That would be good if that was the case. But bring your tea towel just in case as the instructions don't mention anything about a steriliser!!

So you reckon we can sneak in ten minutes early? :D or will doors only unlock from the 9:30am time. I guess we can have all our stuff unpacked and right outside the doors.

I think the chance of getting in early is slim to none. 1/2 hour is plenty of time if we are organised. Everyone unload up to the doors and we'll all help get it in.

THe doors are electronic so yea. Not like we can sneak in early.

just have to ask (cos im a sore fat pregnant woman who will take some time to set up) is this necessary for us DIYers??? do we need to worry about what we say??????? cos im just gunna explain about fabrics and how to make nappys and if they want to make their own tell them where to go.

I asked about the door thing. Definitely on automatic. But we'll be ready when they do open!

Briefing session not really necessary for DIY, but join us if you'd like to, I was thinking:

Fire drill protocol (yawn)
Not telling people what to do eg washing regime, stripping
Where all the retailers are and what they're stocking so we can refer people to the right table
What's in the demo kit
How we're going to greet people and get them in the prize draw
Asking people if they're from Waitakere so we can refer them to the WCC table

Because we don't want them wrecking their nappies and then saying to the manufacturer 'but TNN told me to do this at the expo'.

We're going to use words like 'some people like to...' or 'the way I do it is...'

Oh I was thinking more from the viewpoint that big long spiels about washing routines, stripping, etc just puts people off! LOL (some people's washing routines just about put *me* off! ) Or can be used as an excuse not to, iykwim.

Yeah there is that too - don't make it sound too hard.

Another one for the volunteer briefing - no talk about poo explosions! A definite off putting subject.
