    Better count "Nightly" and then weekly. Saturdays will see a lot more bodies than almost any other night.
    The other thing to sometimes pre-consider are Monday holidays, this makes for a much busier Sunday night, don't send too many helpers home early!
    It can be just like having two Saturdays IN A ROW! $$$

    Our tickets are numbered. At any given moment I can ask the box office what # we are at. We keep nightly totals and last year my wife, bless her heart, kept HOURLY totals too. I like it cause I know exactly how many tickets I need to sell to start making a profit and once that ticket is sold I can relax....

    Actually, I am relieved once I hit the break even point, cause I know that all the money I invested for that season has been made back. After that I can start to feed the family again. We do not eat at all in Sept and the 1st week of October! lol

    Dirk,

    Can you tell me your source for your numbered tickets? allan@bennettscurse.com if you'd rather email it.

    We've been looking for a good source for this...

    Thanks,
    Allan

    We use an electronic ticket machine that keeps count every time a ticket is printed/produced. It keeps track of different levels of tickets like adult tickets, child tickets, and VIP tickets individually and totals per night. It also shows how much was made $$$ wise which is helpful when bouncing the totals to the register at the end of the night.
    With a punch of a button, we get a current count at that time. We usually do this every two hours or at half time each night just to see where we stand.

    We used the wristbands for one year. We will never do that again. We were amazed at how many customers needed assistance putting on their wristband. It held up the ticket line and the little tabs peeled off the adhesive part were all over the ground. I personally dont recommend them. Just my .02 cents Greg
