Recruitment: Stage 1

Yesterday’s recruitment efforts at the BGR Student Activities Fair went pretty well, even though kryten was being stubborn about playing audio (I hate ESD and ALSA), Totem kept crashing every ten minutes or so, Wes couldn’t get the flag, and the printer started running low on toner about a third of the way through printing our fliers. We attracted a pretty good number of interested people (who hopefully will come to the callout in a couple of weeks), and quite a few of them even had previous theatre experience. For some reason, our attempts to give away leftovers from Matt’s lunch didn’t have any takers.

Good think the fair only lasted about two hours; I don’t think my voice would’ve held out for too much longer, though I was getting pretty good at running through who we are and what we do pretty quickly.
