Usually you will know in advance if they won't have power. Most include that in thier packets of information. Some provide power free, some charge a small additional cost for 15/20/30 amp service. There are very few that dont have something available. I say try the knife and slicer at home and see which you like the best. The Granton Slicer works just as sawdustguy says.... like butta. I just happen to usually be starting with a carryover buzz after cooking, drinking and BSing all night at the contest. I suck at making consistant slices, so I use the slicer. At home, I actually use same henkel pictured! You can pick up decent ones at just about any restaraunt supply store ( like RJ's in Kansas City) for $50 or less.
