UNLESS, you only got the tix because you could get them without waiting
in line.  Sorry, I'm not allowed to say how I did, but relax, you
probably couldn't, without a large group.  Keys: "collective
bargaining", "advance sales", and "sweeten the pot".  B-)

Not necessarily.  Some people would just bring a book -- especially
SCAdians!  Standing for an hour is no big deal to some people who do it
every day whilst commuting, or on sentry duty, or whatever.

(though the latter is where the former came from)
