  • pillows, couches, etc for the community areas
  • cooking gear for at least 50 people
  • TeaHouse material and logistics

Ideas for improvement from last meeting of camppp7e1

  • Communication:
    • sending invitations to previous attendees
      • I'm not sure how we should do it, the ticketing system intentionally doesn't store information after the end of each event ~dnet
    • ask what attendees can contribute during registration
    • bring a chalkboard for shopping list and announcements
    • stream talks (at least) locally, so that people doing things like cooking at the camp-site can also listen to them
      • HAVOC will try this, especially since we already have a voctomix setup, however if we need more than just audio, a TV would be great for afternoon talks, when a beamer won't be much visible ~dnet
    • have an introductory session in the beginning as the first plenum
  • Camping:
    • take care of yourself, bring cutlery and dishes, don't assume it to be provided
    • distribute checklists based on congress, camping and nerds traveling guides
  • Trash:
    • give a trash bag along with the wristband to everyone in order to help and encourage people collect trash
    • have a trash policy, collect it selectively
  • Campsite:

Further ideas

  • Lost and Found desk:
    • Items left behind from previous years, if the owner is still not found, could be put in a box in a visible place
    • Maybe a policy for how long they are kept
