Yeah, I always have gotten my ID Thursday before the event. There's long lines most of the time, but you can sometimes find a down time. It says 10am on the schedule for when we are allowed to start walking fields, but I'm sure you can get there whenever. Some dealers are ready to go Thursday, but many are still setting up.
