The big change this year was a new feature to our software to help with helping TAB buyers to pick up their items. We added a third credit card machine and processed seller payouts and TAB pickups right at the computer station. This saved buyers and sellers from traipsing all the way across the room to pay or pickup their money.
After the convention we received a thank-you from “Second Helpings”. See the note here.
