b. Label all of your serving containers and utensils! All of your dishes and utensils must have your name on them, including covers!

a. No. Bringing your own plates is NOT permitted. Reusable plates & utensils will be provided.

12. How do I check in?
a. The line to check in will start on the back side of the Dome near the kitchen because of food drop-off. This will help the line flow more efficiently and make dropping off food easier.
b. Blue tokens will be distributed at registration, for the first time you go through the food line.
c. If you pre-paid, you need to know the name of the person who your group is registered under when you check in. We can only look up payments by the name of the person who paid.
