Even duct tape can't fix stupid ... but it can muffle the sound...and zip ties, properly applied, can reduce the movement!

After 9:45AM, attendees begin to line up and safety becomes an issue.
Prior to 10AM, only vendors and staff may enter the swap room.
Please encourage your pre-paid sales to come at 10AM for pickup and to pay an admission. This is fair to everyone.

Limit of two vendor badges per registered vendor.
Exceptions are made for young children of vendors.

Might be a little shy this time.  Madison is having their "Cataclysm" show on the same day.
