Richmond Convention Center Rules.
No outside food was allowed in the RCC.........but some years they have allowed food inside.  Odd.
Coolers were not permitted in the RCC at all......but they let us to do that some years also.  Real odd.
Normally:  Unattended coolers could not be left outside the RCC and folding chairs could not be taken into the facility.
There were lots of security people, and, as the kids will say, they're "Nazis".
