unfortunately, tickets are already sold out. looks like it was annonced wednesday morning and went on sale the same day. i snagged some last night for $30 via Craigslist.

and I signed up my daughter for the development clinic which is free and sounds really cool. still lots of spots left for those if you have a 10-14 year old.
