Why are we doing this? 2010: A major team assembled. Highlights on YouTube
Why are we doing this? 2011: No banquet video. Photo slideshow only. Nobody came back from last year. It was draining.
Why are we doing this? 2012: Another Media Team was in charge. The editor from CPC said he was drained.
Why are we doing this? 2013: One uncle from CGCS volunteered to film. August: Nobody available to make Banquet Video
Why are we doing this? Same feedback every year: “Our team is not shown!” Past volunteers: burned out or reduced coverage. Family album: Everyone is loved & appreciated 2013 STATISTICS 74 Teams. Over 1,700 players Peak Season: up to 54 Games across 9 Diamonds League had 2 regular members filming the games Consistent Problem: We cannot be everywhere at once!
