Re: How about a nice long hot summer?
Am I just weird then?
Because when I worked on a certain robot tv show, 50C was 'normal' for in the arena.
One season we filmed in San Fran, in an old WW2 warehouse converted into an event space... kinda in the bay. There's no AC, and it's June. And then we bring in the lighting. This was 2000 (in fact, I'm lucky in that the day after we'd finished filming and packing up - also my one sightseeing day - it hit 111F (44C) and a new record for San Fran, and 6 people passed out in the then-new PacBell park) and there was no LED lighting, it was all incandescent. We had full on TV lighting, and to ensure the lighting was constant, the lighting guys had taken the double-line of windows at the crown of the buildings room, and blacked them out with black curtains (so they were nice and hot). And by 'full on TV lighting', we're talking a 100,000W storm-strobe, and dozens of 1500W lights (maybe 60+) pointing into the arena. Oh, and the arena was lexan, between 1 and 1/4 inch thick throughout, the only air escape was the two 8x8 doors when they were open, or the two 3ft ducts for ventilation for IC engines to be used.
And me and the other 5 arena crew had to go in there, guard the arena hazards, and help the teams load upto 350lb bots on a cart, then clean up debris, then help the next team in there, and help them unload, Maybe 3 minutes inside every 10 minutes. Oh, and since we were safety, full protection gear - so kevlar pants, steel toe/shank boots,and body armour (one guy, living up to his ex-marine status, also then put some highly chromed plate armour on top).
We went through a case of water every 30 minutes or so. And we did it for 15 hours a day for 4 days filming. Inside the arena was easily 55C, hell the building was 45C minimum. And again, this building was literally ON the water, humidity was a bitch!
The building has since has AC put in.
The next filming was in Vegas in November. The pits were in tents in the parking lot, and most of the time it was below freezing. From one extreme to another, and I ended up running the pits/safety/testing area as being the only non-californian crew member (and, in fact, a brit) the cold didn't bother me a damned bit.
