THON Reaches Capacity Saturday Night

Despite not reaching capacity at all for THON 2015, THON tweeted that the Bryce Jordan Center has officially reached its capacity, and as a result, no more spectators will be allowed in until more leave.

According to the THON website, the procedure for getting into the BJC requires spectators to wait in a digital line, the order of which is determined by the number on the coded bracelet THON gives each spectator upon attempting entry. Though people may exit at any given time, callbacks will only be made once an hour on the hour.

Once a spectator’s number is called, that spectator has a window of 45 minutes to return to the BJC and enter. If the spectator tries to enter after the 45 minutes is up, they will be denied entry, and given a new bracelet with a new number, starting their wait all over again. The list of numbers can be found here.

While the BJC reaching capacity is unfortunate for those looking to get in later, the current capacity status will not likely hold, as many THON-goers will probably look to go home and refuel before the final stretch of the weekend.
