Volunteer information/training

There is a draft schedule to fill in below. Since this is a simple event, filling out the full schedule may not be necessary, however, it is a good starting point to plan on.

It is probably true one person can manage videoing themselves. We'd like to have one of Simon, Eric, or Richard around at all times. One DVSwitch and one camera operator is ideal, and should result in a relatively easy workload.

Only one person is needed during the breaks (to watch over the equipment and keep it from getting messed with). Volunteers for session X are encouraged to arrive during the break before session X, so that they can become familiar with the equipment and do some quick practice.




0845 - 1030

1030 - 1045 break

1045 - 1215

1215 - 1330 lunch

1315 - 1415 (unrecorded)

1415 - 1500

1500 - 1515 break

1500 - 1700
