While it is purely wild speculation I am going to guess that there will be some kind of reward/enticement to those people that use their tickets a certain % of the time.  Perhaps there will be tiers of rewards based on your attendance %.

My rep confirmed this but I don't have exact details.

He also said the tickets for unused games will not be accepted for exchange. However, tickets for future games will still be accepted for exchange.

I had a feeling that was coming.  It's not a shock, but I am disappointed -- it saved a lot of stress (having two young kids) to just be able to bag it at the last minute and not worry about the seats being wasted.

I wonder how long before the game begins you'll have to exchange the future tickets?

I'm going to guess at least three days. I think that's what they did this year and it allows them to resell your tickets.

 The site says "Multi-Year Plan Holders: Benefits and 2013 price lock continues through the duration of your commitment. Bonus eCash offers will launch in early 2014 for all Season Plan Holders currently in a 2 or 3 year commitment."

Any speculation what offers they might make for folks already locked into a multi-year deal?  Maybe Bonus eCash for extended your season ticket commitment further into the future?  But why wait until next year?

Gotdamn I am pumped.  Going to Quantico Monday for meeting about transferring with work.  Provided that goes well, I will be looking at a quarter- or half-season in Bob's section.  :w:

So, when do we expect the schedule to come out?  It's usually around this time or in September, isn't it?

Wow LF/RF Mezz section really got screwed, with a full $5 game increase for my seats in 205 from $27 to $32 for a half plan. Highest percentage increase in the park except LF/RF corner, which inexplicably is up by 33%.

We've had tickets since 2005, but that might be enough to pull the plug...

Are the corner seats still buy one get one free?

With spring break in April next year I'll be missing spring training for the first time in over five years. I'm hoping we play at Atlanta, Pittsburgh, or Cincinnati that week.

The Season Plan Holder "Lounge" is basically a room with an information desk.  That's it.

It reminds me of a desk at a rental car place.  But that being said, they are helpful and if you're a season ticket holder they'll give you a 2013 Nats yearbook.

That's exactly what it looked like the one time I went there (to pick up 2008 STH gift), like some exhibitor's table  - but then again I don't recall it being referred to as a 'lounge' (in fact it was just outside one of the sets of suites).

Well, they call that containment cell in the Moultrie building a "jurors' lounge", so by that yardstick it is rather loungey.

Not sure you're referring to the same place. This year it is an office, basically, behind section 132 on the first level concourse.

Looks like just about all my partners are coming back.

I have two full plans: 2 tickets in 213 and 4 tix in 113. First split among 10 partners and the second is split among 8 partners.

Now I need to collect by Sept. 30 so we can get the 5% in e-cash!
