3. Limit the number of shots you take -- I'd say don't take more than 200 all day. If they are well thought out and well executed, you'll save yourself a lot of time in post process. You do not have to shoot pictures of everyone there or of everything that happens. They seemed to have asked for a representational sample that will show what the event looked like. No one will look at more than a couple dozen pictures of the event, no matter how invested or interested. I wouldn't give them more than 50 finished pictures, at most.
I tend to shoot more and be selective before PP.
This is to one's taste, but I agree with Dylan. I shoot JPG+RAW, I shoot more than I need, I use the JPGs to rate shots and only PP the keepers in RAW. Speed on the front end and power on the back end -- that combination has served me well.
I agree with distant.star's take on limiting the number of finished pictures. Hell, I'm doing this for free!
