ALL IN A DAY'S WORK - Part 1 of 3

I haven't really blogged about what I do for a living a whole lot - at least the mechanics of it. Today was the annual Tim Hortons Charity Golf Tournament in support of the Children's Camps that the Tim Horton Foundation runs. This one specifically is the Kananaskis camp 45 minutes west of Calgary and south on Highway 40.

I truly look forward to this contract every year. This is the example of why I love going to work - why I love waking up to my job. Firstly I love sound. Sound systemes, video systems - anything I can plug in and turn on, really. This contract differs from the bread and butter contracts in that it's not a "DJ" contract. It's a sound and video contract.

The day went something like this:

6:00 AM - The alarm goes off far too early for me since I had been up loading the van the night before until 11:00ish (an aspect of the job I'm not too thrilled about, but it comes with the territory)

6:30 AM - Showered, ready to go, grab the necessary last minute bits and pieces for the road.

7:00 AM - On the road to Kananaskis. Out Highway 1 (the Trans Canada) westbound. Traffic is light being a Thursday morning.

8:15 AM - Arrive at the Tim Hortons Ranch.

8:30 AM - The work begins... a picture's worth a thousand words, so here goes...
Van doors open, equipment ready to unload

The Mashall Hall - rather empty.

...Part 2 tomorrow because apparently Blogger won't let me post any more photos. Grrr... Do you know of a Blogger Law that states you can post only so many photos per day or per post?

You could try posting in a new post and then just cutting and pasting the code to where you want it. But you shouldn't have to. I have seen lots of blogs with lots of photos.

i know a lot of people are complaining about that blogger law. people are moving their blogs right and left.

so, wouldn't it be way more fun, to wait until the morning of, and then run around like a scared rabbit, packing the van at the last minute? thats what my MO would be. cause i'm basically a procrastinating idiot. THEN after i run around like a scared rabbit, i make sure to have a doctors appt, one in which they check my blood pressure, and attempt to hospitalize me. good thinking huh?

waiting patiently for part two~

Thanks AC - Sadly, it didn't work. :(

Susie - You're hillarious! You're me, actually, but my apparent "readiness" is out of sheer fear of being late to a remote location, then showing up with something missing. That's bad for business!
