NOW WHAT? Trials and errors of the pageant

What else can go wrong?

Wednesday- spot power issues, riser collapse, genie (re)failure, sound guy forgot to turn amps off, dumb kids setting their shit on the $100,000 Steinway,

Thursday (so far)- Ion light board failure!!!; genie still down, power issues in the entire spot booth AND a professor's office, one spot has a bad ballast, the LD now has hours to switch to the Obsession before tonight's show...

I DID get to invent a fun new game with the help of one of the pageant's "girl wranglers". Some of the contestants kept sitting their props and clothes on our above-mentioned piano. I kept asking her to remind them not to do that. She eventually told me to take anything they placed on the piano and hide it in the cage. While I enjoyed this game immensely, the young ladies did not seem to enjoy it as much as I had hoped.
