EggtoberFEST Ticket Giveaway!!!!

Hello all,

I won tickets to Eggtoberfest from the kind @The_Buffalo and am unable to go. I have tried to reach out to him, to see what he wants me to do. But I am sure he is busy migrating to the FEST. Soooooo, I am going to do my own giveaway! I have two tickets to giveaway. Let me hear why you should be there. Best response wins the tickets. I will choose a winner Thursday evening. Good luck!

    I would graciously take them off your hands and be grateful for the kind gesture, as I am close by, but I don't have any grand story of why you should reward them to me. I would go if I had tickets and am sure I would enjoy the experience but I am no more deserving than anyone else, perhaps less so.
    Personally, I think returning them to the buffalo would be the best bet, or maybe giving them to a deserving military veteran or first responder might be a nice gesture on your part as well. (I am neither, but have great respect for both.)

    Lesson #1 - Don't enter a contest for tickets to an event you can't attend.  =)

    Don't know what else to do! And don't want the tickets to go to waste!
    First off, the tickets are not really going to waste if you don't use them.
    The were a gift from BGE to you because you expressed great interest in going and now can not. You, nor anyone else, is out any money and no one is hurt by you not going.
    My comment was initially based on you starting the whole process over again by wanting people to express to "you" why they deserve to have the tickets instead of just giving them away.
    Before you promise to give something away it would be nice to know if you can even make this happen. (if they are transferable or not)
    Honestly, it might be nice if the people who won tickets and can NOT go would just keep silent and not make a fuss about and making more work for BGE that might make them not offer free tickets in the future. 
    People are more interested in just winning before they think things through.
    Thank you,

    If no one uses them, then I consider them wasted whether or not anyone paid for them. 

    Tickets are in PDF form and transferable. 

    So, I should stay silent and let the tickets go to waste rather than give them to another EggHead? Doesn't make sense to me. How is it making more work for BGE giving 2 tickets away? 

    I was just trying to give two tickets to someone who wanted to go and couldn't. That is it.

    If there is no name associated with the pdf tickets then great, but that was not my understanding.

  • Man, so much shade being thrown at @ChrisSonn23

    Honestly, I saw the post and just thought he was was doing something nice.  Life happens, plans change.  No reason to let 2 perfectly good eggtoberfest tickets go unused.

    Perhaps just post on the original buffalo thread and offer them back up?

    I know, right?!?! Just trying to give the tickets to another forum member. I did post on the original giveaway post and PM the buffalo with no response. No worries, he is busy so I took it upon myself to give them away. No harm in that

    Update: Tickets are gone to a forum member.
