    well guys, I havent been on here in a while, I need some suggestions and advice. I have made the big move from Montana to California, Victorville that is. I know I know its gonna be hot here in the summer, but I am much closer to the Bolts and plan on going to all the games. The only problem is by the time I found out I was moving for sure, the season tickets are sold out, I have always got my tickets through stub hub and will continue to, but would you guys suggest getting on the waiting list for season tickets even though the seats will be way up high, or would it be better to by them on stub hub even though some games will cost a lot more? Any suggestions would be appreciated, and I look forward to the first tailgate party!!!!!

    Hey dude welcome. :icon_toast: It is freaking hot. Swamp coolers keep the electrical bill down but are for **** when it is humid (not often it is humid here).

    I would get on the waiting list and then hit up Stubhub at the same time. Tickets are going to be a biitch to get this year so heads up.

    If worse comes to worse, let me know and then I can make up signs to solicit cheap tickets and that includes everyone reading this post.

    Just PM me and I will print up some flyers for the tailgaters that we are looking for tickets. No guarantee we score but it has been real effective in the past. So is reading here as well.

    I believe they still have season tickets available. Only singles though, none available with two or more together.

    We are planning a run to Las Vegas the weekend the Chargers play the Chiefs in Arrowhead (Dec 2rd). Check out the stickied thread at the top of this forum for details so heads up......we have about a half dozen to a dozen committed one way or another to going and I am sure it will get much larger. If San Fransisco's roadie we all did was any clue last year, this one could get real huge real fast.

    Nope. Traffic would be bad at that time as well.

    You would have to leave by 3:00 or so.

    Save the link because the dude has tickets he often puts up for fans.

    The problem for the game vs the bears is that I need 3 tickets, both my boys are flying out for the game. There are plenty on stub hub and even some on ebay. Are view 3 ok seats? I have never sat up there, just wondering if you can see ok from there?

    If possible, get the opposite side of the stadium (Chargers side). View 3 is in the sun for the first half of the game and it gets hot plus it is the visitors side.

    I've sat all over the Q and prefer the View section to others. I don't care for end zone seats, but the View section anywhere between the 10 yard lines is great. Last year I was way up high (one row from the top) for the Chargers/Browns game and I could see everything well. You can really see the action develop from up there. Remember, "The eye in the sky doesn't lie." The teams record their game tape from up there.

    Welcome to Cali. I will occasionally have some spare tix to sell, as I have season tix but won't be able to make every game.

    I agree, view seats are pretty good. Its kinda like watching it on t.v., but with 60,000 other rabid fans messing up someone else's house. Hopefully after I buy my books, I can scrounge enough money to go to a game this year.

    I scored megold's tix for the Houston game since he's not flying form NY for that one. Sec T55 row 1 press level.

    Anyone ever sat on press level? Will there be other fans or just a bunch of reporters?

    Press and Club Level are the **** for viewing BUT I do not care for the fans in those areas. They are not as passionate and most drink with a pinkie extended. :lol: Fuc their **** up and represent and show them how it is done. :abq2:
