backpacks at the nationals? Allowed? Frowned on?
Posted by PatlaborUnit1 on Saturday, July 28, 2007 2:07 PM

Hi guys.

I have already Emailed the show staff but have not recieved a reply, they are real people with real jobs too and I imagine it's tough to answer them all.

Anyway in past experience are backpacks allowed in/around the vendor area? I only went once ten years ago so I dont remember and I was only able to be there for a few hours.  I dont see any kind of rules/restrictions on the Nats website.

Experiences?

thanks!

David

i don't know if they  are allowed  but the place is so crowded that people would be more apt to bang into each other with them,  or maybe get to close to a table's edge and knock into someone's model   just a thought

Thanks Durr

I guess Il'l just have to haul all the stuff back to the car, I see the rule there at the hotel will be no boxes under the tables.  I have not run into that in all the contests I used to attend in CA, must be a local thing.

I donlt know about this year's venue but at Virginia Beach and Phoenix, there was adequate room between the tables and in the vendor area that with reasonable care, you'd be safe. I typically had a moderately large camera bag slung around on my butt and a good sized camera in front with no problems.
