    Does this include the Fence or Cheerleader memberships ? Both of them required you ringing the club

    if that's correct EagleJack - and I have no reason to doubt you - I would be ringing the club tomorrow. Not sure how you can have joined in 2007 and still be at 9000 on the waitlist. Something has gone drastically wrong here if that's the case - in my view.

    Are you sure that you have never missed an annual ITW payment? Even if you're an ITW member and knock back seats when they come up (wanting six together or similar) - I believe that even in those circumstances that you still retain your waitlist number.

    And I believe that the waitlists are subject to an external audit. This is to ensure that there's no deal for club mates and friends etc. this prevents people jumping their place on the waitlist or being pushed back etc. The audit ensures that people paying for ITW have the comfort of knowing that they will be treated according to their waitlist number.

    I could be wrong.:( but your predicament does not sound correct to me.

    Good get Balsam, I was #4226 & the seats were disappearing bloody quick. It was a rushed decision for me, but Im really happy & stoked to be a season member.

    Update

    I hadn't read your later posts and the ITW+ I would ring them anyway given some of the responses from other posters and their experiences with ITW +

    I'm an 11 year member and had seats for the last 3 years, we were In the Wings+ the year before being offered full membership. You've fallen through a giant crack somehow, good luck pleading your case.
    Next year:thumbsu:

    Just got my upgrade offer email but only for flexi memberships. Can reconfirm they are saying the 11 game memberships have officially sold out.

    Looks like I’ll have to wait until next year for a full seated membership...

    Hopefully will have moved a fair way up from the mid 5,000s for next season.

    Well by the sounds of it that'll put me somewhere around 3,100ish in the queue...sigh!

    Is their a general consensus that they will actually have a big turnover of memberships for 2019 onwards, because I have a really hard time believing that's the case. Starting to wonder if the $70 a year is worth it...

    I think it will depend on our form . I can’t see people jumping off if we make the finals again , let alone have a year where we make it deep into the finals

    I feel bad that I’m slightly hoping for a poor season or 2 (to speed up the exodus ) :(

    Likewise, hoping we can trim some of the bandwagon fat...

    I was 4756 and missed out, so it's somewhere between 4474 and 4756.

    The below does concern me slightly. It says if you take a flexi membership you lose your spot in the waitlist, so I would want to make damn sure that those with a flexi membership are given priority to upgrade to a full 11 game reserved membership over those that are still ITW otherwise I won't be doing it!!

    They lose their spot on the wait list as they are now (flexi) Seated members, not ITW members.

    Flexi members "should" be offered the chance to upgrade to 11 games before ITW members - but would only be a 1-for-1 - hence the comment about taking the number of memberships you need. HOWEVER - someone needs to ring the club and confirm this.

    I'm 5200-odd on the waitlist as of last year so I received the offer today. Considering a flexi membership but my goal like most is the 11 game reserved seating, surely a flexi doesn't remove you from the waiting list

    As above - of course it does. You're no longer an ITW member, hence no wait list number.

    BUT you should be able to upgrade before ITW offers in future years.

    Just ring the club and ask !!

    Makes sense that flexi members have priority over lowly ITW members.

    Spoke to the club about this today - and the guy said flexi's would have higher priority

    But I'll be honest - the guy on the end of the phone, as nice as he was, didn't sound like an authority on the topic.

    I got my offer today (I'm 52XX) and had 3 options. Front Row (Please... quality sales spin), Cheersquad (where someone takes half your seat because they ate too many mrs macs) or Flexi.

    Will end up going with the 3 game flexi - actually suits our family

    Absolutely, but if we're three years down the track and my wait list number doesn't decrease considerably I will have to think long and hard about whether it is worth it any more!
