"When life gives you lemons, make lemonade." - originally attributed to Elbert Hubbard
But the NHL has given the fans lemons, so we're going to suggest that the fans make some lemonade.
As Columbus Blue Jackets ticket holders, we are entitled to request refunds from the team for games not played. The official team policy is this:
|IF YOUR ACCOUNT FOR THE 2012-13 SEASON IS PAID IN FULL YOU WILL HAVE TWO (2) OPTIONS TO CHOOSE FROM:|
Option 1: Keep Money on Account and Receive a Credit of 4% Toward Future Ticket Purchases
If you want to keep your money with the club and get your four percent annualized interest, more power to you. If, however, you wish to receive a refund, we'd like to offer a suggestion that will make our community that much better by your actions:
Donate the value of at least one of your refunded tickets to a local charity.
In the next day or two, we'll offer a suggestion for a local charity to support. And, as long as this lockout lasts, we'll offer a new charitable suggestion at the end of every month.
The lemons are here. Let's get moving on making some lemonade.
