Good job there. I applaude your passion. I make Q and have people tell me I should be selling it. And I still cannot see myself going to competitions. I just don't think I'm worthy yet.
And on the Vending part of it. You mentioned the kids and the spouses really had a good time. What if they did the vending portion of it? You guys could offer some guidance and oversight and let the makers be the takers for a portion of the profit. If they understand that they are doing it for the next trip and they get a little extra... they might have even more fun. Then you guys could concentrate on the competition cooking.
Anyways, congratulations and good luck on next year.
