      Actually we have one of the larger tents there, many of the class tents
      are 20x20 compared to our 20x30. We usually try to move folks around
      before the classes start so that there are 2-3 empty tables available.
      If that is not enough space for some of the larger classes, we can
      always have those classes scheduled elsewhere (something we've done in
      the past for various reasons).

      I believe that the gap will remain if we stay in the same spot. Not
      sure what might be available to cover the space.

      The main issue I noticed was crowding - not so much because of too many
      people, but just not having all four wall available for traffic as in
      our old spot.

      One thought I had was to move the "fence" that was by the road between
      us and security back towards the rear of the tent. That will make that
      corner of the tent more open to folks coming and going (and do a better
      job of keeping folks away from the trailer it was protecting).

      As one of the people who scheduled classes for Pennsic U, might I note that 1) the games tent for Pennsic 38 was a 20 x 30, the same size as the largest

        As one of the people who scheduled classes for Pennsic U, might I note that 1) the games tent for Pennsic 38 was a 20 x 30, the same size as the largest classroom tents in Pennsic U, and 2) there was no problem scheduling gaming classes into another tent besides the Games tent.  We had been specifically requested to put all the games classes into the games tent, as they were scheduled through this list, but if anyone wanted to schedule a class in a regular tent, not the games tent, all they had to do was ask.
