Dear prospective attendant,
I hope you’re excited to see perhaps the strongest champion of freedom alive speak at the home of the Free Speech Movement! As a reminder, Congressman Ron Paul’s talk is scheduled for Thursday, April 5th at 7 PM in Zellerbach Auditorium at the University of California, Berkeley. Here are a few important details about the event to ensure that we accommodate as many people as possible in an orderly manner:
This is a high-demand event, so we encourage you to arrive early to secure your desired seat— especially if you are on the waitlist. Two lines will be begin to form at 4, one for attendants with early seating vouchers and one for those who are waitlisted. There will be Students for Liberty members with signs indicating each line available to answer questions. We will also have members passing out fliers, handing out literature, and answering questions to keep you entertained while waiting.
The doors will open at 6, at which time attendants with early seating vouchers will be admitted. We will be checking the IDs of attendants with vouchers to ensure that there are no duplicate tickets. At 6:30, if there is any space left, people on the waitlist line will be admitted. We’ve given away early seating vouchers for every seat in the auditorium, so it is unfortuantely very unlikely that many people on the waitlist will be admitted. To improve your chances, we encourage all waitlisted prospective attendants to arrive as close to 4 PM as possible.
Inside the auditorium, we ask attendants to move as close to the center of their aisle as possible and refrain from leaving any empty seats between yourself and strangers. To ensure that everyone will have a clear view of Congressman Paul, we will not be allowing signs.
DIRECTIONS, TRAVELING, AND PARKING:
Zellerbach Auditorium is located in Lower Sproul Plaza near the intersection of Bancroft & Telegraph. Because there will be several other events occurring simultaneously on campus with expected high attendances, we encourage everyone to either walk or take public transportation. However, if you must drive, you can visit this webpage for information about the nearest parking lots to the auditorium:http://calperformances.org/visit/parking/

Students for Liberty will periodically answer questions until 4 PM on Thursday. If you have any questions immediately before or during the event, please feel free to approach any Students for Liberty member wearing the club’s black t-shirt. We want to ensure that everyone is comfortable, engaged, and excited to see Dr. Paul!
See you tomorrow,
Students for Liberty
