I get a letter( also an email) thanking me for my continued support of the LV 51s. It says they want to honor the season ticket holders as it's the last season at Cashman Center before they move to the new stadium. They ask if I will attend Friday's game and how many guests I'm bringing. I RSVP for two and never hear back.
Day of the game, I call and ask about tickets. Woman says she has my RSVP but knows nothing about tickets.
I call my ticket rep and get a voicemail saying he's on vacation and gives me another guy to call. That guy knows nothing about tickets for the event.Nor any plan to honor season ticket
My rep gets back and calls me. He knows nothing about the offer and offers me two tickets for a game this week.
Am I misunderstanding this whole thing. If someone invites you to an event and request you RSVP, wouldn't you think you are a guest, not a paying customer?

I'm going to put on my red flag alarm hat and say this seems like a scam. They seem like they are doing a variant of the "Runaround bait and switch," scam. They claim they are giving you a special RSVP tickets and then all of a sudden when you call about the RSVP they claim they don't know what you are talking about and the guy who claimed he was in charge of your RSVP ticket is "on vacation,". Then someone else claims he will get you free tickets. This stinks as bad as a fish that rot 5 days ago. :/

I seriously doubt that the Las Vegas minor league baseball team would try to rip off season ticket holders.

Not fielding a competitive team the last few years has been rip off enough.

Why did you call?
You have season tickets, you use them. They probably scheduled some sort of cake and coffee reception and wanted to know what the turnout would be or how much champagne to have on hand. It was not a separate event.
You just made a problem for yourself and frankly if no one knows anything about the event or tickets for it, then that answers your question Stop bugging people about it, show up and enjoy the game. IF there is a special "whatever" fine, if they changed their minds you will find out.

Calvin Ayre did something like this a decade ago. Sent invitation, sought RSVP... and then sent further information as to exact place and admission "code" and parking info a few hours before the event. Ridiculous planning. Ridiculous assumptions about his guests flexibility. These things happen.

Going backwards. .. what do you want it to say? I will change it.

Without being able to read the exact phrasing of what you got, I would take it as:

You already purchased season tickets, so you have the admission covered, right? At least that's what they're assuming in what you said.

You said, yes, you'll be attending the game you already paid for, and they can expect you at their Season Ticket Holder event, held during/before/after somewhere on the grounds of the stadium.

Presumably the snacks/drinks/ will be complimentary, maybe you meet some players, get some tschotckes. (Love that word, can't spell it). They ask for the RSVP so they know how many they have to plan for.

You.show up to the game, letter and game/season tix in hand, friend with you. At the gate, you ask to be directed to the reception. They send you there.

Seems very uncomplicated to me. I could be missing something. Like, even though you bought season tickets, you don't have tickets? Is that what you're saying? Or you bought less than a full package that didn't include that game somehow?

RSVP = répondez s'il vous plaît= Please reply with a response.

They seemed to ask " Are you coming to the event, where you will be honored, possibly shmoozed with free food and extra access "

You are a season ticket holder? Doesn't that mean you don't need a basic admission ticket?

So far so easy to understand: They know you already have your ticket, don't they?

Then it gets more complex "Will you be coming? How many guests are you bringing along? RSVP" (I paraphrase)

Well, to me that implies they want to know how many people they need to cater for: How many complementary goody bags to make up: How many seats to set aside for 'honored supporter guests' I don't see how there is any suggestion that your guests would get basic tickets to the event. I'd expect they were proposing that your guests would pay for their own basic admission, but that being with you, they would get extra 'honor' along with you.

Mind you, I reckon they should have made it crystal clear, just as you should have clarified before turning up. Pity you couldn't get through.
If you are enjoying the game, you're already winning.

The use of the word "strike:" do you mean it as "strike one?"

If so, what will happen after three "strikes?"
"What, me worry?"
