    from Cyclones.com

    When I first started to read this, I thought; "geez, what a good idea maybe a simpleton like me might have a chance, especially if I went in on it with family/friends."

    Then I read near the bottom of the article and the details of the "financial commitments". Ouch!

    Although it places me out of the running, I think it is a great idea. I can only imagine what the winning bid will be..... My guess: The highest bid for mens: $20,000. womens: $7,500.

    They are taking the tables where the scouts and some media used to sit, and putting them on the concourse. This would open the court to sell tickets to. They are new to the public, but have always been there.

    This reminds me... A couple of years ago at the pre-season thingy where the men&#39;s and women&#39;s teams strut their stuff, the Story County Cyclone boosters (I think) auctioned off two front row parquet seats. I think they went for something like &#036;2,000 bucks&#33; What an incredible deal that guy got. I think the boosters club probably lost a bit on that one. I was kicking myself later for not bidding.



    Someone invovled correct me if I&#39;m remember it wrong.


    GO CYCLONES!

    I think you have to pay like a minimum of $2500 to the National Cyclone Club just to get lower level seats at Hilton right? Plus whatever those season tickets cost on top of that. That guy definately got a bargain but then again our team was so sad to watch last year I'd say he probably didn't his money's worth by the end of the season.
