This was my 3rd Blues equipment sale and it seems to get bigger and crazier every year. When the sale was announced initially, it said there would be limits on certain things but didn’t say what. I guessed helmets and gloves, as those are the biggest things people fight over.
A few days before the sale the Blues put out one helmet and one pair of gloves per person. Season ticket holders would get in at 11 and everyone else 12 pm.
I checked in with a few friends who were going. One was getting a hotel the night before and planned on getting there at about 5am. I planned on arriving at 7am.. I have an hour and a half drive so as I decided to leave I checked Facebook and saw posts of a few people in line. Some got there at 10pm the day before, others at midnight.
