plan on seeing this; the ticket price range is from $19 - $30; we don't all have to sit together, but maybe we can meet beforehand somewhere and/or after

    Did anybody notice that Gerlinde does't stop very often for breathing when she speaks? Super lungs... Thanks to Wanda for organizing! Great evening!

    great photographs and presentation - what an amazing woman; kinda wish I woulda lingered to meet her after, but they had an early flight so I ended up meeting up w/Haagen Dazs instead; thanks everyone for coming!

    Too bad can't go. "Buried in the Sky" about the August 2008 K2 tragedy makes good reading, although from the Pakistan side. Most people that summitted are either dead or too sickened by altitude to remember much. It would be great to hear from a summitter in person.

  • Wanda

    so far 11 people have paid - they are holding 11 more seats until tomorrow so if you are interested in going, ya have one more day to pay up; since we have more than 10 going, the discount price is $16; again the guy to call is Tobin and he is at[masked]

    February 7, 2013

  • Markus

    Update: just paid for my seat, Tobin said about a dozen tickets left.

    January 24, 2013

  • Wanda

    just updating - 6 spots are paid; Tobin from the box office said he will hold our remaining spots for 2 more weeks; when you are ready to buy, give him a call at[masked]

    January 24, 2013

  • Wanda

    just call and under the reservation they will tell you what is free

    January 21, 2013

    • Wanda

      got my ticket and am sitting w/you guys in a boxed seat

      January 22, 2013

    • DiDi W.

      Thanks! :)

      January 22, 2013

  • Dane'

    Wanda, should we start purchasing tickets asking them to pull up the tickets you have on hold? Looks like we at least have 10 people to get the discount. Which section are you thinking? Center 3rd tier?

    January 20, 2013

  • Aimee

    hey -i have tix to this series, will be there

    January 17, 2013

  • Wanda

    spoke with the guy again; 2nd tier only had the first 2 box seats close to the stage which he didn't recommend because of the angle; also although it is a couple months out, apparently this is filling up quickly; dude was gracious enough to hold up to 20 spots for me for a week; after I get a final head count we can all pay up; other questions? call[masked]; reservation under Barker

    Would love to join the group, I'm in!

    Wanda, thanks for looking into prices. 3rd tier looks far from the stage. How much would 2nd tier cost or is this not an option for group discounts?

    January 17, 2013

  • Wanda

    just spoke w/group sales - they said they would give us a 15% discount for a group of 10 or more, so we could reserve 3rd tier box for $16 a person which seats 8 per box or 3rd center for $19; am opting for tier

    January 17, 2013

  • Wanda

    all right Val -

    January 16, 2013

  • Val

    Let's buy some tickets together.... this is the route to the K2 North BaseCamp that I would like to take soon...
