As you are reading this, we the staff and volunteers at Channel 14 hope that your Holiday Season is everything you hoped for. Each year it manages to slip away so quickly, and I myself can remember once in the last 10 years where I was able to sit back and just look at the lights on our Christmas Tree. Well this year it is going to be different. Organization is the key. Sure their is a lot to get done and and a busy schedule to attend to, but it is certainly manageable. Efficiency is the key. Somethings will just have to go to the bottom of the list if not off the list completely. Prioritizing is the key. Already I have to many keys.
Just a second to catch up on recent activity at the studio. The Christmas Parade was a memorable one. Thank you to all the groups and organizations who braved the blizzard conditions to walk the parade route. Out Channel 14 mobile trailer was parked at Pop's Custard on Appleton to cover the action. The crew of 3 had to put up a tent to cover the cameras as the snow was just too wet and would have rendered them useless. I just heard that MenoHarmonee playback music slowed down at the end of the parade due to moisture. With the snow and wind blowing in our faces, we decided to run the cameras by remote control from inside the trailer. A lot more cabling but, toasty and dry inside. It was not our best work, but it keeps our streak of 20 years of covering the Christmas Parade intact. If you haven't noticed, we have been running the 2007 Parade in addition to the White-out version of this year.
