Sports venues to be allowed to open fully on June 11th.

Seems aggressive...

Yeah it does.  I guess they figure to be out of contention so not worried about other crowds.

Looks like they'll be able to go up to 50% on May 21.
been wondering why the 2d half of May hasn't gone on sale yet.

Actually the Nats announced they got a waiver to go to 36% capacity effective May 14. They plan to go to full capacity on June 11.

As of 6/10, Nats are going back to full capacity.  Looks like season plans revert to the remainder of your regular package. 

This means I'm going to need to do a quick draft. It'll get complex quick.

Good luck!  I did mine a few weeks ago.  The hardest part was figuring out how much people had already spent from their "ticket bank" money and how many picks they should have left for the remaining games in the season.  Running a ticket group should be a paid position!

Looks like we'll be in DC visiting some family for the homestead with Cincinnati and Milwaukee. Not sure yet if we'll be able to make it to a game, but I'm hoping this will be the year I finally get to see a game at Nats Park.
rolled into town this evening. Still deciding what game we’ll make it to.

Does anyone know if we'll be able to use RCR points to get tickets this year?  It doesn't seem to be working in my portal, but now that park is at full capacity starting 6/10, it seems like we should be able to use points for tickets starting then.

Excellent question.  I was wondering the same thing.  I'm also hoping they resume giving out RCR codes during the games so we can rack up more points.  The RCR program is a nice perk for SPHs, so I really hope they bring it back after going to full capacity.

For any season ticket holders out there, do your RCR point totals look right?  I have 4 seats for a half season plan in the IF Reserve, which used to get me 8000 points.  This year, I started out with only 800, which has come up a little with additional points being earned for a few games attended.  I asked the team, and they said my number is correct, but they haven't really been helpful in explaining the math (i.e., confirming that they cut the automatic points to 10% of what it used to be).  Are folks seeing the points they expected to see?

Excellent question, and I think this needs to be talked about more.  I have a similar plan to yours (with respect to RCR points).  I have a full-season plan with 2 seats compared to your half-season plan with 4 seats, so we both started the year with the same number of RCR points (800).  In prior years I started the season with 8000 points.  I asked my agent about this at the beginning of the season and she chalked it up to Covid and the fact that they couldn't do as many game-day giveaways and promotions.  But now that the stadium is returning to full capacity, I think the RCR program needs to kick back into gear.  And I'm annoyed that we only have 1/10th of the points we used to have.  Being able to use points in prior seasons (and get more thanks to Lyle's RCR codes) was a HUGE perk.  I miss that - a lot.

My points are wrong too.

Not a fan of new exchange feature - before you could exchange two uppers for one lower and now it ticket for ticket …. Seems as backward as the teams progress since 2019.

It's pretty apparent that the 50% Bonus Credit program is the RCR program for 2021.  I'll take bets on whether RCR comes back at the previous value levels in 2022.

I’ll be honest, I kinda liked the flexibility of my ticket plan during the restricted capacity. I wish they offered something like that where I could select 4 games at this level, or 2 games at this level or 1 game behind the dugout, however that would work.

Any updates on RCR points?  If they were gonna screw us, you'd think they'd have some official announcement like they generally do.

Maybe the fact that suites are going for 4,000 points as opposed to what used to be 15,000 points is considered constructive notice.

Wouldn't surprise me if they scaled back on RCR points...the Lerners buddy Leonsis eliminated his program several years ago (lame as it was) and made the Caps Casino Night a corporate only event so that they could generate even more money...but at least they let us know about it thru official channels...

It looks like we got a tenth of our points - 1600.  about 5 a ticket.

somehow, I received a few more points in my account.  I don't know if I'm picking up points when folks from my group actually attend games now?  I personally have only attended one game, one ticket, not in my regular seats.  I would think it would go into my partners account when they attend.  I have one non-partner who has attended pretty frequently.  I should divvy my points.  I also need to do my draft :couch:
