Lighting and sound | |were among the many other tasks assigned.
Among meeting the workers, I was further introduced to the main partners, Ryan, Louis, | |and Bobby.

For instance, in | |tackling the infrastructure of the trusses, had to know to how position the truss for lights to be mounted on, and in organizing | |the light system, I had to know how many wattage the lights were generating so as to not conflict with what the sound system would | |need in terms of wattage because all the lights and the sound would be connected to one generator. Nonetheless, this did not affect| |the product of my labour. | Internship Journal Date: June 18, 2011 |Number of Hours Worked: 30hrs | |Weather Condition: Sunny and Hot | |Venue/Location: Caymanas Polo Club | |Name of Event: “Twisted Spirits” | |Event Type: Party | Activities: | |I had arrived to the venue late.
