    bisonp, the ADA platforms you're mentioning are portable, and are set to accommodate specific events. I think the only portable ADA platform for Bison football is the one in the north end zone seating.
    You have it backwards. Last year, the NE and SW corners were done.
    Hail the BISON!!!

    Yep, had them mixed around. Was too worried about putting NE and SE together or something.

    Thanks for digging those up and clarifying that. I still think the new platforms jut out further than they need to though.

    Went to the Avenged Sevenfold show last night. The metal detectors were there, but not used. They had hand held wands and others got the traditional pat down.

    Strange, I have two friends that went and they said they had to go through the metal detectors. They also said that they funneled everyone through just one on the east side.

    Does anyone know do they allow smoking still and have them come back through metal detectors from outside or do they not allow it now?

    You guys do realize the only reason the dome purchased the metal detectors is because many national shows and bands are now requiring facilities to have metal detectors in order to book them. So if the dome still wants to attract these sort of shows, they had to put in the metal detectors.

    Sobolik said the dome has an obligation to ensure the security of events for the public, employees and entertainers. "Some promoters out there are requiring it for certain concerts or types of events," he said.
    "It's probably one of the unfortunate ways of the world" that the entertainment business now needs "some sort of enhanced detection" for people to go through before entering a venue, he said.
    I bet they have a laundry list of things they would rather spend $150K on but it is what it is...

    Still have designated smoking areas, don’t think there’s a walkthrough detector there. Possibly get wanded? Not sure on protocol, but yes, you can go out and smoke AFAIK

    Thanks I was wondering. I think up north at the Alerus they don't allow them to go smoke outside. I was hoping they would not allow it as you get a SW or NE wind and the smoke rolls right across my eyes and burns.
