Additionally CamelBak-style bladder carriers must have no more than 2 main compartments and 1 small compartment. Any CamelBak- style water bladder that cannot be removed from the carrier and/or is opaque enough to prevent visual inspection, and any CamelBak-style bladder carriers larger than the permitted size will not be allowed into the venue.
Special Note About Prescription and OTC Medications
Prescription medication are allowed only in the original prescription bottle, any persons attempting to bring in prescription medication must have a government-issued photo identification card that matches the name printed on the prescription, and the pills in the bottle must match the description printed on the prescription. Further, if a person has mixed multiple pills in a single prescription container or if a person is attempting to enter with prescription pills in a non-prescription container, medical representatives should be involved to make the final determination about whether or not such pills are to be allowed in the venue.
Over-the-counter medications are allowed in provided that they are new and the original, factory- sealed container.
Special Note About Focus Light Beam Devices
Focus light beam devices of any kind or type, including laser pointers, are not allowed into MDBP events.
The MDBP Tour requires that security inside the venue be diligent in addressing focus light beam devices that may make it through the searches.
As allowed by local laws, it is requested that security remove or render useless the any focus light beam devices that make it into the venue; should local law prevent the confiscation of batteries and/or the devices themselves, it shall be at the sole discretion of security personnel, in accordance with typical venue policies, as to how focus light beam devices are addressed.
