Tech Data Page 03
Breakfast buffet in the Hotel -Opens at 07:30. Lunch-Opens 12:30, and Dinner- Opens at 19:30All your private rooms and meals in the hotel are covered as outlined in the hospitality letter Silvia sent to you some time ago, of course. We have requested vegetarian options be made available besides just salads and pasta for the vegetarians in the group.
Please limit the impact of sand in this fine hotel and restaurant.
You will ask for a bicycle key upon checking in if you are not presented with one, but the front desk staff is expecting you to each have one for your exclusive use each day. Please keep the bicycles locked At All Times everywhere when you are not riding them.
The "official" work schedule is the same for all 14 workdays, 8 working hours per day.4 morning hours 09:00-13:00 one hour break for lunch 13:00 - 14:004 working hours in the afternoon, 14:00 -18:00.
BUT, it is not likely anyone can return to the hotel and get clean enough not to impact a lot of sand in the hotel, eat, and get back to work in just one hour, so I ask you to flex your worktime how you prefer to be able to be comfortable with your breakfast, starting work time, midday break, and afternoon work hours to get at least the prescribed 8 work hours per day, in.
You can start early or work late to flex the time to have a satisfactory & comfortable midday break and still work 8 hours a day. (I am aware some of you work more than 8 hours per day anyway, and that is appreciated, thank you, as ever), It is not required that you sit down to any meals as a group. You can take any meal at anytime the Hotel restaurant is open for each meal.
If you prefer to take any meals elsewhere, that is up to you, but you must pay for those yourself.
On the map, you will see stores for purchasing food or other things you may want or need, as well as a pharmacy, hardware store, and some pizza places, and a Mcdonald's not far from the work site. Plus a BIG shopping center near the show tent.
Please wear your Sultans Of Sand brand gear visibly & no other brands at all times while in the tent, as there will be video and still photos taken at any time.You have to wear safety shoes and use the safety equipment as required also.
Please do not post images of the work you are doing in this show on social media or anywhere else except small teasers not showing the full scope of your work, until at least Christmas day. And when you do post images, please credit (with hashtags) #citadiJesolo,#myjesolo, #jesolosandnativity, #sultansofsandworldwide, & www.sultansofsand.com when you do.

Contact Rich if you have any questions about any of this. <End 10 November 2022 Update>
Please respond to the invite by return email with the invite text from that email intact ASAP. If you simply respond with something like "Yes, I accept" -with the invitation text from me intact, I will write back again and confirm you are indeed hired. This will be the extent of any formal contract between us. But be sure to read this TDP, especially the TERMS & CONDITIONS tab below, which IS current info. The theme is "PEACE" based on stories from the Bible that the local church is suggesting I use for your sculptures. I will assign your scene subjects to you as soon as they are approved by the producers. Sketches will be required from you after your subjects are assigned for the producers to approve them, too. Watch for updates regarding this.If you wish, and if you let Rich know in time, you may tweak your poundup configuration a little, from what you will see on the LAYOUT & PU SPECS & VIEW ANGLES tab below. After you get your assignments - hopefully shortly, let me know if you have ideas or questions about your composition designs (or anything else) so you can start composing your sketches as soon as possible. The base form size will need to remain the size indicated on the TDP (when the TDP is completed) though. The bottom form always stays on, and please do not develop any elements on the sand outside of the bottom pedestal frame. Everything must be contained in your bottom (base/pedestal) form. <End- 16 September 2022 Update>
Poundups will be completed, and at least the top two levels of forms will be removed & the parapet guard rails installed on the next level down that has wood forms still on before you arrive. If you want more than two upper levels of forms removed, let Rich know well in advance. <End- 16 October 2022 Update>
