GoFan Digital Ticketing


Oliver Ames Tickets Will be Digital

The Massachusetts Interscholastic Athletic Association (MIAA) has shifted to digital ticketing for athletic contests, and Oliver Ames will be following their lead. Many Hockomock League teams and communities around the state are going in this direction. 

GoFan is a digital ticket app which can be downloaded directly to your smart phone. Once you download the app and create an account, you can purchase tickets for contests directly through that app for all Oliver Ames HOME contests, and many AWAY contests including state tournament games and matches. 

The decision to move away from cash and into a digital format is not only inline with many other athletic programs in the MIAA, but it also is inline with the reality that fewer people are carrying cash with them. 

So how do you do it?

1) This is the way to go! Pre-purchase your ticket using the GoFan APP. It looks like this:

 
Create a 1 time account, and search the app for the tickets you want to purchase. The purchased tickets will be accessible on the GoFan app on your smart device. 
 
2) Want to use a computer instead of the app? Go to our Oliver Ames Athletics GoFan page here: https://gofan.co/app/school/MA22191
Select the game you want to purchase tickets for and follow the directions. The tickets will be emailed to you. You will still need a smart device at the gate to use these tickets. 
 
3) Purchase a ticket at the gate. We will have QR codes available at the gate for you to scan which will bring you to the GoFan page to sign in or create an account and purchase tickets for that particular game.

General Admission tickets will cost $6 this season. $5 will go to Oliver Ames, and $1 will go to GoFan. 
 
Children 10 and under, and Senior Citizens 65 and over will be allowed in for FREE.

Opioid Overdose Crisis Hits Easton

The state of Massachusetts is experiencing an opioid (opiate) overdose epidemic.  Opioids are painkillers like oxycodone, methadone and heroin and are sold under trade names like Percocet, OxiContin, Vicaden and Demerol among others.

In a recent 5 year period, 30 Easton residents died from opioid related overdoses.  This is serious and it’s right here in our town.

Many families have experienced the ramifications related to opioid misuse as a result of pain relief from athletic injuries.  It is important that you and your student-athlete(s) take the time to read and understand the dangers of the addiction.  Educational materials can be found at this link:  Opiod Education Information

Finally, the following link is to a video presentation about opioid addiction by Dr. Potee:  Dr. Potee - Opioid Video Link

Please do not hesitate to contact the Oliver Ames athletics or health offices if you have any questions or concerns related to this topic.
