From Electromagnetic Field





Proposed remit & vague ideas of what may need to be dealt with:

  • Provide up-to-date information on what's happening at the camp to:
  • Organising and running the physical info desk
  • Creating/liaising with communications over creation of info packs etc for attendees (see below)
  • Be the main contact for HQ
  • Run the camp 'General Store'


  • Confirm remit
  • Confirm difference with communications (i.e. who makes info packs etc, should this be separate)
  • Start looking at quotes for packs


The desk should be able to answer the following sorts of questions:

  • attendees/everyone
    • What should I do about (noise, this fire, my tent mutating into godzilla, zombies)?
      • Most likely: "group X are being noisy and I'm trying to sleep, help please?"
    • What's on (now, next year....)?
    • Where is (alpha stage, the death weasel village, atlantis...)?
    • How do I (get internet, join a workshop/village, volunteer, dance the mamba...)?
  • speakers
    • Can I use (a mac, an OHP, glow-in-the-dark paint, semaphore...)? and how do I?
    • How long before my talk do I have to get there/ what do I need to do before hand?
    • Can someone help me with (setting up high voltage death wand, moving un-moveable block ...)?
  • volunteers
    • Can I change my (shift, role, t-shirt size...)?
    • When does my shift start?
    • What do I need to do?

    • Water for attendees?
