The individual will have no recourse should something happen to you or they lose the paper ticket if their name isn't listed.

No! If you do not you can present your bar code on your phone

Paper ticket , electronic ticket, or identification that matches the name on the purchased ticket.

Identification is required for those who look under 16 or do not have your a paper ticket or a way to electronically check in and said identification must match the name on the ticket.

The name on the registration/ticket doesn't match the attendee. Is that okay?

Tickets should match your identification so we can verify the age of each attendee and purchaser if ticket is lost or you are not able to check in electronically.
