This being our first event, I'm reading everything I can possibly find on past events, how they work, best things to do, etc.... My daughter seems to think we have to stay at the event from the time it opens until it closes. I told her we have to leave for lunch. I've read other people leave for lunch, so it must be ok. Lol. She's very shy, so I don't see her trading with other people very much. I think I read there is a big room with tables where people trade. She doesn't have hundreds of pins, but you never know, maybe she'll surprise me. Should we be there the whole time? What shouldn't we miss according to the schedule? I've also read in different places, and can't remember where, that some people at the pin event may also go to MNSSHP on Friday night. If we left early would we miss something at the pin event close for that night? We leave the day of the next MNSSHP. I would of planned accordingly, but who knew it would be in August? Hoping my questions don't sound silly. I know I can actually leave the pin event whenever I want, I just don't want my daughter to miss anything important. Thanks for reading!
