Both event pages are located at Facebook.com/NMSUi/events. Once you “join” the event so that your Facebook account identifies you as “going,” you’ll automatically be registered for the tickets. Plus, if you “invite” your Facebook friends to either event, then they’ll also be automatically registered to win. Since we will award tickets to both the “going” and “invited” groups separately, you can invite your friends without hurting your own chances of winning!
