Does anyone know how one goes about getting tickets for the 1996
Olympic Games in Atlanta, GA?  I was just wonmdering what the best and
most efficient way is, seeing as there is probably a lot of red tape
that is associated with it... I appreciate any help that anyone can
give me... Thanks!

The best thing to do now is to get on the ACOG mailing list for housing
and ticket information.  You can call them at 404-224-1996.  I believe
information will be sent out in January.

Was anyone watching the NBC Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade?  They were
supposed to make some announcement on Olympic ticket availability. I
heard something about May 1st being the day that tickets would be
available, but does that really mean that ticket APPLICATIONS would
be available then?  I am assuming that tickets will be sold in a fashion
similar to that done in 1984.

The Detroit Free Press had an article in the Sunday paper 4 days before
Thanksgiving that gave out a phone number (presumably the one you have
listed above.)  My sister called it and apparently knew more from reading
the article than the operator did.  I taped the Parade and watched it in
fast-forward, only to hear that the "big announcement" was the May 1 date,
which the Free Press had reported in that article.

Hi all,
      I work for the Atlanta Committee for the Olympic Games here in Atlanta
and this is what I know. Information will be released on May 1,1995, but
most tickets will be done by a lottery. In other words you will probably
have to send in your request for the tickets you want. Then you will
have to wait till ACOG gets through processing all the requests. When they
are through then they will have a lottery for the tickets then send out
letter to the people who wrote to them about what tickets they have won
 the  right to buy. Then you will send your payment in to them. Now do
not expect that you will get tickets to the Opening and Closing Ceremonies
because most of those tickets will be given to the Political secture and to
the sponser. But there will be plenty of tickets, I think about 11 million
of them, so everyone will have a chance. If anyone has any questions contact
me at this e-mail address. I will give whatever information I am permitted
to give to you.
                             Sincerely
