Improve Event Edit Form GH2777/2805/2760
(1) Re-order, update and add fields on the event edit form to make it easier for volunteers to complete.
(2) Add validation that at least one "room" was selected for the Tacoma Program Center.
(3) Set the Event Setup and Departure datetimes to default to the Start datetime - 30 min and End datetime + 30 min when adding an activity to the Seattle and Tacoma Program Center calendars. For editing an event, "remember" the time difference between Setup and Start datetime AND between End and Departure datetime and use those as defaults for editing the Start and/or End datetime.

Steve's Response via Ticket:
I think you're right that 30 is better. I believe that feature is meant to be a reminder primarily for external / non staff people making reservations to allow time for room setup as needed.
The Setup and Departure datetimes default to the Start and End datetimes when adding an activity to the Seattle and Tacoma Program Center calendars. We can make this -15 and +15 min, respectively, but it might be better (more common) if that were -30 and +30 min. Thoughts?
We also need/want to add to this idea for editing an event. It would be something like remembering the time difference between Setup and Start datetime AND between End and Departure datetime so that we can sue those as defaults for editing the Start and/or End datetime.

SET UP TIMES and BREAKDOWN TIMES should auto-populate to mirror the event date as a default (at least for staff entering events, if it can be permission-based). Default should be 15 minutes on either side of event start and end. Thank you.
