    That's how I'm reading it - stay out of the vendors way but free to wander. I wonder what area is 'restricted'? Just have to wait to see the e-mail and the map I reckon.

    Hi Floats,

    Walking through the grounds and among outdoor exhibit areas is still permitted. Sunday a wristband will be required. We also want everyone to be aware of the amount of traffic in terms of semis, forklifts, etc. that will be moving about.

    Thanks!

    Hi Sam,

    Thanks for the confirmation. Nothing on my TCAS as yet, will check the traffic, uniform whiskey whiskey.

    The "Restricted Area" is sizeable and highlighted on this map. The plane parking areas are available, but not the FlyMarket.

    Now the waters are really muddied by that yellow restricted area map. It appears to be totally inconsistent with what Sam Oleson just confirmed to me about being permitted to walk the grounds and the outdoor exhibit areas.

    Sam, now I'm confused, please clarify. Thanks.

    We're being repressed!

    Cue the Monty Python reference:

    Hi Floats,

    I'm checking in with our security folks to clarify on this matter. I'll get back to you ASAP.

    Thanks.

    I've received more clarification from our Director of Communications about the new policy and map. Pedestrians will still be allowed to walk through what's labeled as the "restricted area." Vehicles with proper credentials will be allowed to travel on Knapp St. Caution is advised when walking through the "restricted" area simply because of the amount of set-up going on.

    Thanks a million Sam - this comes as a relief to those of us on site early.
