The BMorg *could* buy tickets from scalpers in order to take back ownership, then "work with people" to get tickets in hands of attendees determined to have a valid
interest in the event. (via STEP)
*Investigate methods of budget reduction from the event to make up lost scalper expenses (There must be some)
This might help alleviate the ticket dilemma without further isolating long-term attendees.
It's only money...
