Welp. My rugby event went off excellently this weekend. 43 teams, 120 games on three fields, 2 days, 600+ players, and about 2k fans. Everyone was pretty thrilled with the event as a whole, and new teams took the trophies. We had about 6 weeks to plan this. Over 100 volunteers. And the entire event was filmed and streamed online, with full professional commentary from Olympians and USA Eagles players, as well as MLR luminaries.
It was quite an extraordinary thing to be a part of.
Now I'm downloading the 50 gig video files (ten of them) so I can chop them up into individual matches and get them posted to The Rugby Network and YouTube. Gonna be a few minutes, I tell ya!
Especially since I set the biggest part of the download to happen last night after I went to bed ... and we had a power outage from 2:AM to about 9:AM, that corrupted all of the files... so I need to do it all over again.
Oh. And I have a day job, too.
