In the Arena, 3/7

6 Mar


For the most part we survived last week’s Monster Jam event.  We’re missing a little bit of concrete from the arena floor and have to replace a wooden door that lost a battle with a runaway motorcycle, but other than that the arena is in good shape.  Our hearing, on the other hand, isn’t quite what it used to be…

This week I wanted to talk about our Save Your Seat program.  Pat Pratt in our box office coordinates this for us and does a fine job.  For a nominal fee, our Save Your Seat patrons receive advance notification of all events taking place in the arena.  Members are given the chance to buy tickets in advance of the public on-sale date and also can enter the arena through a private entrance.  From our standpoint, it’s like our own booster club.  It gives us an advantage with concert promoters when we tell them that we have a built-in clientele whom we can market their show to via direct mail.  If the Save Your Seat program sounds like something you might be interested in, please contact Pat at

Upcoming events in the arena include a three day gymnastics meet running Friday (3/7) through Sunday, the Harlem Globetrotters on March 12 and the MHSAA Grand Slam basketball tournament March 13-15.  We’re also working on a couple of concert events for later in the spring, so stay tuned for more info on those as well.

Until next week,
