I'm not so sure about having lots of tracks at the event. I think just having 2 tracks would work out quite well - that's what naturally happened during the event.
Butterfly days sound like they could be lovely. I think if SKIP is it's own event, then working 6 days per week is fine, but when it's following the PDC and PTJ then the extra days off are needed.
Having a dedicated photographer that knows what each submission needs would be amazing, but difficult to pull off in practice because of all the different activities going on at once.
