Thanks Drew. My brother and I are on the waitlist as of noon today.
Unfortunately, it is what it is, and I have learned my lesson, but it is my guess that in the future this event will either sell out in 20 minutes next year, or the capacity will expand to make it not as pleasant of an experience.
From here on out, it is my guess that there will be the fight between capacity and intimacy (or lack thereof). I hope it not to ever be like GABF. Maybe it becomes a regional model.
At any rate, I am looking forward to volunteering to help at the first round competition.
