MM Refunds, and Ticket Buyers, too? Friends?

Recommended Posts

It's likely that MM's will be refunded almost completely their tuition and fees paid so far for expenses beyond camps and education already provided.

What about ticket buyers and Friends members?  Should they get refunds from DCI?  Ticketmaster?  What about ticket sales to shows through the corps themselves?

Yes. Obviously.

I already emailed a corps I bought tickets from to let them know that I don't want a refund, and hope they will use the money as a contribution instead. Hopefully lots of people will do the same, and corps will make it easy to do that when communicating with people about the refunds they're clearly entitled to.

Already donate, so refund my money for tickets purchased for all cancelled DCI events. If interested in attending a performance in 2021 I’ll purchase tickets again.

I think for marching members it will be 100% at the corps discretion.  I know some corps will be trying to give full refunds, and some corps will just be aiming to give some sort of refund.  I would assume some things have already been paid for in advance of the season, so maybe they will take some money off as a credit for next season?  It will be interesting to see.

I donate already as well. I would like a refund from tickets I bought from DCI and take that money and donate it to Bluecoats. Obviously, I am happy to donate the  tickets I bought for Bloo shows to Bloo.

I will not ask for a refund from the Cavaliers for the Lisle show but I’ll take a refund from DCI for championships, Detroit, and St. Louis.

My regular charitable trust donations will continue... Might increase donations to FDCI and some other corps I donate to over the regular year.

I think whether or not tickets are refunded depends on the show and sponsor. 

With shows sponsored by DCI itself (Indy, Atlanta, DCI East, Tour Premier etc) I think you’ll be offered either a refund or a guarantee of the same seats for 2021 which I think could turn out to be a good deal since ticket prices could very well increase in 2021.

I cancelled last month before it automatically renewed. 

actually, I cancelled this month.  It’s still March.  I guess I’m wishing it was April after being in the house for two weeks come Saturday.
