This will be my 30 year anniversary for attending the meet. That necessarily means I am 30 years older than when I started. it would improve the experience for us seniors if there were a place to sit down and rest. In the flea market, except for curbs and a few walls, there are few places to sit. A few food vendors have picnic tables, and I usually get food there and tell them that I am buying from them because I can sit down. On the show field there are no curbs or walls.
It would not be hard to require food vendors to have some seating. It might be more of a problem in the flea market, as they might need another space. Food vendors could be given priority when spaces turn over. On the show field, there is enough room where the food vendors set up to have some tables and chairs. I am sure the Hershey region has contracts with the food vendors, and this requirement could be added.
Without a chance to rest, I am not sure how much longer I can make Hershey a part of my life. It is a big part- when my daughter got married in October, she chose the date to avoid conflict with Hershey!
