I did go to the Bay.
First tip, ignore the "waiting line" outside that wraps all down the building. Go to main entrance, take escalator up or down, walk to the elevators and press the appropriate button to get you to the main floor. Perhaps they'll close this "loophole" entrance eventually, but it works for now. I wasn't the only one who did it, and the only reason I knew about it was because that's what workers were telling people "on the wrong side of the barrier" when I was in the store this past weekend.
Secondly, I did get lanyards with a plastic sleeve the right size for the tickets!!! Jlousa is correct, but I was as well
. They had quite a few today, but seemed to be selling fast. Folks were pushing around me to get to them, and I heard a couple of people commenting to each other that they also had been looking for them for a while.
They were on the very shelves I had looked at several times in the past few weeks. A worker there said they had been out of them for a time. I just wish they had mentioned that they existed and would be getting them in when I had asked previously. Oh, well, no biggie. I kinda like my home project a bit better; but may use the official one anyhow. The one advantage it does have is not having to un-clip the holder part to pull your ticket out.
