I can't remember which product release it was, but we had a similar situation happen at my store.
We had our allotted amount + 10 extra people in line when we left the day before. It was raining. We handed out tickets early at the request of our GM so that these folks didn't have to wait in the rain. In addition to that, like Nckhammond mentioned, we put a note out for anyone who showed up. The entire point is: If they had enough people in line already to take up the entire stock, there was no point in forcing folks to line up in the rain and get soaked. I took a picture of the line to validate the distribution, and to allow customers who showed up late that while we handed out tickets early they would have walked away empty handed either way. I guess in hindsight, it didn't matter that it was raining, either way this would eat up people's time if we required to make them wait all night and we would still have the same number of individuals that are in the "runner up" category leaving empty handed.
