    This is an ALL POINTS BULLETIN.

    I am looking for that Chargers fan who has been a season ticket holder since Day One. No gaps in the season ticket holders account are acceptable.

    I am looking for that someone special who has had a continuous track record since 1961. I have met many fans who went to the first game or have gone to "all the games except one" (IronMountain) but I have yet to meet that fan who has an unbroken record as a season ticket holder. No gaps and same seats is what I am looking for.

    That special person I would like to meet and invite as an honored guest to this NFL Season's Opener tailgater against the Bears.

    Who is this mysterious fan? What is their story?

    This is what this thread is all about so if you know that person or hunt him down, I will give you $500.00 BoltCash as a finders' fee.

    Go Chargers !!! :bolt: :helm1: :bolt2: :icon_beerbang:

    We can't give each other bolt cash anymore. BTW, I am that fan. :D

    That is until until Thumper fixes the glitch. I am pretty sure Thumper could take my BoltCash and give it to whomever if the situation arose. That should be easy - or at least I think it is. :icon_eek: Anyway, I will work out something to make it way right and this you can bank.

    Tough challenge...Finding those/that fan is going to be tough. My guess is that there are probably less then 10 that have been to every game, in the same seat since 61'.

    Good Luck...

    Wouldn't really be possible (Balboa stadium), but I know what you mean.

    Balboa stadium season ticket holders got the equivalent Jack Murphy seats so it still applies. :yes:

    I have to meet one of these people and get them to a tailgater to thank them properly, shake their hands and give them the credit they deserve. :icon_toast:

    Hopefully, I will be able to get the media involved (they eat up this stuff) and pull it off.

    I am still resourceful at my age so do not let the gray hairs fool you. I still have stroke - it is just I need to switch off hands more often. :lol:

    Trumpy can you accept a person that has been there since 1960 from the LA Memorial Coliseum days? In this thing you are asking. :icon_shrug:

    Because I think I can help.

    OK, I will accept the Coliseum as well :lol: I did not mean to exclude that one year and I think it is the San Diegan coming out in me that hates LA. :lol:

    If you know that special someone, let me know. I want to contact them directly and extend a special invitation to attend our tailgaters.

    I wish for you all to hear the stories if they are willing. I absolutely dig hearing stories from the old timers and watching the younger fans taking in the history is just too special.

    Warriors who have done the deal from Day One, need to be recognized. :yes:

    So for what it is worth, that is my plan.

    If anyone can assist, talk to me goose. :icon_toast:

    I wasn't even in the womb at that time.
    Come to think of it, I wasn't even planned yet!!! :lol:

    Though at age 12, I did for to a Chargers/Baltimore Colts game at the Memorial Stadium and I was cheering for the Chargers!

    He has been to a few tailgaters already :) and an excellent suggestion :icon_toast:

    I am looking for the next Chargers fan who is out there. :yes: :flag: :bolt:

    They exist but get no pub and it is time to get them a little something something.

    My sister in law does these killer beaded Chargers necklaces and do-dads and whatchamacallits so I plan on laying a few handmade gifts on them as well as an incentive to appear. :helm1: :bolt2:

    It will be a hard sell to get this guy to a tailgater because he unfortunately he likes to just go to park his car and go straight to the stadium to his seat.

    He moved here to San diego because of the chargers. To me that is hard corp fan right there.

    I will see what I can do though. I can not gaurantee anything.

    We'll ask this question to all the listeners of the podcast and see if we get any responses.

    I would be more than happy to speak with them if you can arrange it. They are not obligated to do anything other than show up so no pressure. :icon_toast:

    Same here.

    I was not even close to being a thought until very late 1967 to the very earliest 1968 because I was born in 1968 in September. I disqualify myself by default. :lol:

    But my first Game though was in 1971 at the age of 3.:tup: :yes: :flag:

    Oh man, that is even a better idea. Thanks. :tup:

    I know when I met IronMountain and ViewFromView22, I absolutely dug hearing their stories and I still do.

    If it affected my neanderthal ***, I know it will affect others as well. The stories are priceless.

    Well, it would be nice to see something, like a taped interview or something. If they'd be willing. I don't know anybody like that, but met a couple that fly in from Alaska all the time for years on end. I thought that was pretty hardcore.

    I think Shamrock might qualify. Oh wait, never mind he is just old.

    The biggest prob I see is, many of us were teen agers when the Chargers came to town, and joined the military for whatever reason, and lost some seasons to Uncle Sam.

    I guess there are exceptions, but prolly not too many.
