Re: State Fair - Again

Went to the fair this morning and had no issues whatsoever. Got in the line to get wanded and told the lady I had an LTC and she directed me to the officer on duty. Took a look at my license and waved me through without looking through my backpack. I also decided to go ahead and bring my knife. Doesn't make sense that I can bring a gun but can't bring my knife. Anyway beautiful weather today to be at the fair.

Re: State Fair - Again

When I went last year I did not bring my pocket knife like I normally do daily because of what I read in the Fair's FAQ. When I arrived and declared my LTC to the woman at the gate I was directed to an officer who, after checking my license, waved me through. Thought about bringing my knife this time based on my experience from last year but now you guys have me second guessing that. I guess I could carry my pocket knife on the same side as my gun (normally carry on the opposite side) which would defeat a metal detector wand...

So I had a couple of questions. I'm planning on going tomorrow morning and donating some canned goods to get in with a discount ($4 admission when you bring 4 cans of food). I was thinking about catching the rail there so I won't have to deal with parking (and continuing my cheapskate theme by donating the canned goods.. but hey it's for a good cause!) and was thinking about bringing them in my backpack along with a metal water thermos (I like keeping my water cold) and I couldn't find anything in the Fair's website saying I couldn't do so. I says that personal food and beverages are allowed but doesn't say anything specifically about backpacks or metal thermoses.

Since I'll be taking the rail it won't be like I can simply leave it in my vehicle. Any ideas on this?
