It's probably safe to say that 75% of camps have a significant number of people without a ticket. Then there's which people within the camp that are without a ticket: be it a core expertise, core equipment, art, art work, etc.

I trust BMorg has a much larger sample size from their phone survey.

And I'm simply saying, "It's safe to say that 75% of camps had a significant number of people without a ticket this time a year ago."

You are assuming all tickets are sold and unavailable when in fact the event is 7 months away and a large number of people were forced to buy tickets at a time when many will change their minds for many reasons. The STEP program has not even launched and you are assuming it does not exist. Give it a chance! Patience will prevail and this is only the beginning of the process. Nothing is a done deal until we have our tickets in hand this summer.

I agree. Now that the dust is settling I am realizing that just because you don't have tickets does not mean you won't be making it out there. People bought tickets and most likely won them thinking, "YEAH, I'm going". But so much can happen between now and August and I think we will find many people coming to the realization that they can no longer go. We just need to encourage all those that do decide not to go to use STEP and prevent third party scalpers from getting their hands on the tickets.
