At the spring WBF in Raleigh, three of us from Greensboro made the drive w/o tickets and were able to procure three in short fashion. It was quite painless. We worked the line for 10 minutes or so. Each ticket was purchased from a different individual and all at face value. Durham may be a tougher ticket.
I waited too late to get my ticket for Durham this year and used a Highland Imperial Gaelic as leverage to obtain one.
