I must say, whilst it was a extremely cold night, and we wish our normal term 1 Disco went ahead as originally plan (Covid and rain events etc), we as volunteers are overwhelmingly super happy with how it turned out.
We saw a bigger increase in participation, way more volunteers too, and learnt from previous years by increasing the space and giving everyone more room to move around. We also fine-tuned queuing with a better ticket process, as well as more fun with showbags, glow products, amazing baked goods, golden tickets and prizes and additional food options.
Behind the scenes, to pull off an event like this was months in planning. We were having weekly meetings to discuss progress, lock in volunteers, organise vendors, stock requirements and other logistics, not to mention the time critical on-the-day preparation and and most importantly COSTUMES, which were all awesome BTW. It was a lot of work, but for all involved it was so rewarding to see it come to life. One of those things you'll remember 50 years from now.
We want to thank again to all to our sponsors who either donated there time and or resources to help make the night successful as it was.
