Barebones Mistakes

"Malignity therefore may dart her shafts, but no earthly power can deprive me of the consolation of knowing that I have not … been guilty of willful error, however numerous they may have been from other causes."               George Washington

By cataloging our mistakes we hope to avoid duplicating them. We also hope that other event organizers will learn from our errors and that participants will understand the kind of mistakes that happen despite organizers' best efforts.
