I'm glad for you. Interesting that some are being charged immediately without confirmation of seat assignments and others aren't. Mine was charged for six all event tickets, or $6000 almost immediately! Since I'm not footing the bill for all, but just mine, I'm not complaining, but I just wonder what the underlying rationale is for this.

Just got my confirmation! I ordered very early and I think was one of the first to be called.

Susan mentioned in the email she sent out last week that because the LOC is a new organization it is only allowed by the credit card companies to do a limited $$ amount of transactions a day. Apparently this is also impacting when credit cards are charged.

I know it's standard practice at Nationals, it's still unusual. My concern, though, is with the continued lack of a receipt/acknowledgment for a rather significant amount of money spent. I'm not sure I get the connection between picking seats (which certainly is great) and severals months without a receipt. Hopefully, all will work out.RobinA - We apologize for the delay in sending out confirms but as others commented up thread, it's an entirely manual process. Each confirm must be created individually and personalized, so it's time consuming. Add to that the fact that we are trying to work on many different aspects of the event at once, and voila - we have a backlog. We can certainly understand that it might be uncomfortable to not yet have a written receipt for your purchase, and can only hope that our word would serve as some assurance in the interim. The Skating Club of Boston has been in business for 100 years (we just celebrated our centennial anniversary earlier this year) and we are certainly not in the business of scamming anyone, so please don't worry about the security of your seats and purchase.


Robin, just contact Susan Withrow, Associate director of the event, by emailing her at info@boston2014.comYes - if any of you have other concerns, please don't hesitate to contact us directly.


You can also PM Boston2014 here but that would be slower.....:shuffle:

Apparently this is also impacting when credit cards are charged.Yes, it's a bit frustrating that we've been in business for 100 years, but because for accounting and audit purposes we have to run everything under the LOC, which of course is new for the event, the credit card company is limiting how much we can charge each day. Of course, this is all for "your protection," as they love to tell us, but it's frustrating nonetheless.

Well, thanks again for your patience and interest in the event. And please do plan to stop by our booth at Omaha so that we can say hello in person and help you plan your trips. :)

We really appreciate your updates. I dont think any of us can really appreciate how much work and stress goes into putting on an event of this size. The last promoter I talked to went bald!!!!! :)

I believe Boston2014 is someone other than Susan, so thank you for your updates and for your patience with us fans, oh nameless one! ;)

Any idea when the official hotels will be open for reservations?

The hotels will not take reservations more than a year out, so early January.

Are you getting any other hotels? The ones in the website now are not where I would want to stay. I much prefer downtown to the "waterfront" we seem to be stressing now.

There's a Hilton in the Financial District listed.

Wow...yes, it just appeared out of thin air...no announcement from Boston 2014? Will have to check it out and
make sure it is on the official shuttle route.

I just received tickets for a Christmas gift. I have never been to Boston and know nothing about where to stay. Is it usually best to stay at one of the official hotels and try to use the shuttle for transportation?
