Behind the scenes

Friday 19 May 2000

    A conference of this nature takes a lot of time and effort to put together and relies on volunteer help to get everything done. Friday night was devoted to the tasks of cutting and laminating badges... folding and stapling programs... stuffing goodies bags... compiling Brewster Award entries onto a single ADAT tape to simplify presentation... and a myriad of other tasks needed to make the conference run smoothly.
    Special thanks go to Karl Rothweiler, Mark Schweter, Rob Mudryk, Matt Polak, Ken Suzuki, Ian Wood, Derek Garbos and Bill Benner who all pitched in and helped out.

    Setting up and testing all of the laser, sound and lighting equipment for the laser theatre on Saturday night after the Open House is always a big job that takes the production crew until the wee hours to complete!
