Please be advised we do not mail out confirmation of applications for our annual show.  Cheques are not cashed immediately but are often held in bulk.  We are all volunteers and as such we try to keep the workload down for the folks whose hard work make the show possible.
We do not use PayPal or any online payments.  We do personal cheques, cash or Postal Money Orders as payment for tables.

A good policy is to place your personal cheque at the bottom of your application form and make a Photocopy to keep and bring with you to the show.  That way you have proof you sent in your table application and payment for the show.

We get hundreds of applications for the 600 tables at the show so it is not practical for us to mail out confirmation letters.
Drive in Unloading is permitted on FRIDAY ONLY between 2PM and 6PM.
Carry in Unloading Friday 6PM to 9PM and Saturday 7AM to 8AM.
Once you check in at the registration desk and get your vendor envelope and determine in which building you are in and your table location you can either drive in and unload or carry your goods in.
Participant ribbons must be worn at all times by all Vendors and their helpers.
We shut down Friday at 6PM.   Overnight Security 6PM to 7AM Friday and Saturday.
Doors open for Vendors at 7AM Saturday and Sunday morning.
Vendors arriving on Saturday morning must hand carry all goods into the show.
The show opens to the public at 9AM Saturday and Sunday.
If you are happy with your table location at the show this year, there is an application for next years show in your vendor envelope, just fill it out and take it up to the ladies at the front desk with payment on Sunday and you are guaranteed the same table or tables at the 2021 March show.  They will issue you a receipt.  There is no table bumping allowed so you can only pre-pay the tables you have at this years show.  
All firearms have to secured in some manner to render them safe.  Trigger locks, cables or Zap Straps.  Handguns must be in a secure container on the table or cabled to the table.  CFO and staff are on site for handgun transfers.
As long as you mailed in your application along with payment you should not have any problem upon arrival at the show.
