53rd Annual Cayucos Gem & Mineral Show - Day Three

Today was officially the second day of the 53rd Annual Cayucos Gem & Mineral Show hosted by the SLOGMC and held at the Cayucos Vets Hall next to the Cayucos Pier. However,  in the context of the set-up day being part of the deal as always it was effectively the third day of the show. Unlike yesterday, this day went reasonably smoothly although it was a much slower day for the show. Overall, however, most of the dealers were happy with the show in general. I worked my posterior off doing security, public relations with not only the public but our vendors and club members as well as overseeing our banners and sandwich signs. I helped dealers load up at the end of the show as well as loaded up the Showcase Displays booth and then helped the club break down the show infrastructure and then packed home all the tables and sandwich signs and about half the banners. Whew!
