    Yes very flexible. I choose the donation option. Since I probably will be among
    the 7500 based on priority points, I just don't trust old man weather. I am not crazy about sitting outside in cold weather. I done it once and ended up in the hospital. I was concerned about the deductible of the donation after receiving a call on Monday as you did West River, so called them again for clarification this morning. The donation of ticket(s) is fully deductible since it will go directly to a fully tax deductible Athletic Directors fund. I had thought they might put it in the Jackrabbit Club fund in which case since you receive priority points and preferences is no longer deductible. This all matters if you do the long form for taxes. If you use the standard deduction method, different ball game.

    I zoomed in on Rabbit Round Up with Coach Stig. For the spring season practice begins on Jan 22. Most likely the first game will be away. The conference people are taking the possibility of bad weather into account. The home crowd at Dana will be 7500. That’s as much I recall.

    The incentive would've been marketing for all three (SDSU, JMU, and the Twins/Target Field) on a site that's hosted D1 and DIII games. As for opting for a HS or college field, those would be less likely to have the infrastructure to support broadcast media.

    You may have noticed I mentioned it being unlikely because JMU is scheduled to play the Tarheels on 9/19 anyway. My point was that it'd be more likely JMU would play there than traveling to Brookings.

    But wait, there's more to this story...

    While the CAA has cancelled fall conference competitions, not all schools have confirmed that they're ready to cancel their season. James Madison reported Friday, after the CAA announcement that they're still exploring options. "we are currently looking at how to rebuild a schedule for the Fall season while following health and safety protocols and guidance." While JMU is exploring all options, I'd be interested to see if they'd be willing to take a chartered flight to Brookings on September 19th to play the Jackrabbits? If they are serious about not walking away from their season, they will need to look at safe venues to play. I'm also sure that Justin and the staff would have to do their due diligence to insure the safety of our team with bringing a school from the east coast to Brookings.

    I just want to confirm that this is not necessarily in the works, just my curiosity at work.
    That implies the ACC canceled non-conference games, as JMU is scheduled to play UNC on 9/19.

    Let's really spice things up and assume that does happen. Rather than asking JMU to travel to Brookings, why not play at Target Field with no fans. Twins are in Chicago from 9/16-9/20, so site is theoretically available.

    My understanding is that if season is cancelled, no refunds or messing with priority points, but they will apply this year’s purchase towards next years season tickets. There is a point where a negative cash flow will occur, where the tax payer money will be involved in some form. Either a grant or a loan. Continued donations are essential, in order to prevent this cash deficit.

    I'd be more apt to favor certificates for socially-distanced scoops of SDSU ice cream

    Maybe combine the two into "cab floats"?

    I'd be curious how many other season ticket buyers would agree. Compromise could be to offer Priority Point bonus if folks purchasing 2020 season tickets would allow amount paid for tickets to be converted to 2021 Jackrabbit Club donations. Then folks could pay for the actual tickets whenever season resumes and Athletics would have funding for scholarships and context on 2020-2021 budget deficits.

    Seems like every single day now I hear of another FCS conference cancelling/postponing football this fall. CAA rumored to be next which is a big one. As a healthcare professional, I’m not sure the fall/winter will be any better from a pandemic standpoint so I don’t know if football will be viable in early 2021 if the fall doesn’t work. As a Jackrabbit alum and college sports fan, I don’t get how athletic depts will withstand the financial fallout from this time let alone the disruption in the lives of these student athletes and their dreams and future plans.
    If you bought a season ticket, they got that money to live on. I don't expect refund checks from SDSU Athletics, A big.key, and since you, mentioned you were a healthcare professional, is a vaccine. If the Russians are allegedly hacking, then we are getting close to coming up with something that may work. It can't be fun to have to sit in the ticket office and field telephone calls from angry fans, but its a job for someone. No doubt it will be interesting the months to come. The only good thing about the COVID virus is that we shut done this fast moving country and now in getting back together we look at what we have been doing and wonder is there a better way!
