Some tips for the M&G:

Use the Center Field gates located at Half & N Streets.  They are the only gates to open at 2:00.

You will see the Budweiser Brew House and Bud Light Loft directly ahead of you as you enter.



Follow the walkway past the Brew House to your left, and you will come upon an escalator and stairs leading to the second level on your right.  Head up to the second level.



Upon landing on the second level, look to your right, and you will see a seating area and bar, along with a Vienna Lager stand at Sections 242/243.



If you arrive after 2:30 when the Loft opens, we should all be in the Loft.  Look to the right of the Vienna Lager stand and follow the walkway to the Loft.



Look for a seating area with some outdoor furnishings...that is our general meeting area.



I will try to mount our banner on the railing at the rear of that area...the portion of the Loft that is furthest from the field.



If you get to the bar...you have gone too far.  Go ahead and grab a beer (if you already didn't get a good one at the Vienna Lager stand) and retrace your steps about 20 feet or so.



You can always look for some of these characters from WNFF M&G II:



Hope that helps...let me know if you have any questions...

I am wondering what jersey to wear after the Marchand display. Milledge? Dunn? A Red sox Papelbon?  Pedro at least was an Expo ...

Everyone - please print the tickets MLB sent to you on my behalf as soon as you can.  We want to make certain the process works for you.  Thanks...

Good thinking to have us try to get the tix. No luck for me. You can’t just print the tix directly from the email as in previous years. Now it wants you to go through the MLB Ballpark app to access the tix (or maybe the Nats My Ticket portal - directions were not intuitive). I have an existing MLB login, but it’s not tied to the same email where I had you send the tix.


Maybe I need to return the tix to you, then have you resend them to the email address linked to my MLB account?


Anyone else running into issues?

Yeah, one other WNFF'er ran into issues.  Send them back to me and I will resend them the old fashioned way...

Everyone:
Please verify the tickets either appear in your account on your mobile device, or print the tickets that the Nationals / MLB sent to you on my behalf as soon as you can. 
They would have come from:  stcomments @nationals.com
We want to make certain that the 2019 process works for you.
You will need an MLB account, and the email you furnished to me needs to be linked to it.
If you are having any issues or questions, let me know ASAP so we can work thru the fix...which is really pretty easy...
Thanks...looking forward to seeing everyone on the 28th!

Workaround: I was unable to return the tix to VaRK for a resend to my previously existing MLB-linked email. Apparently you have to have a MLB account linked to the email address that received the tix to even return the tix. So I just sucked it up and created another MLB account with the receiving email address. At that point I could see the tix in the My Tickets window. I then logged into the MLB Ballpark App using my previously existing MLB login. Once there, I could then link that new MLB account (and the associated tix for the M&G) within the Ballpark App account. Once I did that, I could see the tix in my Ballpark App.

Talk about having to go all around the mulberry bush!   :bang:

What I do to distribute tickets to folks who do not have an MLB account is, instead of "forwarding," I "print" to a pdf and then email the pdf file.  The recipient then can print the pdfs.

Thanks...I have some folks I may need to do that with...I forwarded some tickets that were in my SPH plan that they may or may not be able to access.  If it comes to that, I may need you to walk me thru it.

Others, I can recall the tickets and forward the attachment to the email that the Nationals sent when I bought the RCR tickets.

It's easier to hack the NSA than to use the MLB site to access tickets.       :couch:

It is not an intuitive site, to say the least. I’m a retired software admin so I’m pretty clever at finding workarounds, but that one took some doing.

It was weird, I couldn't see them in my mobile app but could see them in my account when logging in on a computer. I went ahead and printed them out. Everything should be good to go on my end.
