Where can you get tickets?

Or is it open to the public or something?

Its free, events are usually held at venues throughout the city where spectators can gather.


#7

It does sound to good to be true


#8

13 hours from me /sigh

Bit too far! What a shame, if only I had some people to go with!

I'm assuming you get an invite Mike, time to show the world what you can do!

Good Luck!

If anyone is thinking about going and hasn't bought a plane ticket yet this weekend is probably the time to do it. Because of the stupid US debt ceiling stalemate the FAA can't assess any taxes on tickets so it should be a good amount cheaper.

So you don't think I'm some crackpot here is an article for reference:


#13

Sooooooo, anyone around NYC going and need gas money? :wink:

I figured my friend Gerard Benderoth would go but he said he isn't going unless he is competing haha


#14

Officially invited! Got 2nd at Giants Live in Poland yesterday


#15

Congrats, good job and good luck!!!

#17
