This was a huge source of contention between me and my ex. My parents were in the same district as us; I always thought it would be nice to sit together especially when I had two daughters in one year. My ex rufused to sit with my parents if they saved us seats and he would never allow me to save two seats for them. If you were not in ones immediate household or in the car to the convention you were out of luck.
Is this stupid policy still in effect?
