RE:Lessons Learned - Monomoy Clave
Another lesson learned -
The contact protocol for those arriving at different times needs to be more stringent. I am not pleased with my handling of the arrangement for Mike Powers, Fred, Brian and Rick to name a few.
In future claves it will be imperative to provide better coordination and also course-correction notices by cell phone, email or normal land-lines.
a) establishment and adherence to a core clave plan
b) better contact info per claver, and an awareness of deviations from the stated plan with proper notification
c) less spontaneous activity, particularly by the clave meister who's responsibility is to coordinate all named participants
Sounds pretty serious but it's inconsiderate to leave folks hanging. I hope all had a good time anyway, lessons learned.
