Heres my list of traps for young players.
PLI insurance changes may make it tricky to get a venue where you can
sleep over in the hall. We have a caravan park nearby so are ok but it
is harder to cover the cost of everyone sleeping with a per head cost
charged by the park.
Make sure the hall has an accessible phoneline/bandwidth potential.
So far we are enjoying the people around the Moana area in trying to
get the bandwidth happening, some great and helpful folks but it
certainly isnt a done deal yet so fingers crossed. There is likely to
be quite a few people come and visit from the caravan park or cafe or
surf club so we may be doing something which is more like an SFD, a
bit oriented to newer folk, with some other things for geek to geek
banter. The caravan park changed hands so the new folk booked in a
youth group on the same weekend. They will have most of the cabins so
we will be in tents. Also means we will have a younger group likely to
visit for at least some of the event. Be gentle around parquet dance
flooring. Thats about it so far =)
