Default Compression test @ the fest?

Hey guys,

I was wondering if anyone at the fest would be able to help me with a compression test. As shown in my signature, mine is a 97' Jetta 1Z. I guess I could go and borrow one from a local auto parts shop and do it myself, but I don't imagine I will have the time before the fest anyways.

As far as I have read, you need:

Compression tester
Battery Charger (I have a trickle charger, not sure if that would supply sufficient power though)
VAG-COM to clear codes
wrenches, etc

I can crack open the glow plugs and re-tighten them before heading to the fest just to be sure they won't be frozen. If someone doesn't feel they need to watch over me then if I could just borrow someone's tester for a bit at the fest I would be happy. But I wouldn't mind one of the many gurus helping me out and giving me insight during the process.
