Whether you’re cooking, providing supplies, or just filling your belly, Baconcamp asks that everyone participate.
Things to bring
name tags & pens
cups (regular sized & mini mouthwash-sized cups for the bourbon) Leah Culver will be bringing these
money box & security mechanism – Karen will provide
Promotions – evangalize BaconCamp, create fliers/banners/etc, get people excited and talking
Sponsors – be the primary contact for them, maintain a list of who they are & what they’re bringing – Jason Glaspey and Eden Hensley
Facilities & Supplies – audio equipment for preso, acquire cups & such, decorations
Volunteers – coordinate anyone who wants to volunteer to help out (Karen will be the main contact for this)
Setup [11am – 1pm] – move furniture, organize space, put out supplies, etc
Door duty [12pm – 5pm] – This mainly involves standing at the door and smiling as people enter. You will also hand out judging cards and name tags, request donations from participants, and direct bacon-bearers to the appropriate area.
Break down [4pm – 5pm] – move furniture and general clean up
Shifts are at least 1 hour. Fill in your name in the table for available times and duties
Scheduling and Presentations – each presenter briefly describes his dish before bringing it out. They can sign up for timeslots when they arrive.
How to prevent chaos? – Do this on video too for posterity sake?
What if we say arrive at 1pm and then at 2pm we do a “tour-of-bacon” where the people who brought dishes get 2 minutes (a la Ignite) to describe their dish, inspiration, etc? That way its not just mayhem … this could be done around the judging table?
