Should we call it "BB20 Skill Building Jamboree" or something else? Right now, I've been using "BB20 Skill Building Event" as a placeholder name. I'm thinking BB20 doesn't say enough, but "BB20 Skill Building" is kind of lame sounding, though accurate. Ideas?
This event is aimed at completing the BBs that you can't complete easily at home, such as: driving an excavator, building a 7-foot hugel, firing up rocket stoves, using a solar dehydrator and rocket oven, etc.
I want to save the word "jamboree" for stuff that is a bit more formal and has multiple tracks.
And I also feel like the word "workshop" implies a formal single track.
I want this to be easy on the unpaid instructors and the students that are not paying. It is an opportunity to try something out. And who knows, maybe it will end up being nothing more than mike, ashley and ash coming for a visit for a week. And I'm okay with that too.
