Bonanza prep work starts well in advance of the show! All the boxes reposing in this JB teammate’s living room were loaded for their new home at Canterbury Park!

Marking booth spaces takes two days. Here’s our camera-shy, Day 1 taping crew — Eydie, Lauri and Jennifer — at about 7:30PM Monday evening, shortly before they wrapped up their handiwork in the Expo!  Next: on to the Main and Side buildings!

A 12-foot piece of trim molding AKA measuring stick, chalk and Eydie’s new, 300-foot measuring tape, are the tools of their trade!

Krista Belle’s handiwork — it takes a lot of trees to prime the JB pump and she uses as little paper as possible!

Our early set-up vendors arrived in a rainstorm and patiently waited until it was time for check-in…
