I hear you about the weather and the timing ...  we took a few factors into
account, including the museum schedule, other VCF shows (East in
particular), and the Super Bowl ...  yes, we didn't want to draw traffic
away from them. ;-0

This is the first year so we're going to try it out and learn.  After the
show I plan on doing a post mortem to see what to improve for next year.
And of course, we learn from every show we do.  (VCF West will be our next
big learning opportunity.)
