You can get tickets on Eventbrite, and the best way to reserve tickets is by selecting a team captain and having them be in charge of tickets for ALL team members. For example, if Monica, Chandler, Ross and Rachel are a team and Monica gets put in charge, she will then reserve tickets for herself, Chandler, Ross and Rachel = (4) in total. If you think you’re up or the challenge alone, please reserve only one ticket!
