Designing a course
Minimum course length: 3 days
Typical course outline for a three-day course (this is not written in stone):
Dinner often is served in the course room.
The hosting team arrives at least one day before the course is to begin. The host is required to attend any gatherings of the team called by the team leader during that pre-course day.
There will be a pre-course gathering the evening before the course officially starts. For example, if the course starts Friday morning, the pre-course gathering is Thursday evening. This gathering should be considered part of the course, and every guest should attend if at all possible. All host and guest guidelines for the course apply to this gathering as well.
There is also a morning pre-course meeting every day of the course, usually about two hours before the course. The host will attend these meetings as well.
These pre-meetings are extremely important, because there have been instances where the entire result of the course was determined at these meetings.
Courses are usually completed with a celebration evening. It is usually, but not necessarily, the last evening of the course - this can be worked out in advance and changed on short notice by the people in charge of the course.
Tell your guests to plan on being in a talent show and doing skits during the celebration evening, and to keep a sharp eye out for skit material during the course.
