50000 tickets at at average of $300 each =$15,000,000
In order to insure that they control the majority (2/3rds) of tickets, this mythical scalping conglomerate need ten million dollars. TEN MILLION DOLLARS.
Next, you can only by four (4) tickets per credit card. That means they need 8334 credit cards to purchase them, entering each number individually.
Then, they have to buy them all on the first day. Let's call it January 15th.
Now, they have to sit on a TEN MILLION DOLLAR ($10,000,000) investment for the next 8 months. If they try to sell before August, people will not buy them.
Scalpers do not work at long term investments. They want to get a ticket & turn it around @ a profit in the shortest amount of time possible. As in hours. Not days. Not weeks. Not months. Not three-quarters of a year.
Some one that can drop that kind of cash and sit on it for 8 months.... is not a scalper. It's the guy in the $200,000 custom motor coach.

I dispute this. BLM doesn't tend to allow vending, unlike say National Parks, where there can be bidding on contracts. (But Curry Village is a far cry from what you're talking about.) It's been a while since I googled (was it "vending blm"?) but I think I found one place, in San Diego, or Imperial, or Riverside County. Even then, you had to take your mobile food preparation off site once every five days and clean it.
I pretty much think that the llc made virtue out of necessity on the no vending policy.
