Match Game SF

Music! Sound! Worries!

This evening, on the way home from work, I bought 500 blank 5 x 8 index cards, which we use for the panelist responses and for the question cards. Now I need to find the time to print them. It takes a long time to run 300 or so cards through the printer.

That reminds me that we could certainly use a couple of production assistants for such things as dealing with getting the contestants their prizes and feeding me new sets of questions between games. Write to me if you're interested.

If I sound nervous about this show, I am. It's the biggest one we've done yet, and has the least amount of preparation time we'll ever have, and Lisa won't do the tech because it's all being done by BayCon's people. There are so many things that could go wrong, it isn't funny at all. But it's my job to worry about these things now -- that's the "producer" hat. My "host" persona just has to grin and improvise on the spot.
