    Reno ukefest early bird

    I have two early bird tickets for the Reno ukefest 2019 and we can’t go. Id like to sell them for what I paid. They were $458 for the pair. Do I put them up for sale in the marketplace?

    Thanks.

    Exactly. Well said. This is what I was trying to say. Lots of ways to address amplification. Easy to spend a lot that is unneeded.
