Do you have a table at Central States? Are you a show sponsor? If not, maybe reconsider?
I have a table but I'm not a sponsor. In reviewing the show schedule, I see that sponsors can enter the bourse at 8 AM on Thursday, Friday and Saturday. Other table holders have to wait until 9 AM.
Although I don't like this arrangement, I respect the CSNS's Board's right to run the show however they see fit. So I figured I'd check out the list of sponsors to see if it might be worth paying the extra fee to do business for an extra hour a day with other sponsors. If you're in a similar position - a table holder who has not paid extra to be a show sponsor - you might want to do as I just did and check out the list of other sponsors here: https://www.centralstatesnumismaticsociety.org/sponsors
