In a previous life, I was involved in F&B, for many years.
One held position was "Director of Catering & Banquets" at a recognizable hotel in St Louis.
One thing you NEVER did (in the grand hall) after a multiple day event was already in the Que, was to book something in the middle of it.
Setting the room, run the event, clearing, resetting the room, event, clearing it again, and reset the room, again for the original event.
Never double book a room, not like an airline, where they over sale almost every seat on every fight.
Even though we were a multi-million dollar property, I'm sure The FC's budget may be larger and labor cost may be of no real consequence.
But, it's those intangibles, I always had to be
thinking about and be aware of.
All kinds of shit can go wrong, when you're pinched for time.
Another reason I thought to comment, "piss poor planning"....
If The NCAA or another tournament is looking at The FC, for a future event.
I'm thinking, "WTF, my vendors are being moved, their stuff is exposed, my banners or advertising?....Will it all be properly returned to same location?
Is my stuff secured?
The floor?.....being exposed to room temps then covered, does that increase seepage and slick spots? Possible injuries?
If a TV contract?
What happens if The FC can't be turned around in time?
I just don't think it's a good idea to sandwich in a hockey game between a pair of UE hosted double headers.
But, that's just me.
Forgive me.....It's July & the tourist are starting to work the nerves, so I vent in here...
