Hold for DNCC Dais Seating

I went off in search of a way of getting “on the floor” after being told, this morning when I picked up my credentials, that I could enter a lottery to do so, and then being told in the Press Filing Room that I could get a 30 minute pass without entering a lottery. They sent me off to the 4th floor, section 3/4, to a special desk set up for this purpose.

What I found when I got there was this sign: “Hold for DNCC Dais Seating.” I have no idea what this means. However there was a line of about 30 desperate looking journalists in front of it, so I decided to try again another day.
