Wednesday is for Press.
I believe Tuesday is for Publishers.
Which leaves Monday as set-up day.

So Melissa is there to provide the refreshments to all those hard-working publishers setting up their stands - a picnic of Vegemite sandwiches and Agri-Cola.

Hey, I'm not setting up my stand until Wednesday - I hope I don't miss out on the Vegemite and Agri-cola!

Cheers,

Is vegemite better or worse than Marmite? If you say worse, then I will actually shed a tear for anyone who eats it.

Marmite is wonderful. Vegemite is what you might eat if there's no Marmite to be had.

Try living in the town they make the God-awful stuff and you'll understand why there is no way I can concur with this statement.

Actually Monday-Wednesday are for set-up. Wednesday is also for the press, but as that takes place upstairs does it not disturb the busy workers.

As second-hand dealers doesn't waste space (and money) on decorations, but simply stack their games along all sides and as high as they can reach, these will be done already Monday, which means that everyone with access to the halls will do their shopping for rare items during the first days of the week.

Most will actually wait until Wednesday to set up, as they have better things to do than waiting around for a couple of days!

Good to see these highbrow discussions cropping up on a regular basis
A previous thread even warranted a poll.

Vegemite is very bad for you, for if you try to chew it it'll probably break your teeth due to extreme hardness.

Oh, and your tongue will probably turn bright orange or yellow

Essen?

Really?

You probably should have told someone you were going rather than just showing up unannounced.
