  • Just a heads up from NOW until Thursday at Midnight (so probably 9 PST).. Southwest is running a great deal on Fall flights. Would be a good time to book if you're headed to H-town or Indy. Or anywhere really

  • I am open for the price range for the seats...$150-$200 is budgetable. The main thing for me is hanging wit `cha`all.
    Master Chief, I leave for SeaTac Saturday morning. If you need a ride to the airport from Arlington and a return, I am happy to offer if our schedules align. Leaving Saturday before noon, departing Sunday about 5.

  • Game Ticket Update. Our friend from the North, .NET member 'Tommy Mack' and some of his friends in Vancouver have connections through a ticket broker they use. He has contacted them on our behalf and informed me that while we cannot get a group of tickets as large as our group (20+) together, he can obtain tickets for us in multiple groups of four in one or two adjacent sections. Ticket pricing starting at $78. I replied that, based on feedback I have received, people would. Be willing to spend up to $150 range for decent seats/decent value. As more information comes in, I will bring it here for discussion and brainstorming.


    Also here is a link to a Carolina trip his group is putting together, if that interests anybody.

  • I'm officially in. Booked my plane tickets for back to back Houston-Indianapolis games. Let's do this.

    BFS, If I could get in on a group of 4 or so with some others for $78 for a ticket, I'd be down. Houston doesn't strike me as a San Fran sort of place where sitting up high is going to suck enough to negate any price savings. At this point, I'm looking for the cheapest ticket I can get. If any others are in the same boat, speak up so we can go in on a group of tix.

  • Copy that, Jordan.

    I am thinking if we could get 2 price options ($78 & $140-$150) then individuals can determine which seats they would prefer and our guy can get us tickets in blocks of four in each of those two price ranges/sections.

    We will stay on top of it and get it figured out with time. Will be fun!

    AGAIN GUYS-----we are starting to talk game tickets and prices so the sooner you can finalize with number of game attendees the better for planning purposes.

  • Can someone provide me some logistics on game finish and catching a flight. I am looking at Frontier airlines and the flight leaves at 6:50 pm. I see the trip from the stadium to the airport will be 30 to 45 mins. I will have to be at the counter at least 1hr and 15 mins prior to departure. I am planning to bring my son who is little, so can I finish the game and take this flight? My son will also be with me for the game. (long story, negotiating with wife) I hate to leave early from the game. If someone can respond to this, I can book my tickets and confirm accordingly.

    Don't take this as definitive, but I travel likely as frequently as anyone here, and, based on what you have described would not worry about it in the least. Assume the game ends between 3& 3:30. Assume out of the stadium by 4. Assume on your way to airport by 4:30. Assume arrival at airport by 5:30. No sweat.

    The only thing I would think is a variable would be game day traffic between stadium and airport. Ask a local.

    Paging HoustonHawk.

  • I see, I am a little confused on the game time, is it 1:00 pm Eastern time, so it will be 12 pm local time Houston (CT), correct. I was of the impression it starts at 1:00. If its 12:00, I am not worried and book by tickets right away.

  • Oh, I'm aware I'm blaming you guys for my not paying attention. :D

    Looking at ticket prices compared to when fall tuition is due... I might have to take the option of getting a parking ticket and listening to the game on the radio, heh.

    Hell, I'll have my car -- Might have to briefly set up the Trav Flatt Seattle Shuttle Service company.

    Correct. Houston is in the same time zone as Minneapolis (where I live) and games in this time zone begin at either NOON/12pm and 3 or 3:15pm.

    Because it is the early game, kickoff will be at noon.

    As I am in negotiations with a couple sources for game tickets and am researching a couple others, it would be nice to know if I am missing anyone (or any +1s) from the list above.

    Also, if you find your handle on the list above and know damn well you are full of hot air and don't really plan to attend when the talons meet the road, (Aros, RockHawk-im looking at you) (RockHawk, im not looking at you anymore. Aros, still looking at you!) please do us all a favor and withdraw your name now.

