I was pretty chilly until 10, then the beer did the warming. The propane heaters helped too.
I showed up at 6:15 and ended up #134. Last year I was #128 at 6:30 and the year before (when they switched to 2 tickets per person) I was #115 at just after 6:30. That year there were still a few spots open as late as 11:30 due to confusion over the length of the line. Of course five years ago we were around 40th in line at around 8:30 and we thought that was crazy.
