I think that in this sentence you want <-vIS> instead of <-DI'>. Look at the
first definition given for <-DI'>: "as soon as". So a sentence of the form
<X-DI', Y> really means that first X happens, and then Y happens, which is
not what you want.
The problem is in the vagueness of the English "when", which sometimes means
"when", and sometimes really means "while".

maj. And good suffix order - there is often a strong temptation to put the
type 7 suffix before the type 6. If you resisted the temptation, good. If it
never even occurred to you, even better.

The prefix on <jeS> should agree with the object: <bo->. And since <jeS> is
almost certainly a verb that cannot take an object (how do you "participate
something"), it really should be <Su->
> pIj <MUSH>Daq vIjeS
Same comment about the prefix: <jIjeS>.

I'd definitely use <-qa'> on the second verb here, and probably use <-ta'>
on the first.
