Duckadang A/C Power

While it's still fresh in most attendees' minds ...

Can observers run long extension cords out to their mounts at Camp Duckadang, or is everyone on battery power only?

Thanks in anticipation.

The committee run power cables out from various building to power boards with about 4 outlets each. You then run your own cord from the power board to your setup.

However, I would suggest you have a small UPS as there been a number of blackouts. You can of course run off batteries, i prefer mains power.

Thanks.

I have an UPS, so can bring it along if need be. I just have to motivate myself to unplug it from the rats nest behind the computer ....
