    I am seeing this more and more at events - I work
    Im here and other places for work - so its a non issue for me.
    this is the most detailed sign of this type I have seen.

    As much as I'd like to 'like' that, I can't. :)

    they go thru every guests bag- and they pass thru a metal detector.

    I enter thru a different entrance- and they search my bag each and every time
    I have a smaller bag - with just light meters and they search it each time
    also they scan your laminate - and your photo shows up in the scanner.

    at the presidents gate where players enter- the metal detector is manned by TSA.
    there are drug , bomb and nuclear sniffers here too
    counter snipers - dogs and some full on swatt personel is here too.

    thats kind of par for the course for most of the events I have done in the past 3 years.

    If the TSA is managing the Presidents gate, does that mean the players have missing rackets and other gear after they get through the checkpoint?

    I would feel the complete opposite of safe with the TSA in charge of screening.

    That's pretty funny - it's TSA scanners and puffers but they are wearing tactical vests.
    Not sure what agency they are with but this I'd pretty common
    Players and credentials people get a cursory examinations everyone seek at that entrance gets the business

    They aren't with anyone exactly, they are just TSA, commissioned by Homeland security to task this service. TSA can be commissioned for any kind of "check" anywhere within our borders unfortunately. I say the latter given their track record with kids and disabled high risk "operatives" they encounter at airports all too often and how that's panned out. :frantic::nah_disagree:
