I love being a husband and a father of five children, ages 2 – 18 years. Yeah, you read that right. We have one child in diapers and the eldest having just graduated high school.
Finding ways to spend time with each child and with activities they enjoy is a constant challenge for me, particularly as four of them are girls. Look, there are limits to how many times I can go to the mall, play dress-up or get a pedicure.
A few weeks ago I sat with our 13 year old daughter, explained my struggle of coming up with great ideas for daddy-daughter time I and asked for ideas. What would she like to do when we have time together?
Going out to eat?
Going hiking? Camping? Biking? C’mon, you learned how to ride a bike when you were, like 10?
Enter ScoreBig to the rescue!
Via ScoreBig I was easily able to choose from a variety of entertainment options from major league sports, top artist concerts, major attractions and a wide variety of other event options. I could specify how much I would be willing to pay with clear options for seating selections.
Setting your own price can be a tricky step. Will your bid be successful? With ScoreBig’s Probability Meter I determined I would make a bid 30% below retail and the colored meter showed a “green” probability that my bid would be accepted at that price.
ScoreBig satisfied another question through their Quick Notification feature. I knew within a few minutes that my offer was accepted and the tickets were emailed to me directly.
As part of my review process I also “bumped” into an issue after hours and their response and follow up was prompt and helpful, resolving the issue the first time and to my satisfaction.
The one concern I have is that I’m not sure if where we’re sitting is a “family-friendly” section as I hear there are some major party areas during Sounder’s games that can be challenging. I’m not sure this is anything ScoreBig could help with as it seems to be more ‘tribal knowledge” of those who have attended Sounders games in the past.
Our daughter loves soccer and she’s played for a few seasons. She was even the captain of her team for a couple of years and she was my assistant during the World Cup 2014 as she could explain the rules to me.
Thanks again to ScoreBig for helping me pick the perfect event for our father-daughter time that I’m sure we’ll never forget!
