We added a fourth credit card machine and processed seller payouts and TAB pickups right at the computer station, like last year. This saved buyers and sellers from traipsing all the way across the room to pay or pickup their money.

In addition we added some wireless bar-code scanners and two laptop/tablet computers that were used to check out TAB buyers.
