My role was organizing the opening ceremony on Saturday. I've put on events before but never one with a cast of 40. Everyone showed (early !) so the event started on time and it seemed that everyone had a good time !
The heat was the only drawback.

Piping in the speakers:

You know, whenever I put on an event it gets raided by pirates.
I'm really getting fed up with that.
