Café-equipment
Café PA: There is an earth-hum
AP: Chris and Nix will take them out and rewire them…

We agreed to use a circuit-breaker to switch off the PA over night. Only the sound team should use it.

Sound Team

What do sound engineers need to know before we can let them loose on our equipment?
We will look through Julie’s “guide” and collaborate to finish it and put it online. Let’s set a 2 week deadline and other people can comment on it, add stuff etc.
It will be put on the bb and you can comment on it. In 2 weeks time I (Julie) will correct the guide and print it.
AP: Julie

Hall:
We should tidy up the hall and rewire the PA. 23/january at 11.00am
