Hopefully the tables in the center can be used for venders or teams next time. They kinda just sat there.
Prizes should be anounced early to get more guys into the competition (this comes down to us venders as well, donating them early)
Take payment from us venders early for confirmation and to use to pay for stuff you need, like a work party the night before
Consider contacting other companies for sponsorship and prizes, Subway, McDonalds, Timmies, music stores, etc.
As you suggested, invite the local Armouries for recruiting.
Depending on feedback for the spring, consider a two day event.
Would be great to hear back from those who attended what was expected of the venders and how we measured up to that.
