Petition Closed

George Masons' slogan is "where innovation is tradition" but it might as well be "where innovation blocks tradition.".

The procedure to obtain seats at the 2012 CAA Swimming & Diving Championship are very disappointing! We have several people on the waiting list who will likely not see their child compete. In addition to parents, there are team members who are not on the conference team that are also shut out.

If that is not enough, team fans do not have a section as we are now all interspersed. Basically, team fans are scattered through out the venue. This frankly is ruining the conference experience for all of us and the athletes. Part of the fun and tradition is sitting together and cheering together. Originally, Mason said that we would be assigned a "block", we do not have this.

Tickets have never been limited and parents have never been restricted as to where they may sit.

Sign the petition to send CAA Championship organizers a clear message that we want the traditional seating arrangements back. Tickets should not be limited! We want unrestricted seating. We want to sit together and support...together! That's tradition.
