holder got an email about it. She must have run a group outing or something. The only good thing is I "guilted" them into giving me Friday as punishment for not notifying me, since I can't go Saturday.

I'm disappointed there isn't a Sunday option this year. Oh well. Gotta work both Friday and Saturday and can't go.

Have a 14 game plan, but, no notice about it. Didn't really expect them, but, thought they might offer to encourage a bigger buy for next season.

If any one has extras that they wont be using, I'd be interested.

Full season holder. First I've heard of it. Disappointing.

Total bull**** and if anyone from the organization is reading this thread, the middle finger I'm currently holding up is directed toward you.

I shouldn't have to call my rep asking why I haven't been notified about it.

I'll wait until after the Grinder Bash has passed and contact them then - and hopefully get a nice consolation prize out of them. But I won't hold my breath.

I think what happens is the emails go to junk mail and the offer is deleted after online after the deadline has passed. I caught it this time, but missed the earlier party and anything for the media guide. I also didn't get a hat.

You would think after the first person complained, the reps would have taken it upon themselves to notify everybody. When my buddy called, his rep said "oh yeah we've been having problems with that". Well, FIX them then.
