BJC Nearing Capacity At 9 a.m.

As we near the final four hours of THON weekend, more and more spectators are making their way into the BJC. Sections are starting to fill up in both the upper and lower bowl, and portals have begun to close.

We asked three Rules and Regulations Security Leaders about the capacity of the BJC this morning and got three extremely unhelpful answers: a condescending “I can’t tell you that”; following that, a lie of “I don’t know”; and finally, trailing that was an “I’m not sure,” interrupted by, “Denise, don’t tell them anything.”

Finally, on the fourth try, we got a semi-helpful semi-answer: “I’m not sure, but I know it’s getting close.”

BINGO! THON spectators, get your dancing feet up to the BJC ASAP. The BJC has hit capacity for good around 7 a.m. or 8 a.m. historically, but for THON 2014 the doors closed for good a few hours later than that, closer to noon.

It does feel like there are fewer people flocking to THON than in previous years, but to be safe, I’d recommend getting here as soon as you can.
