I know. Ive got tix for me, two of my kids and my mom and MIL. I work and the kids have school. No time tomorrow take a day off to stand In line.
The attendees ARE the security.
I got two tickets and plan on going.
This would be a good place on prep advice.
Here’s a question. If I am in line for 6-8 hours, how are bio breaks handled? Anyone have previous Trump rally experience?
There will be portable units which will require you to step out of line. The folks in line with you will save your place. Go easy on the diuretics, and bring plenty of bottled water. It’s expensive- $4, and you can share. The earlier you go the better your chances are of getting in and getting a good seat. I arrived at 11 am. The doors opened at 4pm, and the event started at 5pm, with the President speaking at about 7:30pm. I would go and be in line 10 hours before POTUS speaks. I was in the nose bleed section.
A lot of the crowd brought the $10 foldable/collapsible camp chairs to sit, and just left them outside the security portals. They were mostly still sitting where folks left them when the event ended, and if not, I doubt anyone cared if they were taken. I regretted not taking one, and not bringing enough water, and drinking too much coffee. Wear comfortable clothes, especially comfortable shoes, and make sure your phone is charged fully, and be frugal with the battery power so that you can use your phone inside to take pictures and text. The wifi / service will be overwhelmed and will be so slow that it may not work. Have some cash on hand just in case you want to buy something on the spot. Good luck!
Thanks for the advice.
More questions. Can I bring a disposable folding chair and back pack? I’ll dump them before security.
Oh, sugar! Wish I could fly out to visit my sister, so I could attend.
Yes. That was in my second post to you. If someone came with you, then one of you can take items back to your vehicle, if it makes sense, depending on the parking situation, or you can ask the folks in line to save your place, and you can put things up, or just leave them someplace and hope for the best.
The line will move almost constantly in a start and stop manner, as organizers will be compressing the line into multiple bodies wide up front. It will likely be almost everyone single file in the back 2/3rds of the line, as this is just human nature.
I was going to camp out, overnight, but my brother had to work, otherwise I would’ve had a way to secure my more valuable property like a sleeping bag and tent. Parking outside the fairgrounds in the neighborhood wasn’t allowed, so a strategy for securing their gear was an issue for everyone overnighting.
There should be a Jumbotron near the security portals, broadcasting until the doors open, so if you get in line early enough, you’ll have that for entertainment. I was 3/4 of a mile away at all times while it was showing FOX? When the doors open, a list of prohibited items appeared on the giant screen.
I hope he references that the House Rep from district 01 is Joe Cunningham that voted to IMPEACH Trump. This seat MUST flip back to Republican.
Trump needs to have an anti-socialism rally in south Florida. ASAP.
Thanks for the great advice.
I hope I’m not wearing out your patience. One more question: How are seats assigned? Is it concert seating?
“The attendees ARE the security.”
that’s a very interesting observation ...
Yes- it’s every man, woman and child for themselves. The most dedicated and rowdy in a good way will be the ones that camped out overnight, and will be the first on the floor at the crowd line directly in front of the stage. An epic experience will be had for everyone in attendance. The crowd will chant a lot. They want to chant a lot. The President likes “us” to chant a lot. There will be a lot of chanting. They will hand out signs. Get some. They make great megaphones.
The SC state GOP will speak.
At the PHX rally, a pastor came out and gave an invocation/blessing/prayer, a woman came out and led us in the Pledge of Allegiance, another woman came out and sang the National Anthem, the AZ Governor, Doug Ducey spoke, my US Congresswoman, Debbie Lesko- CD 8, spoke, the US Senator for AZ, Martha McSally spoke, Kimberly Guilfoyle, Don’s girlfriend spoke, Don Trump Jr spoke, and then the POTUS spoke. There might have been a couple other Congressmen that spoke, and perhaps one or two other AZ based speakers that I am forgetting about spoke.
It is worth it to get there on time so that you are inside and experience the entire event, from beginning to end. POTUS always comes out to Lee Greenwood’s song, God Bless The USA, and he always leaves on the Rolling Stone song, You Can’t Always Get What You Want.
