From Ace Monster Toys Wiki
- Show up at 6:30
- The Hospitality Steward may need support setting up food and it is nice to get out the non-beer drink for him.
- Find the phone and when it starts ringing say tell people what suite we are in and that you are buzing them in.
- Hit 9 to buzz them in Press OFF otherwise you will be hanging up the phone system for the night.
- Create an agenda (this can be done way ahead of time). Here are some regular topics and ideas:
