Folks will be able to select their tables from the set table layout (some tables are pre-blocked), in the order they pay for them. So signing up early, then being approved and paying early means you choose your tables early. We may have to adjust the layout, but will do our best not to. Choosing tables for Summer and also booking Fall will mean you should also get that space in the Fall (barring any reason we need to reconfigure the layout).
