Speaking of SFD, I was thinking of doing something but am concerned 
about available time and resources and finding helpers.

Like many regional areas we have a Field Day which is like what city 
folk call an Expo except it has lots of tractors and has a touch of 
country fair thrown in.

Ours happens to be in September (about a week after SFD) and goes for 2 
days and practically everyone and their kids go there. There are 
education exhibits, telcos and ISPs, govt depts etc.

Anyone have suggestions to how I might approach something like that with 
limited peaople and budget but still manage to impress?
