Just got out of a 3 hour wait w/ a badge!

PHew.....finally...got to the hotel around 7 and then waited for a couple of people, then filled out forms and then the long wait commenced...yikes...never realized they were like this. I'm getting pre-night jitters, so I thought I'd share?

Anyone else have stories about their night so far whether its registration or actually going to the hotel?? See everyone tomorrow!

ok , so I overexaggerated a little bit, but my story needed punch! Although the whole process was about 3 hours. I left on the T about 5 of, got there probably 15 past and then waited for friends and after we had all our forms filled out, we probably got into line about 7:30-7:45, but then we did wait in line til 9:30, and we got back from the T at 10. But there was still a very long wait... :P

there was also quite a few problems with people lacking in a photo id. a few claimed they had no idea they were suppose to bring one. (the person in front of me did this) and although there were 2 clerks for each line --- 2 for preregistered and 2 for registered, it basically halted the line for a while. About three times I was in the same spot for about 10 minutes and it was most likely because of this.

of course prereged people would need to bring id, they just cant give out badges without knowing its actualy for them

besides if u go into boston without id then.. i dunno youd need to eat a whole lotta smart flakes when u got home

*im talking u as people in general not u the person *

I dont' think it will be too much of a problem. One of my friends was actually going for a few people and he didn't have all their Id's. He talked to the clerk for a couple of minutes and they allowed it. The other person in front of me who didnt' have one on her, they called someone over and he verified it...so they do have the power I believe to not need it, but just bring that card to show you are who you say you are...to tell you the truth they didn't even pay much attention to my id...it was just showing it because of a rule, that's all. maybe its different with pre-reg, i just registered for the first time tonight....and the pre-reg line moved fairly fast...the reg line was the slow one/.
