Anderson said Vikings officials will regroup next week to discuss how they can tweak the gameday process to make it more convenient for fans.
Needing a packhorse
Justin Ohm, a 31-year-old teacher from West St. Paul, was told at one gate that he couldn’t get into the Dome with his 35mm camera in a small camera bag, so he tried another gate. Security workers there said his camera would be allowed, but not the bag.
He and his father, Ron Ohm, 57, of New Ulm, spent 20 minutes wending their way through the crowd to check the bag. But then they were nearly turned away at another gate because of the camera before a security worker waved them through.
“It seems like overkill,” Ron Ohm said, noting the rule had been inconsistently enforced.
Sue Wilson, 57, of Rochester, wasn’t fazed. Wearing pocketless slacks, she toted her cellphone, keys and a cough drop in a plastic bag. “It doesn’t really bother me,” she said.
“As long as you have a packhorse,” interjected her husband, Dennis Wilson, 57, who carried her money and identification in his pockets.
