You can also mount the pots on both sides of the PC board - this way,
you could have two rows of them. 

The pots fastened to the copper side of a single-side board might have a
tendency to pull the traces off but you could run the legs through the
other side and use either epoxy or just crimp them.  Need to have the
board secured a bit better...
