Today was the day! I drove out to Puyallup and dropped off the clock. The stand and clock fit very nicely in the car and had tons of room. Upon arriving at the fair grounds and finding the appropriate area to drop off, I was greeted by one of the volunteers. After some confusion about size maximums (item must not be more than 80 inches over all, width + length) I got everything out of the car and began setting up. Thankfully there were plenty of people on hand to settle the dimension confusion and work out a good place to display my clock so that once it was all together, it would not be moved until after the fair closes and I come pick it up. The gentleman that was to set up all the displays was on hand and helped me to get it into position where it would stay. As I was moving the clock to it’s area, many options for protecting the clock were being tossed around, this definitely helped to put me a little more at ease with it’s being at the fair now. It will be interesting seeing what they come up with because even a custom Plexiglas enclosure was being tossed about as an option. Certainly set my mind at ease.
Now to wait for opening day of the fair… oh the agony! :o)
