    So pardon my ignorance, but I have been a football fan almost all of my thirty-six years but I have only gone to college games and one charger game at the Q. I have been a casual fan until the last few years. So i honestly just don't know how this **** works.

    I live in Portland, my wife and I are charger fans and we intend to go to Seattle week 3 and cheer on the bolts. Is there away or system to get tickets with other charger fans? I have always been under the impression that visiting team often have their own sections? Am I totally wrong?

    I stoked to see ryan mathews run down the bore-hawks throats I would just love to do with other charger fans.

    There's a "visitor's side" of the field, the same side their team is on, but there really is no designated side for actual fans of the team and you'll be mostly surrounded by Seahawks fans no matter where you sit.

    I'm going to Cincinnati, but I doubt I get a group of Chargers fans from this board now for it since the idiots put it on Dec 26th.

    My wife is already on board, we are definitely going to Seattle. Would love to sit with, or tailgate with some of the people here if such plans develop.

    Yeah we should stay in touch, I've also thought about putting a PNW Charger fan Facebook page together.

    I do not like that the Game is on Dec. 26th but I am still game for going to that wonderful game in Cincinnati. :icon_toast:

    Who cares if just you Leo and myself are the only 2 Bolt Fans we will represent Loudly and Proudly. :abq1: :abq2: :abq1:

    ADDED EDIT: I am trying to plan the Trip to Seattle for this Game.

    Got a cousin who lives in Vancouver, WA. Talking to him about going to that game. I'd probably fly into PDX and we'll drive up there.

    I'll keep my eyes open as this develops. Any suggestions on where to get tickets for this game at QWest?

    For those asking about single game tickets...
    General seating = $54-$98
    Charter = $110
    Club = $210-$394

    Single game tickets start getting sold in late July via Ticketmaster.

    A couple years ago I went to see the Chargers in Seattle on Xmas eve. Charger fans were represented! We sat in a section (45 yard line out of the rain) with loads of Bolt fans. We were hugging strangers in blue and gold after that win!

    I also went to see the Padres when the Mariners opened their new baseball statium. Lots of Padre fans were there.

    You are correct, Hawk fans are dominate, but I have been proud with the response from SD Fans!

    Seahawk fans were surprisingly cool, considering how it ended last time...:lol:



    Crank up the volume and listen to the glory of victory!

    Not sure. I'm gonna try to find some seats in the charter section, we rarely get to go to games so nosebleeds are out.

    Southwest has fares from SD for $124 each way. No way to fly up & back the same day though.

    Last time I bought seats on line and just got lucky to see lots of blue and gold.

    I'm not an expert in the area but this is what I noticed last time I went to a bolt game in Seattle.
    Pre game, I noticed that Safeco (across the street from the Seahawk Stadium) was open and selling beer early; this is an easy place to congregate. There are also at least one or two Micro breweries in walking distance. Not really a tail gate venue, but watering holes, where a bunch of folks can gather, seem to be available.

    this is going to be a big charger party. Im already assuming there will be hundreds of bolts fans in attendence. I will relay info from another board(chargers.com) when info comes available. As far as I know, there isnt really places to tailgate...but some good bars within walking distance where we all can meet up and take over!!!

    I'm down for getting a group of 20+ so we can all sit together for this game.

    Any respected and trusted Mod want to take charge? Let's set a deadline for FULL Payment deposits so we can purchase tickets!!!

    I am a 1 guaranteed. My Job has allowed me off for this great game in Seattle. :icon_banana: :icon_banana: :icon_banana:

    Have we made any plans on the head count to include the Tickets, if we all will be staying at the same Hotel and Yaddy Yaddy Yaddy? :icon_toast:

    Bumping this thread to double-check who is REALLY planning on going to Seattle!
    (Plane flight, hotel, game tickets.) :bolt:

    We should be pooling our resources with bolt bunker. Chime in at: http://boltbunker.com/showthread.php?415-Seattle-trip-final-thread .

    There are a guaranteed 12 people going from the Bunker to the game. BillingsBoltFan is willing to buy groups of tickets together.:icon_toast:

    They have decided to stay at the Ramada Inn Downtown, making the resos. together to save money.:tup:

    Let's get some dialogue on who plans on being there!:icon_banana:
