    do you guys think it's better to start a new thread for this? if people were to start reading from page 1, it doesn't really make any sense to follow thru 32 pages of our kopitiam banter.

    Here's a sitrep from last night's meeting.

    Basically we got the sponsor for the shooting and printing equipment, food and drinks settled.

    Next would be the logistic side, pickup stores, setup/teardown, schedule, return stores. Alex and Yqt working on the schedules and will be posted up soon.

    I know everyone is very busy, so try your best to fit in for the core group duties. We need past experience guys/gals to pull this off in such a short notice.

    Tentages, so far no sponsor. So we may need to buy them, and probably share among the core on the cost. It's something like $99 per tent, we need 3.


    We need a short write up on the cause/event/venue/timing so that can be circulated to familes and friends for more exposure in short time. The last time we had it made in 3/4 languages. Anyone pocessing this skill, please pm ortega.

    Critical factors:

    We hope to have as many core group on the first day as possible, so that we can refresh for ourselves on the working systems.

    The shoot to print will need to be runned perfectly. we leave that expertise to wai/UK and Jopel to decide on the best method.


    PRs...we need ppl good witht his skill to interact with tourist and ppl. AMIGO! where are you?

    If everything works out we will be starting from the 17th/18th week.

    Its going to be honor along you guys/gals again.
    I lup SG, but SG don't love me...
