When I used to attend Rodeo, I don't recall ever seeing anything posting the grounds. But I haven't been to the new arena; we left just as they were changing things.
Are the grounds posted? Can I carry in the arena and on the grounds?
Any help would be appreciated.
After a brief search I found that the rodeo will be held at least in part at the Freeman Coliseum, but there is nothing on their site that lists their policies about anything. I found that they adjoin the AT&T Center where the Spurs play, so there may be some events there as well, but I couldn't determine that for certain. AT&T Center has a much more informative web site than the Freeman Coliseum does, but there is no mention on their policies page of weapons of any kind being prohibited.
However, I found the following quote regarding security: "The AT&T Center wants to ensure that patrons have a fun and safe experience at the arena with AT&T Center staff/security personnel present for all events. Additionally, the AT&T Center has a state-of-the-art electronic security system which features closed circuit cameras and monitors, electric door alarms, access control systems and outdoor lighting. Small handbags/purses are allowed in the AT&T Center but will be inspected at all entrance gates. Large bags, coolers, briefcases, backpacks, and other items such as bottles, cans, food and other containers are prohibited and if confiscated will be discarded."
I hope this helps.
