    I learned that my partnership company better incorporate. Too many ways to get sued. I learned that we better hold off on crowd-funding until we see what Washington decides on. It was well worth the time spent. Thanks to the speaker.

      Charles, I can confirm you are on our master guest list. The simplest thing would be to join and pay for HOP online. Print off the receipt and show it at our check in staff.

    Not sure I was signed up properly on the website. Also, I have a free ticket. Can I bring my son Tim Hackett with this ticket? Please let me know, as he would need to be added at the gate too. Thanks.

      Mary. We've contacted CBS security and unfortunately they won't make any amendments to our guest list. That's why we're so strict about the 10:00pm deadline. Sorry.

      I registered requesting to us a free pass I have, but I see hand written on the back is "expires Mar. 30th". Can you still honor it?
