events. We used to have most scheduled activities announced by
heralds. There were some real problems with this-- it was hard to get
enough heralds to do all those announcements, and people tended to
switch off their brains-- resulting in a slightly shambling schedule and
complaints from people who didn't get to the activity they wanted
because the herald "missed" them (or they just weren't paying attention).
Now now have pocket-sized printed timetables and a bell chimes the hours
from 8:00am to 8:00pm. Heralds announce Court, any changes to the
schedule and make any announcements requested, but do *not* announce
anything that's happening as printed. Combined with an expectation that
activities will start and finish on time, this has made events run less
stressfully and more smoothly.
