Ethan has done a good job, but now he is leaving us, so we should figure out what we are doing...
In the past the EO has basically been responsible for everything but, since nobody really seems to be jumping at the chance to replace Ethan, maybe we should try something different?
We could be more like a club and try to delegate jobs to different people, I suppose we could take turns each event if needed.
Event planner: this person books the venue, is the contact for the people at the venue, and makes sure we have what we need prior to the event. Once we are setup I figure this persons job is finished unless something comes up that we need to talk to venue staff.
Scheduler: this person creates the fight trees and is responsible for scheduling the matches throughout the event.
Safety Guy: this person does weigh-ins and safety checks by the book for all robots and enforces them.
Refs and Judges: I think we have no choice to do this as we normally do, use whoever is available and qualified. I think it would be a good idea to use one of our meeting nights to go over all the guidelines together, watch the SPARC video examples, discuss, and just get on the same page.
What else am I missing? Thoughts?
