WISCOPEX '97 - Join Us!

WFSC Table

Wear your WFSC logo button, show it to the staff at the society table and receive a gift from the WFSC.

Bring your club publicity fliers (club meeting information, show fliers,' etc.). Place them on the society table for distributions to all show visitors.

Get your club's light switched on within the WFSC map to indicate your club is represented at the show.

While at the table, offer part of your time during the weekend to relieve the staff now and then or to help out in some other manner.
