Even my sister is still convinced that the reason we've gotten tickets in the
past is that my husband teaches at BYU. Really? Like they have time to sort
all those applications to figure out who works for the church? Sometimes we've
gotten them and sometimes not-- like this year :(
Why do people have to behave this way? Do the masses think that the process of
handing out tickets is rigged? It's a lottery plain and simple.Even
if the tickets were sold there would be scalpers and whiners acting this way.I think its more the criminal types (scalpers) making all the noise.
Anyone acting this way or faking tickets should be black listed to never get any
tickets. There should be some way to mark the tickets to match the intended
recipients and transferable with church permission only. Mark them not for sale
and a punishable crime if sold.
"...drew a record 1,515,963 ticket requests."Maybe the
Church could consider requiring a one dollar fee for applying for a ticket and
then putting it in the Humanitarian Aid fund.It might cut back on
requests but would pump a lot of money to where it would do some great good.OR David and the Choir could (in addition to their regularly
scheduled concerts) do a few extra ones, charging a reasonable price and it
could all go to Humanitarian Aid.Either way, more good would result
than just people hearing good music.
Mayfair, That is a great idea!They could still build goodwill and
benefit the less fortunate at the same time. I hope they're
I'd rather spend time with my family and then next year we could watch this
years concert on DVD...makes sense to me!
