    Isn't fridge opening based on temperature, which would make a schedule pointless.

    I think the best that you can expect is an estimate, or you'll get a ton of people waiting for the exact time. Even if you say "it needs to get down below fridge temperatures" (5c) then you'll get a ton of people camping by the door waiting for second the gauge to drops below 5.1.

    General status announcements are good to have, including "15m until it gets closed, grab beer/food now", but I think another addition would be if there was a maximum it could stay closed, and if it's still above temperature after say 2h closed, there's a short 10-15m time to grab/stash stuff, then closed again.

    Not sure what to do about the first day or two when everyone is bringing in a ton of stuff, as much as most food will recommend being refrigerated, I'm sure there's leeway so it won't turn into food poisoning instantly. Ultimately you can't fully accommodate everyone. I tend to nuke all my food good and proper anyway to be sure, getting the squits isn't fun for me or anyone else

    That said, next lan isn't in summer, and if we have a really cold lan just store stuff outside or in your car.

    It is indeed shut on temperature, once it gets too high we have to shut it otherwise people would get food poisoning.

    We were also barred from the fridge for the duration of the barbeque, which would've been nice to know beforehand.

    Hi Dex

    Totally agree this was suboptimal, we only discovered that this would need to be the case (H&S requirements) when the caterers arrived on site so you had about as much warning as we did! Def something we will be looking into in the future on how better to manage the knock on effects!
