Explorers far and wide! Come one, come all, as we travel back in time to an age of castles, knights, chivalry and pretty cool sword fights. Back to a time where Google Glass does not exist and these "Witch Goggles" invoke curiosity and a possible burning at the stake. It promises to be an enjoyable evening for all with good food, good company, and a very entertaining performance.
For this Glass and Relax, we will be heading to Medieval Times near Baltimore, Maryland. Currently I have the date set for 3/1, but we can adjust that prior to purchasing the tickets if a better date suits the group. These events are predominantly for Glass Explorers, but significant others and others are welcome too. While you may demonstrate your Glass to people if you like, this isn't meant to be a "What is Google Glass" meet up. This is meant to be something we can all attend, have fun, and leave with some enjoyable memories with your fellow Explorers.
I've been in talks with the sales rep and we can get the corporate discount rate if we can get a group of 10 or more people together to go. There are some add on a we can consider too, one that I would recommend is the Royalty Package, which is an extra $10 per person, bit includes guaranteed first or second row seating, some commemorative items (pennant, booklet) and one DVD for the group (would be given out at random, I'm not a contender as we already have one). There's also the appetizers for an additional $9.95 per person, where we would have pre-show appetizers separate from everyone else. The appetizer thing may be nice, but I still would recommend the Royalty package over it.
The base rate would be about $44 per person, or $54 per person with the Royalty Package. The only downside to doing the group thing is that the tickets must be purchased at least 2 weeks in advance, and they must be purchased by one person, meaning we would all need to pay the same person in advance, be that me or another of the group, in order to get the group rate. That is the portion that I do not like but I understand it. I would prefer not to have to pool the money before hand and have everyone purchase their own ticket, but we could get better rates grouping.
The other option is we all purchase our own tickets via whatever means we like (sometimes groupon has deals) and just meet at the mall prior to the show. If we arrive as a group, we'll be seated as a group. This option is potentially more expensive, but I'm sure many of you would be more comfortable with that. We would all still need to agree on Royalty package or not though in order to still be seated together.
