SCHEDULE

SATURDAY September 30, 2017

MORNING Procedure:

  • The entrance from the street, parking garage, shuttle drop off and Marriott Hotel all converge into the Convention Center Motor Lobby.
  • This lobby will open no later than 7:00 AM.
  • For safety reasons, there will be a queue line set up in the lobby area.
  • Players will be moved upstairs in groups until the lobby queue line clears.
  • At the top of the stairs, you will enter into the pre-event area on the exhibit hall floor level.
  • There will be information tables set up in the pre-event area with printed decklists, team lists, pens, etc.
  • VIPs – report to the VIP information table in pre-event area once upstairs.
  • Go directly to the entrance queue line as soon as you are prepared for check-in (decklist, team list must be out and unfolded, and DS must be updated and ready to have the battle team locked for the check-in process) If it is not ready, you will be sent back out of the line.
  • All entrants (players and guests) will be wrist banded. (For insurance and safety reasons, we need attendee numbers).
  • Players will then move into the exhibit hall for check-in.
  • Due to safety concerns, the queue lines are broken into sections so that entrance and egress doors are not blocked in case of emergency.
  • Attend prepared, enter the line prepared and follow Convention Center and Event Team member directions. It will definitely make for a smoother check-in for everyone.
  • Event Team members will do their very best to get you in and processed as fast as they can. The event will have a great deal of coverage in the check-in area to move the line quickly!
