Saturday 9:00 am Limited Drawings Team-Up

(1/2) > >>

friedminded:
I'm strongly considering going for a limited autograph drawing at 9:00 am on Saturday. Would anyone be interested in teaming up?

The idea is that we help our teammates by waiting in line with them after we draw our own winning tickets to maximize the odds of everyone getting what they want. And even if things don't turn out perfectly, we at least will have met some new people and had guards for our stuff when we ran off to the restrooms. ;)

Here's what's available on Saturday at 9:00 am:

This is my first time doing any kind of team-up like this, so if anyone has advice about where/how to meet up, how best to coordinate once inside, etc., feel free to chime in.

Are you looking for a team up as a line buddy?

I'm not sure how a team
Up will help for the raffles.
When you enter the raffle area, you choose the raffle you want to pick.
Win or lose, you leave the area and then go to the back of the line.
Which will be long.  mostly likely you won't get another chance to get through the line again. A team up would only help if the people with you have no desire for any of the autographs and they can just pick a raffle ticket for you.
Now, it does happen that you might get a second chance if you are early enough but it's long odds.

If I misunderstood, please ignore my post and let me know.

I believe the volunteers also put a wristband on you as soon as you win so you can't go back in line to try again anyways.

Mel:
In my experience, only WB does wristband which you can not get off and trade or give to someone. All the others you just get a ticket you need to have when you come back for the actual signing. That could always change though.

But you are only going to the end of the line for the individual raffle, not all the way back out to the marina where the massive "Everything Else" line ends, so it wouldn't be that bad.... right? Maybe I'm underestimating the potential length of each line.

If I do go through with this, I would want to line up super early. Early like I-want-a-seat-in-B20 early. The way I see it, if we're going to do this, might as well go all-in and not do a half-a$$ed job. I would hope that would help provide more than one opportunity to draw a ticket.

This I have not heard about before and would be problematic. I hope someone else who knows for sure can clarify.
