Bag Search Guidelines

Private personnel will screen all bags entering the BR Site through public entries.

Screening Procedures

CSC security and Super Celebration personnel will use industry-standard screening techniques for bags, which include, but are not limited to visual inspections, handheld inspections, and removal of items from the interior of bags for further inspection. It shall be the right of CSC security and Super Celebration personnel to perform enhanced screening activities on any bags, including, but not limited to full emptying of any bags onto a search table for detailed inspection.

Any items that are wrapped inside of a bag may be unwrapped at the sole discretion of CSC security and Super Celebration personnel – anyone carrying wrapped items that refuse to have such items unwrapped will be denied entry onto the event surface and may be subject to further law enforcement inquiry.

CSC security personnel performing screening have the right to refer any suspicious bags and/or persons with bags to Super Celebration personnel for enhanced screening and/or inquiry. Furthermore, persons entering the Super Celebration Site that refuse to have their bags searched will be denied entry, regardless of the credential such persons may have, and will be immediately referred to Super Celebration personnel for additional inquiry.

Bag sizes are limited to not larger than twenty inches (20”) by fifteen inches (15”) by thirteen inches

(13”) – Bags larger than the aforementioned sizes will be denied entry. CamelBak-style water bladder systems will be allowed provided that the bladder has been emptied of water and the bladder has been removed from the pack – water bladders that are incapable of being removed from the pack for inspection will be denied entry.

Unmarked Bags at the Super Celebration Site

If an unattended bag is found on the Super Celebration Site and an owner cannot be located after a reasonable effort by Event Personnel, Event Dispatch will be immediately notified and Super Celebration personnel will be dispatched to investigate.
