    30K would make sense since that is probably close to the number of seats in the lower level. From what I was reading the upper level seats were simply tossed over the second level railing and allowed to crash on the floor of the lower level. That would be concrete if the lower level seats were already removed. I certainly wouldn't want one of those that was pitched over the second level railing, let alone pay $68 ea. for them.

    Yeah, I had to drive from Fargo to get them. When I asked about shipping, I just got a big old hell no.

    Wouldn't surprise me. That actually sounds kind of fun... Although when I was in the dome they were still dismantling, and I didn't see any evidence of it.

    Another part of it was because of the way the seats had to be cut, so that each end seat still had a support with it. That rendered the seats on the end unusable. So it took 3 seats to make 1 ready for sale, 4 for 2, 5 for 3, etc.
