Sure is quiet in here  :bubbles

Anyone seeing charges yet?

I think I did really well based on what I wanted, and making assumptions based on my charges. You'll probably still see me on the trade boards, though 😜

You will get an e-mail from PB probably next week. The tickets themselves won't get mailed for about 3 weeks or so.

Well, we put in for a possible 220 dollars in total charges and as of last night only show a 60 dollar charge to the card. Is this part of the process, and we can expect further charges as they go through the lottery, or can I assume those are the only tickets we're getting????? If so then we totally didn't get Punch Brothers!!!!!! Which in reality was the only NG I really wanted. Hoping desperately that this is not the case!! Frown

In my experience, that means all you got was two $30 (Palm Theater) tickets, unfortunately. I've had a wide variety of experience with the lotto ... this year I put in for $290 and got a $220 charge, but last year I did about the same and literally pulled nothing. BUT, it's one of the only ways for it to be fair. Keep an eye on those boards that TellurideTom linked to earlier once charges go through and people get notified; there will be people/groups who end up with too many for one show, but none for another, etc. Things usually shake out, but might take some patience and effort. I didn't end up with my 2015 Greensky ticket until the afternoon of the show :-)

That's a lot of nightgrass!!!  EEK!  Just the one for me this year.  That walk gets longer each time I do it.   Wink

And yes, once you see the charges hit, they've processed your submission.  Like Zack said, be vigilant and you'll find your tix.  I got two friends into GSBG at 9:00 the night of the show last year.  Things shake out!

We put in for Weds YMSB, Sat ER, and Sun Punch. Taking Thur and Fri off from NG as those will be our biggest full days at the main stage. Probably may not even hit the main stage on Saturday, except for maybe one show. Hoping for a great Elks Park day on Sat!

Yonder at the CC on Wednesday will be the easiest NG to get if you didn't get that pulled in the lottery.  It's the biggest venue, and they don't make very good trade bait vs. their show at the Sheridan, which do.  So if you want to make that one happen you can count on finding those on the boards pretty quickly.

Sometimes, too, people buy a lot of Nightgrass tickets in April and then when the night comes have raged a little harder than they intended and don't end up going, thus why you end up with people getting rid of tickets at festival. :-)

Skubes is right, Yonder at the CC is the easiest to get. Not a bad show, just have to make sure you don't miss the 2 AM ganjala. Went last year because I had my 18 year old with me, and this was the only Nightgrass where you didn't have to be 21 to get in. This year I see that the Sheridan shows will let people under 21 in if accompanied by a parent. Has that always been the case or is that new?

Beware! Last year, we were told by Bluegrass and it said when ordering that under 21 would be allowed with parent at Sheridan.. But, at door, our sons 18, 20 were not allowed with us there even.

Thanks for the heads up, Debbie. This year, my 25 year old is coming with me, so we won't have that issue. But if the policy for the Sheridan is 21+ only, PB should change the wording on the web site. See you all soon!

Just to clarify, The Palm is +21???  :huhIf so that's going to change my plans as I have tickets to two of the shows and an 18 year old that won't be able to get in.  Frown
