Dear Jam Cruise,
Thank you for the prize. Everything worked out. But I think in the future you should (whenever possible) give prizes out on the boat. In retrospect I would have taken $100 bar tab as a better prize over a promise of festival tickets 4+ months after the cruise. This is the first time I have ever (in my life) traveled across the country for a concert where I didnt have the tickets in hand from the moment I left the house.
When we arrived at Wakarusa, there was about 15 minutes of anxiety as we waited to see if the tickets would come thru. At first they said the list with our names on it "hadnt been turned in". Luckily I am a lawyer, and I had a print copy in my hand of every email regarding these tickets. I had also luckily emailed the head of Wakarusa ticketing a week before the festival and had a copy of that email.
After giving the emails to the guy at the counter, he left, and 5 or 10 minutes later returned with our pair of tickets. It was a relief when these were finally in our hands on May 30th. However it would have relieved a lot of anxiety if we had the tickets given to us on the boat. Just a thought.
Anyways, thanks for the prize and just wanted to let everyone know everything worked out. Thanks for everything.
BTW, nobody told us "wakarusa" is the indian word for "knee deep in mud"
