You guys could have your own swap meet maybe- then you'd also have greater knowledge about who was bringing what, too.

You get crappy state-themed merchandise (license plates are popular) and trade the it for other states' merchandise.

Wow, lisence plates? We have this awesome coach helper guy for the B division team that told us that when he went to nationals, his team traded little tubes filled with oil from the first oil well in the US, which was in PA. At least I think that's what he said. lol

I got a Kentucky and Hawaii one last year! I was so happy, then I got home, threw them in my basement and never looked at them again. Remember: only get things you absolutely love there, because once you get home, it'll be 10x less cool.

I wear the AP Calc shirt I got at nats once a week.

Last year I had to hijack the B team from Maine's table to swap my stuff, hopefully if we get a chance to go this year, we'll get our own table.

It is, unfortunately us event supervisors don't get to partake in the fun because we are tied up in the coaches' meeting at the same time.
