How can my friends and I be put in the same group? If my friends and I purchase our tickets separately, how do we insure that we are put in the same group? I want to send out invites to people to join me, but I do not want to pay for their tickets myself.
There are two ways to request this. 1) Put in the notes section of the ticket purchase. This works well if you know in advance who will be in your group. 2) Or email email@example.com with notice of who is in your group at least 5 days in advance of the event.
