Stephanie "Example" Jones

Cut and paste this section, then add your own info. Remove this paragraph, and anything involving mogwai, unless your issue was in fact mogwai related. Don't use your real name if you don't want to.

What went wrong?

Someone fed the mogwai after midnight.

What could we do to prevent those things going wrong again?

Don't bring mogwai.

How did you feel about the process of trying to organise Barncamp 2019?

It was great.

Would you be willing to try to help organise next year in 2020?

Yes, based on a no mogwai solution.

Anything else to share?

No, I'm trying to ignore the horrific memories.

Gremble

What went wrong?

Essentially we were almost there. We lost touch with a core member who couldn't drive due to injury, and so couldn't get the kit there. This would normally have been MH's role.

What could we do to prevent those things going wrong again?

It's been suggested that we have a lock up in Bristol or nearer to the site, so that kit would be nearer. If possible this would be for a lot of valuable equipment. In any case, have things in a much more limited set of locations would make taking equipment to site easier.

Having backup operators for core tasks is essential, and that should be built into the organisation process.

How did you feel about the process of trying to organise Barncamp 2019?

Fine, but a bit late.

Would you be willing to try to help organise next year in 2020?

Yes, based on a no mogwai solution.

Anything else to share?

No. But maybe I'll add something later.
