    There was no bobblehead last year.

    I think waitlist only had access to the practice. The skills competition was open to all. And last time around I don't think it was a sellout either so wouldn't worry too much about not getting tickets.

    Skills Competition

    For those who forgot, the first Skills Competition was held back on November 15th, 2011.

    Buff smoked a hardest shot over 100 mph and Burmistrov had a sick breakaway goal.

    Should be interesting to see how it looks this year.

    Question about the game on Saturday... do they have a bobblehead for everyone in attendance or is it a situation where you have to show up hella early to get one?

    The Ladd night, in the first season, they had enough for everyone IIRC. There were still lineups like crazy prior to the game but you could get one easily enough. We showed up, got in, got our bobble head, took it back to the car and then went for beers.

    I'd still recommend going earlier than usual, but not hella early.

    And if anyone doesn't want their Pavelec bobblehead (c'mon, you haters, pony up) I'll buy it off ya. :)

    Thanks for the info. Do they have a way of preventing people from getting multiples?

    Yup, they scan your ticket. Once it's in the system, it can't get another. You have to have a ticket/card/paper to get the bobblehead.

    From the announcement at last game, looks like they will be at your seats this year.

    For the Ladd one I believe they only had 10-12K bobbleheads. For the Pavelec one on Saturday they announced there will be 15K. Everyone will get one.

    Oh I can't see any problems with them being at the seats :shakehead There'll be at least a few ticked off people that night. I didn't hear the announcement at the Blues game though but that's probably because I'm not always paying attention to the announcements anyway.

    I didn't know Ladd was limited but I guess I also didn't care cuz I got mine. Sadly that just means now I'm going to be hunting down both Pavs and Buffy to ensure I have them all. Wish they'd announce the promos earlier so that you could factor it into the game draft in the groups. Not that it would influence the draft by much, but I ended up with a Phoenix game in between when the Dallas (Pavs) and Carolina (Buff) games were picked. I'd have been fine with any three of the games but if I can get me some useless stuff to clutter the house up, I'm all over that.

    Has it been confirmed the bobble heads will be at the seats? I am wondering how early I need to show up tomorrow.

    Won't they just hand them out as you enter the building?

    For the Ladd bobbleheads they had you line up inside the concourse (well, outside the building as well because the line went that far) and pick them up at a table. I don't know if that has any bearing on what they'll do this time, it's just a historical perspective on last time.

    Still looking to pick one up if anyone is interested in parting with it.

    They sell Ladd bobbleheads at the Jets store.

    Are they the same as the ones for the giveaway? I realize it's probably a trivial difference.

    Just got the email

    At the St Louis game they put little Jets rewards flyers in all the cupholders. I was like the 6th person to go sit in my section... and mine was missing. :laugh:

    I'm sure this will go well.

    Putting them on the seats?
    Good way of having someone take four at a shot

    What was wrong with the voucher system? They are setting themselves up for a lot of work and potential problems with that setup. How are they going to handle 1000 people showing up saying that when they got to their seat there was no bobblehead?
