This year the room looked fantastic thanks to the involvement of Tafe Events students who decorated the room in a ‘Hollywood’ style, and Tafe had upgraded new chairs. Delectable sushi and other nibbles were lovingly prepared by Tafe chef students and were much enjoyed. Certainly they also deserve a big thanks for their support and contribution to the event
We did have a last minute technical glitch with the audio amplifier blowing up 1/2hr before the show (we presumed) which resulted in a mad scramble to find an alternate system. Fortunately there was the studio speakers and mixer in the IT block and our audio master Tony Hogan saved the day by working out the switching on the mixer.
This year and last year I did the video switching for student clips, made a poster and had mixed some new visuals which were playing at the beginning and end of event.
After the audio glitch was sorted, the evening went smoothly and was a great success.
