    Ok ADA is at the VIP entrance. So won’t be able to do many queue updates today until the lines move inside. ADA is inside now but before security. They say we will get through security at 8 so assuming that’s when they will move the tents indoors as well.

    What’s the bags situation? I have one smaller than a backpack.

    So, to be clear, everyone goes through the tents, even if you are going directly to Wintrust? I assumed there was a separate entrance/queue for Wintrust. Is that not the case?

    Wintrust queues at the arena, don’t come to McCormick at all

    Show Floor - ADA is inside now, not sure about main line.

    Thanks! I'm sure you all will do this, but I'd love to know what the Wintrust queue is like this morning, so I have an idea of what to expect Sunday.

    Everyone have a great day!

    Looking out our hotel room looks like a line not underneath the Wintrust tent going around the corner of Wintrust.

    Was at the Wintrust Arena and the guy in charge says there will be no standby line and no lightspeed reservations at all. He did admit that people that traded codes will get through as any checks will likely be random.

    So overflow (Galaxy) needs to go through the queue into McCormick, correct?

    Yes, once you get through tents and enter you should be able to split for Galaxy, Twin Suns, Show Floor & Celebration Store.

    We were told last night they weren’t doing ID checks (like photo ID) but scanning both QR and badge and if they don’t match the records of who won then you won’t get in.

    As always mileage may vary...

    Very well organized at Wintrust so far. They are scanning codes quickly and queuing us outside security. Just waiting for the doors to open now.

    are they scanning both the code and the badge to see that they match? Or was that just another empty threat to strike fear into the hearts of criminals everywhere?

    I'm in good shape to get a spot at the SWS set. Going to try for the front right corner.
