Seeing that Eastview HS won't be around this year to take charge of these things, I suppose I can give some insight on how we did these things in the past.
The scioly table should be easy. All you have to do is make a really big sign that says scioly.org on it and put it up near your table. Also, remember tape! That way you can hoist it nice and high (preferably painter's tape, rather than duct tape to avoid leaving nasty residue on other people's buildings). Someone should stick around the table to actually greet other scioly people; don't just leave the sign there in hopes that two random scioly people will bump into each other at the sign.
The fundamental problem with a scioly.org table (as we discovered last year) is that it's much more fun to walk around at the swap meet than to stay in one place in the hopes of meeting someone. In the crowded chaos of the swap meet, it was very difficult for people to find the scioly.org table, since there was no absolute predetermined location of the table (and anyway, it's impossible to set a predetermined location since nobody knows in advance exactly where they will end up setting up). At the times when a scioly.org person did manage to find the table, it was unlikely that other scioly person(s) were there at the same time, and thus nobody really stuck around. This is understandable, since it's easy to get caught up in all the excitement and not want to stay in one place for the whole time. Therefore, I think that the most effective way for us to meet each other would be to set a fixed location and fixed time to meet everyone else. This location must be easy-to-find, and the time must be convenient for all. May I suggest that all persons wishing to meet other persons from scioly.org meet at 9:15 p.m. on 5/18 right inside the main entrance of UCF Arena. Sound okay to everyone?
