I can haul the missus over if you're behaving.

Hey, silly question: I've always used a Frothers badge to get into Salute, but now I have a ticket. Do I have to stand in line (as I assume), or is that for people with no ticket (as I hope)?

Oh dear :D Might be smart coming in a bit later then? Or earlier? It's a quick trip as we're staying at Stratford...

I found that if you arrive at say 11.15, you can pretty much stroll in, without having to deal with... Wargamers...

Quite.
I've never seen the point of the Queuebuster ticket for Salute. I'm normally there putting on a game, so never paid to get in, but whenever I've looked there always seems to be a fucking massive queue of queuebusters. But half an hour after the show opens there's no queue! Be it queuebusters or ordinary punters. Save yourself the money, and save yourself having to queue with the queuebusters (an irony I am sure is lost on them), and go and have an (overpriced) breakfast baguette at one of the food retailers and then just stroll in.

The advance ticket just saves you some ££'s. After being in that queue pictured above last year, you'll probably find me at one of the coffee shops nearby waiting for the scrum to go down. Unfortunately this'll probably cost me the ££'s I saved by buying an advance ticket (and even a bit more!).
