    Just to prove my audacious devil-may-care attitude, I'm willing to risk it!!! :shock: :twisted:

      I agree with GH - most other Meets won't be the same after you've attended a big Meet at Hayward.
      GH, I thought you were a native Pacific South-Wester :wink:

          (I'd like to say that's for purely track reasons, but being a native Pacific Northwester, that probably colors my take a little bit)
          Boy - I hope you're right. I'm concerned with this type of hype 8 months out, nothing could hold up.

          But I've never been to Hayward field for a meet, so what do I know....

              Have you been to an OT elsewhere?

                What I wonder is how ticket sales and attendance will be for the Pre Classic this year. With the meet just a week a half before the trials kick off I have a feeling a sellout this year will be tough.

                Perhaps the focus will be to bring in as many top international stars as possible to create matchups and drama that the trials can't in certain events.
                Tom will no doubt be able to give us his insight.

                I was thinking some international relays for countries trying to get relay qualifiers along with a couple of US teams (ala Penn Relays) would be a nice touch this year since there are no relays on trials docket obviously. Men and women's 4x1 and perhaps a 4x4 or 2.

                  Anyone with insight into when the single session tickets will go on sale? I have about 20 in-laws bound and determined that I will be able to get them tickets for the two days.

                    what two days? I have a couple of thousand seats available for the sessions of July 1st and 2nd.

                          My guess is that July 1st and 2nd are the off days . . .

                            ??!! Pre is almost THREE weeks (19 days) before the Trials.

                              Yes. I went in 96 - where clearly MJ was unforgettable and Jack Pierce was heartbreaking (didn't get any good tickets to the actual Olympics so I didn't go.) And in 2004 in Sacramento, where, I would have to say Deena and Allen Webb and the Triple Jump were awesome.

                              But yes, I'm hooked on the trials. I'm just curious to see how this one is going to be sooooo much better (aside from my lucky draw in the ticket department)....

                              But, I'm already psyched...just don't want to get so psyched up that nothing can match the hype... that's all.

                                Never say never, but seein' as how the tafnutster is getting on in years and barring a SEUSA OT, a Chicago OG, or a Stanford WC, this might be the LAST OT/OG/WC I get to see, :shock: so it BETTER be AWESOMEST!!
