last year, i told myself i'd just buy a ticket at the door because eventbrite charges an extra fee to buy online, but i wonder if this is special earlybird pricing.
for comparison, here's the pricing from last year:

i was thinking it could be fun for us THPers to meet up! who's going and on which day (sat or sun)?
 
i'll bump this a few more times as the date draws near. hope to see some of you there  :dance:

Looks like they have a lot going on and would be a lot of fun.  A bit much of a commute for me, unfortunately.  The "LIVE Music Wrestling" under general admission piqued my interest, but then I saw the typo corrected as "LIVE Music, Wrestling." 
 
Can't tell you how long I've been waiting to see someone wrestle a LIVE Music...
 
I'm going to be there on the Sunday!!  I'm signed up for the Reaper Eating competition.  :onfire:
 
Anybody know what vendors are going to be there?  It's not posted on the website yet.  So far I've heard: High River, Puckerbutt, Charman, Angry Irishman and Spicy Shark.

my friends and i haven't decided which day we're going yet, but if it's all the same to everyone, i'll try to get us to go on sunday then. a little THP meetup!
 
lol, omg. good luck on the competition. personally i wouldn't wanna eat more than a couple reapers  :fireball:
 
i'll try the less intense eating contests to try to get a free t-shirt or whatever though.
 
last year, pretty much anyone who wanted could just walk up on stage for the contests. i hope you don't HAVE to sign up ahead of time this year or i guess i'm out of luck.
 
I'm about an hour's drive from where it's being held.  I don't handle big crowds well, though.  Checking out some photos/video from last year it looks to be somewhat of low-key thing?

yeah it's not usually super crowded.  the day I went last year (last minute thing) there weren't really any lines for anything save for the beer tent.  :)
