Tim, I don't really think Sunday is a good idea. Thats when they have the actual service. Maybe we could do it on the monday????.
The monday isnt a public holiday! Labour Day is on Monday 9 March. If its gotta be on the saturday sorry guys but i won't be able to make it

What time does the service start/finish? would it be possible to have it afterwards?

If it is on during February and not march, I will have to be away for a bit of it, because of my basketball. I think that only 1 and a bit weeks is a bit short to organize a comp imo. if it were in march it on the labour day weekend it would be a good idea.

I see you changed the date back to Saturday in March.

Is it necessary to have 4 judges for some events? I think we should only have 2 or 3 stackmats set up, and use CCT as a display. Also - scrap snake as it isn't an official event.

Tim - would you be able to get internet there? Because thats the only way we can have a live broadcast. If you would like - we can have my webcam filming all day, but not streaming - I will bring along the webcam software CD so we can.

Shouldn't you be asking me that question feliks, I'm pretty sure there is a wireless network at the church, my dad said he would look into that.

are you wanting to take my title that i will get??? well you gotta be sub-2 by the comp.

#### TimMc

I don't have wireless internet. I could tap into some residential internet connections... but would need their permission. I think we should just focus on video taping the whole event. We can compress it and upload the entire tape if people really want.

4 judges would be preferable if there are 12+ competitors and if we're using 4 stack mats. I'll bring along two full size mats and two timers. I'll have my other one handy too...

We can make do with just 2 judges per event, but 1 wouldn't be enough. There would be too much waiting around etc.

Tim.

Tim, there is a wireless network at the church, i'm pretty sure my dad would let us use it. I don't really do 2x2, so i can help with scrambling/judging. I can also judge magic. I'm sure my parents would be happy to help judge if necessary.
