I agree with Steve. I'd do without a goody bag if it meant better facilities, etc.
But, it's nice to get local stuff, not things that I can get anywhere.
the absolute best goodie "bag" was at Murphysboro, IL. It was an overflowing bushel basket that took two people to get back to our site!
The worst was at a competition that is sponsored by a radio station. They were giving out grocery bags at the cooks meeting and we all thought it would be full of cool stuff since radio stations get all sort of promo stuff. The only thing in the bag was our turn in boxes. And, they didn't have good facilities to make up for it :)
