Thanks for the suggestions. I think the groundswell for the 5 p.m. Sunday games is growing, though other factors enter into the decision making - the other team's travel needs, things like that.
We did have great success with the two Wednesday day games for summer camp kids, so we can get some day games in that way, we may expand on that. The first one drew 1900 people, that's a hard number to ignore for a Wednesday.
As far as souvenirs, I'll take any suggestions on what people might like. One of the challenges we had this year was that we were sitting on SO MUCH inventory from previous years that we had to get rid of that before we start it over for next year - hence some of the clearance sales that you saw during the year.
I saw Rockford's Mr. Trash, and I like that too - other people do it too, it's a neat thing. Is Bill interested in doing it? :-)
For season ticket holders, we're already working on a few things. Deb, you already know we've reduced full season ticket prices for next year, all holders will get a letter about it this coming week. One thing that someone suggested that we will put in place next year is a giveaway guarantee - if you're a full or half season ticket holder, we'll put aside your giveaway so you will be sure to get it, even if you don't come to the game that day. There are other things we'd like to see that I have to do some research on before we can announce, but those two things are already in place for next season.
As far as trips to other cities, let's work on that, it's a good idea, it just takes time to develop.
Those season ticket holders who are not so happy about some things that happened or didn't happen this year, all we can ask is that you stick with us for 2003, give us a full off-season and let us show you what we can do.
One other thing I would ask is that if someone has a complaint, please.. call me at the office. 708-489-2255. An anonymous message board post is ok, it lets me know what you think, but I'd much rather solve these problems face to face. Also, if someone has a compliment, please use the same number. Those are always appreicated.
