      Hi Matt,

      Nominally we send just one person out with the dome (me!). From the
      time we get it to its setup location it takes about 45 minutes to get
      it up and running .

      Due to the heft of the equipment, I require 2-3 people from the
      school/group site to help unload and get the dome spread out on the
      floor, but once it's inflating I take it from there.

      It is much easier with a second person, so if there are any staff or
      volunteers available I love to have them along! But for 5+ years I've
      done most of the setups on my own. We are expanding our staffing in
      this upcoming year so that shouldn't be the case as often.

      We have the Elumenati GeoDome.

      I hope this helps!

      Two questions. 1) How many people do you normally send out with a
      portable dome? 2) How long, on average, does it take you to set your
