    Logistic Committee for Trivia Night

    Post  MOMO on Tue Aug 17, 2010 6:49 am

    Hello Everybody, despite it being early I thought it might be beneficial if we start discussing some issues for Trivia Nights.

    Members who are expected to contribute:
    Carol
    Rebbecca
    Chris
    Angela
    Joel
    Katie
    Esther

    So some issues I was informed that we should discuss include:
    *How many people per table
    *How much for regintry per table and forms
    *Layout of the hall or an other alternate venues ceing considered
    *Day and Time
    *What we be available for purchase (drinks, jelly e.t.c.) and pricing

    If there is any other issues we need discussing please inform me.

    ...PS. if you are in the Logistic committee and I do not see you contributing to this post, then horrible horrible things will happen. Such as freaky phone calls and seeing my face every single time you look into the mirror!!!

    I think one white table per team, with 2 of those rows of 4 chairs per table.
    That way we can work with 8 people per team?

    I wouldn't bother too much with food like jelly and gelato and stuff, maybe just organise cold drinks for everyone, and tell them to buy their own food in the afternoon, but not to bring it into the hall.
    Because if you think about it, every dance we have and stuff, we end up cleaning a crap load of spilt jelly and gelato off the floor.

    Luckily for this committee, most of the work seems do have already done itself...

    Planned date is Friday 12th of November after school from about 5pm - 7pm - to be confirmed.

    There will be 10 teams of 8 people. As Harriet said, the white trestle tables can sit 4 people per side. The ten teams will be allocated countries - you think of them! - and will be placed throughout the hall (it may be good for you to come up with a floor plan or some kind of configuration).

    As for jelly and gelato and drinks and all - that's something we as an SRC will decide later.

    The most important thing now is to plan out cost for entry! Then you can put together a draft entry form, and plan out how publicity will work (having organised the logistics, this committee will transform into a publicity committee). Also will the countries be allocated at random, or will teams be allowed to choose?

    Wow awesome everythings so organised! alien
    I think it would be more fun if the teams chose their own countries and there could be like little cute flag of the chosen one they can have on their table? hehe
    As for publicity I would be pretty encouraged to participate if I knew what prize I was going to get if I won

    Do you think $5 per person is too much? Otherwise definitely no less than $3.
    I think charging per person rather than per team would be better so people don't feel pressured to have a full team of 8?

    I think we should give the teams countries, that or we have a list and the teams get to shotty the country they get to be? When they register we can give them a choice?

    Country ideas?:

    Sweden
    USA
    New Zealand
    Japan (!)
    Antarctica
    Brazil
    Fiji
    Latvia
    Mexico
    Yemen

    Just some strange countries so people will have to branch out a little bit, instead of just turning up in normal clothes.

    I agree with Japan, Mexico and Sweden, but I think we have to add countries with a little more cultural significance.
    How about some German's in lederhosen? Actually, see that might be too close to Sweden. Lol or Kazakhstan in mankinis!

    Omg I've just realised that these days I'm spending more time on SRC forum than facebook.

    I think maybe $4 for each person is the most suitable price.
    Are we assigning the groups the countries or do they choose themselves?

    If we say the whole table pays $40, that's a nice round figure and also means $5 per person. That means it's easy for either the table to pay as a whole or for each person to pay. Probably it's easiest if we ask them to pay as a total payment for the table and for the tables to organise payment within themselves. But is $40 per table too much?

    Well $5 per person sounds cheaper than $40 per group.

    OH

    are we having an MC for the trivia night?
    also, how many src people do we need to mark the quiz and stuff?
    i'd be happy to, but some people might want to participate with friends. also the questions committee can't because they know the answers.

    same goes for anyone who checks the forum really...

    No one checks the forum Hannah, don't be silly.
    What happened to that powerpoint idea? Is that still happening? Probably not.

    I'm happy to mark. I think I already put my name down somewhere.

    well, the powerpoint idea is up to the questions people.

    i think that having a powerpoint would be good, so everyone can see the question if they don't hear it.
    unless one of the challenges is for everyone to be quiet or you don't get to know what the question is...

    Well I wouldn't be able to make it,so unless someone wants to step up to the plate it can't go ahead.

    i could probably do it Smile
    as long as the final questions are on the forum and i know what order to put them in?
    are there are set number of points for all questions? or are there different numbers of points for different questions? and if the latter is true then should i put the available points next to each question?

    Just pointing out that maybe this discussion should be brought over to the questions committee thread rather than the logistics one?

    But in response, yes Romaan will be the questionmaster, yes we will have a powerpoint - someone in Questions committee will need to put their hand up for this. Markers will be whoever wants to mark - if there are about 5 or more people who can do this that'd be good, but anyone can do this.

    Now back to logistics!

    I will PM you the questions with point values in Brackets next to them. You down with that?
