Dorothy...putting my 2 cents in here.... Carolyn Schaffner made great signs
for our show tables that say "please - no foliage fondling".  I love it... so
much more friendly than "DON'T TOUCH".  Rich Randall made stantions (sp?) for
his show with PVC pipe that is fit into a square of wood - with ribbon draped
in between.  Thought that was a cool idea.

Also...you need to have your schmoozers working the crowd at ALL TIMES...
even when judging is in progress - let them choose a victim ... er... SUBJECT
- and explain what the judges are doing and why.

And on the coffee issue.... definately brewed - with espresso or chickory
mixed in... and enjoyed 'neat'.

Just flew in from Florida... and boy are my arms tired....
