For those of us who don't know, what was the issue last year with Ace?
Convention Center was sold out in like an hour.....the previous year it lasted through the first 2 groups. It worked for me though, I was forced to Bayfront and actually liked it more than Convention Center

Thanks for the explanation!

Curious, what did you like more about HBF parking?  I may consider that as an option, as well!

I believe the underground sold out so quick because the sale opened early and there where suggestions that other groups were able to buy. That was never proven to ACE tho, since i suspect, no one in group 2 who had gotten a spot wanted to draw attention to the fact that they got in early.

^^^^ that is speculation to as we don't know how many people are in group 1 etc

Is underground great to park in or is it really hard to get in and out of with traffic coming and going? I used 6th and K last year which is very close and easy to get in and out of.

it depends on when you arrive and where you're coming from/going to. The key is drive as little as possible in the gaslamp area

I was in Group 1 last year and, on a hunch, I attempted to purchase parking spaces 15 minutes before they said they would open and was successful.

I guess I forgot my password at Ace and I'm asking it to reset and it says it's emailing me, but I am not getting the email. When I tried to set up a new account, it tells me I already have one, so that's a bust too I guess.

Got signed up, but there seems to be a glitch with the “account settings”.  After creating an account I’m trying to update my address info, and it keeps prompting me to enter a new password...oh well.

Guess I either don’t need to enter address info in at all, or perhaps they’ll ask for it during the point-of-sale.

Yes, they did the same thing last year.

They said that this year they were going to authorize the cards, to make sure that they were valid.

Being that I have six credit cards and one debit card and that you're not allowed to enter more than two for each, I only entered 14 E-mail addresses.  Worse gets to worse, I'll use either Uber or Lyft.  The upside with ride-sharing is they can let me off anywhere in the event of road closures.  I just need one for myself and one for my sister-in-law.

I only entered 14 E-mail addresses.

I hope you took advantage of sub-addressing introduced with RFC 5233. It makes doing that much more manageable.
