Member Only Ticket Presales
We would never want our members to miss out of getting to attend our signature events due to the high demand of tickets. For this reason, we offer members only ticket pre-sales to signature events to ensure all our members can purchase tickets, before we open ticket purchases to the general population.
To take part in our presale call Chris Zolenski at (252)-639-3524 during the dates listed below.
