Usually the gate is manned through the night.  If you do not get a response from the fest "committee", you may want to PM/e-mail Mr. Mike, W1RC.

We don't man the gate all night anynore.  It isn't really necessary for us to have some poor soul sitting there all night freezing their butt off just to keep an eye on the gate.  Hams are generally a pretty honest and trustworthy group. (However, there are exceptions).  Consequently, anyone arriving when the ticket sellers are not there do not need to wait until someone shows up and may enter the grounds upon their arrival.  However the "Honor System" is in effect; you are expected to take the initiative and go to buy a ticket and seller pass once the ticket sellers arrive on site which is about 0700 Saturday morning.

See you there.
