I would think they would be available most of the day on Friday.. no set time, just drop in. You can email Mark Crawford whose email address is listed in the info.. he could probably tell you the exact times.

I've been wanting to go to the SE citrus expo but November is the busiest time for me at work so it is hard to find a good time to take off.  I'll let you guys know if I can actually make it down there.
