That's just it. Lot of folks have to travel a great distance to show stuff then work Monday morning. I can't blame them for leaving in time to get back early enough to get a good nights sleep.
This topic comes up from time to time. If I were showing something and I was to be penalized because I needed to leave early I just wouldn't show. Fact is, get me mad enough and I'd take whatever I was showing and destroy it before I got rid of it. I'm willing to do the work and pay for a restoration. I'm willing at my expense to share my whatever. And you are going to dictate when I can leave, threaten me or penalize me? I'd take a super rare tractor to the crusher. I figure if you can't see that I have a life other than an old tractor, you know, a family, a job, maybe a farm or business that supports and pays me some I can do things like shows then I don't need to share anything with you. Now you want the local club to start paying me to be there and I'll stay the required hours. But then expect them to raise the cost of admission to cover paying me.
Sorry for the rant.

You have a good point here Rick.
I made three round trips hauling tractors to our local show this year.
And three round trips to get them back home.
I had to touch up paint on two of them from the kids climbing on them.
I don't mind the kids climbing on mine, they are free to do so, but
it is an added expense that I don't "have" to put myself through.
Our show runs Friday through Sunday. I take my tractors down
Thursday night and don't leave until Sunday afternoon, but I do
have to work on Monday so it gets to be a long weekend!
Most of the vendors are gone way before I am and I'm not
making any money off this, in fact, I'm spending quite a bit!
Of course that's my choice, but I would choose otherwise if
I was told what hours I had to be there and on what days.
