The Rio Vista Pavilion, where we did the show. That's Lisa helping put up one of the banners on the outside. You had to cross a small plaza from the main hotel building to get to the Pavilion.
Lisa's companion, Kuma Bear, guards the announcer's microphone during set-up.

Carole Parker and Christine Hay listen to host Kevin Standlee heckle their answers.
The lovely and talented production assistant Sharon Sbarsky handed out copies of Emerald City and other Lovely Parting Gifts and contestant prize packages and kept the show flowing along.
Thank you all for coming! We hope you enjoyed the show!
Unfortunately, not all of the contestant photos were usable, nor were those of announcer David Gallaher and Crack Technical/Sound Operator Lisa Hayes. (Light conditions were low, and we were not using flash because it washes things out.)
I had a great time, and hope I get to do it again under such great stage conditions and with such a good team. Thanks to everyone who participated and watched the show!
