Subject: Tech: Hints for Zoom Singaround Hosts
We've had our Mudcat Worldwide Singaround since early June, and it has been delightful. I think I'm attending 5 or 6 Zoom sessions a week. I've learned a lot about the technology of Zoom, but I can see I need to learn more.

I pay ten bucks a month for a "Pro" Zoom account, and that allows me to host 100 people for sessions of unlimited length. But today we had a family emergency (stepson's motorcycle crash - he's OK), and I thought I was going to have to cancel the singaround. If I had been forced to leave, what could I have done to avoid having to cancel the singaround? Do I have to give my user name and password to somebody else if I need a replacement, or what?

I have two very competent co-hosts, Noreen and Casey. Is there a way they could have opened and supervised the singaround?
