Also, you can imagine that coming through the main gate every day will take much longer as all that extra stuff will have to be inspected each of the 4 days.
Here’s my suggestion: if you have a reserved seat, pile all your stuff on or under your chair and cover it up with a big trash bag. I know they do not want you to do this. But if everyone did (in protest and for the sake of our backs) then what would they do? Pick it up? And take it where? Who are they going to get to do that? (Sorry volunteers,I know you all work extremely hard; I am hoping you’d just leave all that stuff where it is.)
