Good call. Checked DART time from airport to hotel - avg 2.5 hours. :/ Apparently that line only runs during commuting hours...

Eileen - tell me what you find. Stuff I saw online was ~$140 with no gas or insurance.

Also gas is cheaper there. If you fill up on way back to airport should be good. I will look a little more when i get on full computer at home shortly.

Rental car info found out we booked through USAA with Hertz so she didnt have to pick up insurance. 2 weekend days @16.16 + 5 extra hrs $7.60. Plus Taxes & fees = $78.80.
Cheepest i found with insurance was Dollar for $144 Economy car. Choose their deal a free weekend day its they call technically a free weekend day deal. Unless others have found something better. Might try priceline though.

For rental cars check with your credit card company. Many of them offer some kind of insurance when you reserve and pay for the vehicle with that card. Anyone flying in Sunday, I'm happy to give you a lift from the airport.

another thing to think about, if you are budget sensitive, for this trip. Between the airport and Frisco, your best driving options will be the SH121 toll road, and the North Dallas Tollway. They do electronic tolling there, so expect that your rental car company will flow those tolls back to you, with a servicing charge to boot.

The ECS group ticket purchase deadline has now passed. Thank you to the 128 of you that will be traveling as our largest away group of supporters ever going to Dallas/Frisco.

If you still want to get in, you can contact FC Dallas Ticket Rep Matt Denny directly at (469) 365-0251 to purchase tickets and advise him you want to purchase tickets in the visiting support section. Even if you purchase your ticket directly from FC Dallas, a reminder that our entire section will be treated as General Admission. Also keep an eye on the forums here as you will not directly receive the Monkey Mail. It will be reposted here after it is sent.

When will our tickets be sent to us and how?
When: Hopefully late tonight, probably while you are sleeping or first thing tomorrow morning. We still have to receive the tickets and work our Monkey magic.
How: You ticket will be attached to the Monkey Mail which will be sent to the email address on record when you purchased your ticket. The Monkey Mail will have all the details you need to know.

Two of the biggest scams in the world are rental car insurance and prepaid gas. I have never seen a credit card that didn't cover up to 75k on a rental. The BECU debit cards even do that. Prepaid gas is just as bad, because they charge you a full tank no matter what. When have you ever returned a car bone dry? They're always getting a few gallons from you.

If anyone gets thirsty there, Barry (the owner of the Londoner in Addison and Frisco) is offering to buy you all a pint at the Addison Londoner. Give him a call - 214 662 2414 and tell him Liz sent you. Also ask "Who the fuck are you" when you meet him. He'll enjoy that!

Crash, when he spoke with you, did he mention that the section would be treated as GA? I know you know, but we just want to make sure that they are carrying that message to everyone who buys direct. Don't want anyone disappointed and distracted from the mission.
