I'm not sure if you have had a layout at a show -- BUT
Please don't touch
Do NOT touch
Keep your hands off
Don't you understand English
Dang it, do we have to call the cops
....and these comments are addressed to the adults -- this is what we are
talking about. Little kids point, and sometimes they overshoot -- and you
get a few cars dumped over. It is a pain to set them back up in a working
show, but that is not our main complaint. It is the adult who thinks they
are a hot ticket and can do anything they want that cause 95% of the
problems. Adults who have a large liquid soppy drink while holding the cup
at arms length and over the layout. Wet liquid dumped on the layout is not
just causing a little problem. They cause serious damage -- and as soon as
it happens they take off. I have never seen one ask if they can pay for
their EXPENSIVE damage. Believe me that is not what the exhibitioner is
