Post Annual Dinner Drama

Tip: You may need to read Pre-Annual Dinner Drama, Smoky Eye and Annual Dinner Teaser before you continue reading this post.

The annual dinner was held last week at The Pavilion of ParkCity Everly Hotel. The theme for the night was ‘Night of the Hats’. The venue was booked since last year by the previous CRC committee team. Being part of the ‘event organizer’, I was really paranoid on the responses received from the other staff but toward the end, it seems that everybody had fun especially seeing those who went back home with their lucky draw prizes.

From an insight view, I honestly wasn’t happy with the venue setup as not everything has been discussed and agreed upon was not fully materialized.

There are no rose petals on the dinner table as agreed; it will definitely look plain if I didn’t ordered fresh flowers to be placed on the ‘Lazy Susan’.

The cocktail counter, open bar and the photo wall were placed not accordingly to what has agreed. The complimentary tidbits were even served late.

I wanted the venue place full of floating hat balloons in line with the dinner theme but no one willing to sponsor the helium gas.

I want several small spot lights placed along the T-shape stage for spectacular lighting effects but I got 2 huge standing spotlights placed at the side of the main stage instead. The T-shape stage is even much shorter despite the fact that we have agreed on the preferred length.

I want a suspense opening act by switching the light off followed by explosive of confetti when the lights are on but the lights goes dim all the way coz there’s only 1 technician on duty.

I’m fine with the food but serving the food late although a master program list has been given indicating when the dishes suppose to be served is something I can’t tolerate with. I end up going home feeling hungry instead of feeling full.

But one thing for sure, I’ve learnt a lot out of it. I have to accept the fact that it’s better to have a plan rather than none. I have to accept the fact that there will be hiccups along the way. At the end of it, everything will be fine. Encouragements, compliments I received do motivate and push me not to give up easily and guess what; I’m looking forward for another adventure.

It is said pictures tell thousand stories behind it so here goes…

Credits goes to Ian and Micheal for some of the photos.
