Hindsight being 20-20 I agree it would have been helpful if the cadets at
the gate had a stack of printouts of the swap-meet aerial view with rooms
pointed out to give to people entering.

I 2nd the sentiment that it could have been spread out more.  I saw a
comment that it could have been packed tighter, but in my opinion there
wasn't enough room to maneuver in the main room where Jeff was.
