The early bird campaign came to an end recently and things look very positive. We are on a similar pace to last year, so we hope that we can attract some additional season ticket holders (both new and old) between now and September. Season tickets are the key to our success and we really need to improve the numbers in order to become more successful. A positive sign for us is that we have seen many new season tickets holders, along with returning season ticket holders from years' past. Hopefully we can continue to see success in this area.