    Second to lastly, have ANY of you from Seattle purchased airfare yet? And, lastly, why not?

    Expedia currently quotes me $358 round trip from seattle to houston for that weekend, which seems reasonable to me although I have not paid for an airline ticket in 8 years.

    I can't believe how gleefully anticipatory I feel about this forthcoming season.

    Go Seahawks!



    For airfare I went to Kayak which gave me the option to buy directly from Frontier. They were cheaper at that time than expedia. My total was about $600 total w/ tax etc.

    If you are flying in and out at Bush Intercontinental, it's on the opposite side of town and about an hour away with traffic. The 610 loop is a parking lot after the game so the Sam Houston Tollway (beltway-8 ) is the way to go. Tolls will be about $5.00 from stadium to airport.

    If it were me, I would not set a departure any earlier than 7:00pm from Bush, and 6:00pm from Hobby.

    Where the HELL did this guy come from??

    EXCELLENT!!

    Mandu+1 it is!!

    Working to your advantage is the fact that you have kept a low enough profile and post count here, that you haven't made any enemies yet. Keep up the good work and I look forward to meeting you in Houston.

  • Yo!

    For those of you traveling to Texas for the game make sure you tell your credit card company that you are going. Texas is a state that is so full of fraud that my bank won't allow my card to be used down there unless I notify them of the dates I'll be there.

    I wanna make sure you guys have the funds to buy Leif and I a beer with your cards.

    I thought Leif was buying since he organized it?

    So my plan to tell the bartenders "the big fella with the crazy beard is buying" is a sinking ship?

  • What you do is steal someone's hotel key every so often, then hand it to a fattie waitress and tell them to come up at like 2 AM. It's a must really.

  • UPDATE ON TICKETS.

    The guy who was going to facilitate a group purchase for us is not comfortable with the number of folks/tickets involved and is unlikely to go through with the arrangement we discussed earlier.

    It isn't surprising, really. It's rather understandable. We have gathered a size able group here and without one individual willing to front payment for 20-40 tickets, it would be a real pain in the ass.

    So for us it's back to the drawing board....I've all but given up on the Texans ticket office providing us any assistance. I will call the Seahawks office and see if they can suggest anything.

    I'm assuming in a month or so, if nothing else, we can all just hop on stubhub and grab tickets individually in specifically targeted areas/sections. ((For example: stubHub currently has 59 tickets in endzone section 618 ranging in prices starting at $85 with a block of 14 in one row))

    Keep your eyes open and any suggestions-bring them here. Also, if anybody just wises up and goes off the res and grabs tickets let us know where.

  • Possible very good news forthcoming. I will probably start a new thread for game tickets and request that the mods sticky it as this is going to take some work on my behalf to organize the interest and facilitate the payment for all of this.

    Essentially:

    I spoke with a Texans ticket rep who said for a group our size (20-40) he can get us a block of tickets together in the 600 level between the 40yardlines.

    The price would be $211 per ticket (may include service fees-I have to clarify)

    And includes game ticket and our own reserved table in a hospitality room called the Churrascos Club which has:

    Our single game hospitality includes your ticket to the game and access to the Churrascos Club:
    · Beer, wine, liquor, mimosas, and Coca-Cola products (open bar)
    · A pre-game unlimited buffet of delectable choices catered by Churrascos Restaurant
    · Meet and greet of the Houston Texans Cheerleaders and NFL Alumni
    · Complimentary Game day programs



    How many of you would be interested in this??

    I need to gauge interest in this. It's either going to be this or every man for himself, I think.

    FYI: Churrascos is an awesome Mexican restaurant with multiple locations in the area. Great TexMex food.

  • the tickets look a little steep there, since they are in the rafters, but if you are talking all you can eat tex mex and free beer for two hrs. I can make up for it. Id be down for that!
