Blood Drive
« on: August 27, 2017, 02:06:16 PM »
I have heard there is a blood drive and I wanted to partake.  Where is it and is there usually a wait?  I thought if I got in early, before i checked in, I would be able to waste some time since Ill be in town early.

On the website it says it is being held in the Hyatt this year on the Conference Level...I'm not sure which level specifically it is but I think it is at least one below the main lobby level :)

It used to be in the Marriott and I knew where it was then XD

Depending on how early you are talking about getting in..., the Blood Drive might not even be open yet.
I think it carries the same hours as the convention.

Also, Vay is  pretty much correct about the location, its one of the 2 bottom floors of the Hyatt International tower.
If you can see the parking garage, you're on the right level.

Is there a place to find the hours? I was thinking about rolling in around 1pm on Thursday.  Sorry- I am a total noob

Thursday is apparently 11AM to 8PM
So, looks like you'll be good.
