Meals are planned according to the dietary restrictions people gave in their registration. If you have not requested a vegetarian meal please do not eat the food labeled as such. In the past, people who chose the vegetarian option were left with very little to eat. Please be mindful of this when serving yourself in the buffet line.
Tickets for meals that were purchased in addition to your ticket price are required. You must present your meal ticket to receive a plate. Please only use one plate, as we are charged by the plate. If you go back for seconds, use the same plate.
