Announcement of "The Field Club" in the south end zone, $30 for the  privilege of standing behind the end zone to watch the game, includes two beers. Three 30-person suites for parties or functions, in which children are permitted.

I suppose this increases the capacity of Casey Stadium. I'm not sure how many people would want to watch from ground level except when the team's in the red zone on that end of the field. I wouldn't call it "the best view in the house" like the announcement does. They're pitching it to "Young alumni" and "Young professionals" so that leaves me out anyway.

plus if you already have a ticket {i.e. season ticket holder} CANNOT exchange it for "the Field Club." [Not that I would want to; but it might be fun to do once and have a beer or two If it WAS available .]

Like 72 said, I do t fit the profile either. Also I’d prefer to watch a game when I’m at the game. Ground level end zone is not what I would call a prime viewing area. Leave it for the youngsters. 

 

Oh, I’ve been meaning to mention that they must be doing better at GDAC membership and giving as I’ve been bumped to Dutch for the first time.

I am at the purple level; just short of gold. I admit to playing the system a little, by using my "Priority Points Rank:" to insure Sefcu parking. If you don't mind revealing your rank or at least an approximate rank range, as I would like to get a feel if "gold level" is doing any better. Of course this is a PRIVATE matter and if if you prefer not to reveal, I fully understand. But two things that might help get you back to Sefcu are: for Basketball there are more spots available than for Football, so be sure to check again. AND TWO: when the gdac Priority Points Rank: was set up it used a history of only 5 years; Justin Brown made some manual corrections for really old timers. If you feel your rank is/was understated, you may want to contact Justin. Anyhow good luck getting back into Sefcu; and any info you can give how gold is doing would be appreciated.

It says I’m #400. Of course, with the way they are playing today, Benson could personally pick me up at my house and carry me to my seat and I’d still chose to stay home. Is it ok to bring paper bags with eyeholes to the games?

Must have been some money coming in because I've dropped from #143 to #203 and I upped my commitments this year.
