4) Bag Check (behind section 110): Tear off the bag check tab off your bib and give it the person at the bag check table along with your bag (bags will be provided if you don't have one). The tab has your bib number on it, so that is how we will identify your bag when you return. Please use the bag you receive at Bib Pickup!

5) Box Office (behind section 140): Redeem the game voucher (included on your bib) & hand it to the box office to redeem for a ticket to any 2018-19 regular season game.
