[vcf-midatlantic] Volunteer signup sheet for recording VCFEast Classes

Hi Doug,

I plan to be at VCF tomorrow between 945am and 4pm at the latest.  I can volunteer to video at least some events in-between those times.  I would like to see the CRT repair session, so that one’s for sure.  Beyond that, I am free to shoot whatever.  I will bring two cameras, a tripod, AC adaptors for both cameras, and at least one 25’ extension cord.  

I can picture the following schedule for myself tomorrow…

1010am tent 2 - image capture  
1120am museum bldg  - CRT repair

Afterwards we work out what else there is for me to do.

Doug, should I look for you in the morning?  Or someone else?  Or just show up at tent 2 and plunk myself down?  One thing I could use is access to an electrical outlet as I hope to plug in my camera - no telling how long the battery will hold out.

Thanks guys for the great technical recommendations.
I'm hoping there is a person going to each event that has a real camcorder and a tripod!
Having videoed a few weddings on a shoe string I know how the close mic is generally so important to the spoken voice.  Maybe next time we can prepare some laveliers somehow and a bunch of cables and adapters to get the signal into any recording device that might present itself.
