I provided the rig for the annual ACS Relay for Life this past Friday night/Saturday morning.

The committee could not get the "show-mobile" as in past years so they got a ramp/tow truck to use as a stage....way less room.

Due to the lack of stage space there weren't as many contests/games (which was fine for me as I have had to MC some of the games in the past).

It was an easy Friday evening as it was mostly DJ music (there was a DJ there)...so easy that I even left the event to bang-out a wedding ceremony in Providence, RI https://www.facebook.com/allegrochamberplayers?skip_nax_wizard=true- they didn't even miss me!

Saturday morning there was a rain-squall approaching ('could see it on the radar) and I brought it to the event's director. She decided to end the event earlier (usually the closing ceremony is at 10:00am) this time it was 8:00am and she held the ceremony in a tent.

The DJ and I started breaking down the stage rig when it started raining. The cabs were bagged/tarped but all the wires/stands got wet.

Currently all of my gear has all of the racks open and all of the wires/cords "strewn all over" my storage space drying out.
I'll go back Monday morning and straighten tidy up.

        "maybe" lost one or two cables that did not dry out properly or simply were junk anyway as that was during the years I bought the $5 cables from Musicians Friend. Now I buy better cables and have not ... more
      • Bags, tarps, & covers, oh my!Boomer, Thu Jun 28 10:27
        We just have plastic tarps under the subs and pull them up and over them for bad weather or overnight storage. Tuck them over top and underneath with a ratchet strap around them. This is normally for ... more
