I agree that registration is restrictive, but maybe they don't expect many non-pre-registered AS'ers. I don't understand why they don't register folks in the morning. Registration starting on Monday June 26th is from 1-4pm (if you're not pre-registered). According to the wbcci online calendar, parking is from 8-4 each day for those pre-registered. If you're not pre-registered, they'll probably put you in the "bullpen", a place to park inside the gates until registration opens up. I can see this area could get quite crowded if a lot of folks show up at one time that are not pre-registered. There is no waiting outside the gates unless you are before 8am or after 4pm.
