The winner of the drawing for the two free Ignite Bend tickets was Alan Brandt; overall there were 16 comments and Alan’s name was drawn from a hat (literally!). Congrats Alan!
Also, if you weren’t able to get a ticket, the Ignite Bend folks forwarded me the details for the stand-by line—you might still be able to attend:
Thank you for your interest in Ignite Bend! As you are aware, we have “sold out” of advance general admission tickets. At this time we have released as many tickets as we can to people on the wait list, and if any others come our way we will re-issue them. But, what if you don’t get a ticket?
Since Ignite Bend is a FREE event, there are always a few no-shows for one reason or another. There will be a stand-by line at the Tower for anyone that wishes to attend but does not have a ticket. The stand-by line is first-come, first-served and it will be monitored by Ignite Bend volunteers. Your position on the wait list is unrelated to the order of the stand-by line. Feel free to join the stand-by line any time after 6:15pm. We ask that you please do not queue before then, out of courtesy to neighboring businesses.
Ticketed patrons will be admitted starting at 6:30pm. We hope to begin admitting stand-by patrons no later than 6:45pm.
If you do not wish to wait in line but want to watch the event LIVE, you can watch the live stream of Ignite Bend 6 on our website (http://www.ignitebend.com). The event will also be recorded and individual talks will be posted to our YouTube channel (http://www.youtube.com/ignitebend).
Finally, we invite everyone to join us at the OFFICIAL (no host) after party at Velvet in Downtown Bend, starting immediately following the show.
Thanks again for your support!
