Just hot off the press:

The show will be at Mackay Auditorium on the CU campus in Boulder.
It seats 1200.

Efforts are underway to make the tickets for the remaining 850 seats available to all the people that got shut out by the sellout yesterday.

Ticket information will be posted up on the AAC site tomorrow. (Thursday, 18th Sept)

I'll post more up when I get details.

nice update for more donation$$ ~ There was talk on supertop of allowing some tickets to have better seating. Will the Neptune tickets be honored this way for the folks who invested up to 1.5 hrs in line..?

It'd be a bit ridiculous to give people that waited in line at Neptune's preferential treatment. The line at Neptune's was very expected and someone determined to get tickets would've realized their best chance was online when the sale opened.

Dealing with GA at Mackey is gonna be a shit show.

Additional tickets to "An Evening With Layton Kor" will be available for sale Friday, September 19, 2008 at 10:00am Mountain Time. These tickets can be purchased at Neptune Mountaineering in Boulder, CO and online through the AAC website.

With all the confusion, can someone please verify the date that the tickets go on sale. I'm assuming he meant the 19th?

Tickets go on sale @ 10:00am Friday the 19th not the 18th...sorry for the confusion. www.americanalpineclub.org/

Aaron I don't believe it's ridiculous at all. At least that would be -350 folks not fighting for GenAdmin. Sure the line was expected at Neptune's. What was *not* expected was the 'unannounced' early sale online, a bit of a screw-up as *all* tickets should have been up for sale at the same (as announced) to be fair

I was determined to get tickets, so I chose to wait in line. Being a computer geek (and especially after getting screw'd for the Rockies) - I know leaving this in the hands of an online sale is not the best option IMHO. Neptunes had physical tickets and would open their doors no matter what happend on the internet. It's never a good idea to count on an internet connection for anything time-critical if there are other options. Bird in the hand is always better FYI ~Cheers ~(:

OK, so I just attempted to purchase tickets on the AAC website. I didn't get a confirmation number or anything to print out; but it did give me a "your credit card will be charged" message. Is that all you get? Anyone else just get that?

By Lee Smith

Yeah, that's all I got also. Spooky isn't it?

So I waited in line at Neptunes as well, but I got to the door just as the guy came out and said "no more tickets". Shouldn't I get special dispensation?

As an interesting side note, when I got to Neptunes the first time tickets went on sale, I knew they had 150. I actually counted the number of people in front of me and calculated that even if they all bought 5 tickets I would still be able to get one. Imagine my suprise when the line started to swell in front of me. I missed out by about 3 people.


EDIT: I got an e-mail confirmation.

I got my tix this morning and I got the "your credit card has been charged message but no confirmation. I then got an email confirmation so I feel good about it.

Does anyone know if this sold out yet?

Does anyone know where exactly you order tickets on the AAC website, all I can find is listings and times? Do you have to be an AAC member?

By Dougald MacDonald

The link to the order form (hyperlinked "Tickets are now on sale") was briefly off the site this morning, but it was back on the home page soon afterward. I just heard from someone at the AAC that only about 20 tickets are left for sale online, so it will likely sell out today. Not sure if Neptune has any left. Should be a packed house!

Anyone want to sell 2 tickets? Of course, I missed the ticket sale this time around to. My wife and I would love to go.

According to the AAC site, it's officially a sell out. Enjoy!

I read something about book signings being an hour early, with a drop-off/pick-up kinda thing. Anyone know the skinny on this? Here's to the Greatu'n!

"I read something about book signings being an hour early, with a drop-off/pick-up kinda thing. Anyone know the skinny on this? Here's to the Greatu'n!"

This is still being set up. It may be something along the lines of dropping the book off before the event at Neptune's and then picking it up a couple of days later. Right now, they don't know how many books or signing requests are going to be requested. They also don't want to overwhelm Layton so they want to spread it out over a number of days.

One idea being talking about is having a link on Neptune's or AAC's site where people register their intention to drop off a book for signing. Just so that they can gauge the number of requests....

I'll be adding a donation when I drop off my book to be signed, and I would hope that other people feel the same.

Once the details are finalized and I find out I'll post up.

Update on the book signing ....

This will be handled by Neptune's. However, there will be some limitations; copies of Beyond The Vertical only with a minimum donation of $50/book.

The books will have to be dropped off, and then picked up with proper ID at a later date (dates still to be determined).

Do NOT call Neptune's. The specifics will be posted as soon as they are finalized.

Thanks to Ron O. for this information.

hi John et al... I was wondering what would be the best way to donate/contribute. There was talk once of setting up a non-profit for Layton so I was wondering if this was done. I have acquired a donation overage from selling one of my tickets & was wondering how this would be best to give to Layton - thanks

I believe the idea of a non profit or fund to help Layton didn't get off the ground. Hopefully, Neptune's will accept donations on his behalf, but I'm not sure. I hope there is some way to donate on the night as well.

Anyone out there willing to part with 2 tickets still?
