View Full Version : IMPORTANT: National ABC Event Ticket Info

In years past, the National ABC was open to anyone and everyone.

But this year, due to the anticipated size of the event (which grows every year) and number of people who attended last year, we will need to cap it. While unfortunate, this allows us to address safety and security concerns.

As loyal FORVM members, we are giving you first dibs at getting a ticket for the event. It will be put up in The Shop tomorrow morning, 2/18 at 9am EST. I will post a link to in here on the FORVM when it goes live.

NOTE: It'll be one ticket per person.


UPDATED

When you process your request, The Shop may ask for credit card information. However, it will not charge anything to your card. Here's a brief run down of the steps for tomorrow. Let me know if these make sense...

1. You must be logged into The Shop before placing order (NOTE: The Shop is NOT your FORVM login)
2. Add this item—National Animal Barbell Club (ABC) Ticket—to your cart (limit 1 per person)
3. Select “View Shopping Cart’
4. Enter promotion code: NationalABC and proceed to next step
5. When shipping option comes up, select “$0.00 Ground Shipping”
6. Although this is a free event, you will need to enter payment information to complete your ticket order
7. In the Review Order stage, please list your t-shirt size under “Special Instructions”
8. Place order; PRINT COPY OF RECEIPT (this will be your ticket to the National ABC)

Oh Damn. Ask for the secret that makes his 1000 lb squat look like he is doing 225.

Good call! I updated the first post to include this info.

I tested the process out in The Shop and it appears that it'll ask for credit card information but it will not charge anything--might be the way The Shop is set up.

Here's a brief run down of the steps for tomorrow. Let me know if these make sense...

1. You must be logged into The Shop before placing order (Please note, this is different than your FORVM login)
2. Add this item—National Animal Barbell Club (ABC) Ticket—to your cart (limit 1 per person)
3. Select “View Shopping Cart’
4. Enter promotion code: NationalABC and proceed to next step
5. When shipping option comes up, select “$0.00 Ground Shipping”
6. Although this is a free event, you will need to enter payment information to complete your ticket order
7. In the Review Order stage, please list your t-shirt size under “Special Instructions”
8. Place order; PRINT COPY OF RECEIPT (this will be your ticket to the National ABC)

Item is not live, so the steps, of course, won't work yet.

Not that it will stop me of course, but I am not sure people are going to want to throw down their credit card number.

We tested out every way possible in the system and for some reason, it still asks for the card info. It's actually not saved at all in our system and won't be charged. I tested it with credit card, just to be safe!

Just about time. I was worried that I wasn't going to make it in on time to make it b/c of a snow storm in NJ--it wasn't terrible but I got stuck behind plow trucks for quite awhile, lol.

When this goes live, let me know if you experience any issues. I want to make sure everything works smoothly! I tested it yesterday and everything worked when I placed a test order for the ticket.
