We hit the two weeks after final shot on July 4 - applied for the cards that day and just got them almost 3 weeks to the day after that. 

Looking forward to being at the game but will admit to some anxiety over being in a crowd again..won't be upset if the seats behind me are empty - the idea of someone breathing and screaming behind me isn't sitting that well right now.  Hopefully that will change over time...plan is to mask up everywhere but my seat.  Personally I have no issues wearing a mask at stores and in public.

Yahoo! So does the official tailgate party area outside the stadium open 90 minutes prior as well, or just the main gates?

Want to make sure we are there at the earliest possible second to take it all in.

There is no tailgate party outside the stadium this year. The band will be playing inside the stadium.

Due to no tailgate party and the extra check in points it provided I expect long lines to get into the IG Field.

We are supposed to have assigned gates to enter based on seat location. The team should start communicating that info to the fans so that things run as smoothly as possible.

Oh ok, thanks. I read about the "no tailgating" thing where the specify the parking lots but wasn't sure about the official one that the Bomber hold just outside the stadium. Definitely assumed that the band would play there given the logistics of set-up and take-down within the stadium. Thanks for clarifying.
