Show trip route
We had to spend a day or two outside of Long Island while we wait to stay on Long Island for our Friday show. Thursday would have been on Staten Island, but that show cancelled (thankfully!).
So we had two days in New Jersey. Fortunately, our friends the Barnwells are going along the same route we are. They had a show in Little Falls, NJ, today, and we decided to join forces and help them with the show.
We all stayed in the Ramada in Wayne, and enjoyed some burgers at Cheeseburger in Paradise the night before. The hotels fantastic breakfast fueled our morning, which fortunately was not too early. We were scheduled to arrive at 7:15, which we did, but we waited outside for a while waiting to be let in the school. Once we were in, a couple sixth graders in choir "helped" us bring some equipment in, but after that, we were on our own.
Needless to say, our set-up was a breeze. Steve and I put screens up, and the girls set up A/V. I think we may have set-up in a half hour going at a social, leisurely pace.
We got to watch the new elementary version of our show, as did six ladies from area schools who were previewing our shows with hopes of bringing it into their own schools. After the first elementary show, we showed the regular high school version, and the ladies stayed around to watch that one, too. It was kinda fun to cater to some potential clients.
In case you were wondering, they loved the show, and raved about it afterwards. I talked to them before they left to get their feedback, and they all seemed pretty excited to do some business with Camfel. Score! The four-person team worked! Now if we could only get our boss to send the four of us to Texas next semester....
