No endorsing other readers outside your own booth. (we’ve had complaints)

If you are approached about a problem by a patron do not tell us yourself send them to the fair manager (we cannot do anything on a he said she said basis due to conflict of interest on your part or try to fix it after the fact)

Please do not use the young staff to watch your booth for longer than a trip to the bathroom or getting something to eat. Their job is to make sure your booth is secure not work it.

If you bring children with you they must stay in your booth at all times unless they are accompanied by an adult outside your booth.
