However, if reservations are made early, it may be possible on a very limited basis to accommodate space for additional immediately adjoining tables. Also, if you have two persons attending, it is recommended that you reserve at least two tables to allow for more comfortable seating space. Any tables unreserved by the show dates may be made available for drop-in dealers at the standard table fee. However, tables may not be reserved for the purposes of advertisement only.
