then enter the venue.
Guest arrival check list
As the guests arrive, park their cars, and enter the venue, security personnel will be standing at
the entrance checking the passes and checking the necessary form of Id’s and then letting the
guests in. Once the guests arrive in the venue, a booth will be set up inside the site where they
can collect the fake money to gamble by presenting the passes at the booth. They can start
playing after that.
These are the initial stages of planning, and every aspect is being updated.
