New Saturday Schedule - By Appointment Only

After reviewing member reservations for the past six to twelve months, we have noticed that there are very few reservations for field equipment and even fewer for editing and studio time on Saturdays. As a result, we will be moving to a “by appointment only” system on Saturdays.  If you are interested in reserving either our studios, edit suites or conference room please do so by Thursday at 8:00pm for the following Saturday. Members are encouraged to call on Friday to confirm that we are open on a Saturday to reserve or drop off equipment if needed.  When possible, Saturday’s schedule will also be placed on PACTV’s website, www.pactv.org.  Portable equipment for weekend use must be checked out no later than Friday at 9:45pm (since PACTV closes at 10:00pm) and returned the following Monday.  In the case of a Monday holiday, equipment checked out on a Friday must be returned on the following Wednesday.

We hope that this change does not cause any inconvenience and will encourage members to reserve the conference room, studios or edit suites well in advance for Saturday mornings.  If you have any questions, please contact Carol McGilvray, Membership Coordinator at carolm@pactv.org 508-830-6999 x115.
