They were not tickets to see the Rolling Stones at the Thomson Depot, but they did go pretty fast Monday and Tuesday.
The 1,000 tickets to the Thomson Bulldog-Washington County Golden Hawk football game were sold in a little over four hours.
“There were cars waiting in the parking lot out front at 6 a.m., Monday,” said Kim Barnett, THS assistant principal. Joyce Shurling, school secretary for 36 years, said the first tickets on Monday were sold at 7 a.m.
“They were gone at 9:15 a.m., Monday. It was quite the rush, but we were ready for them,” she said, adding that there had not been a run like that on tickets in five years or more.
