RE: [DMCForum] Registration

Hi All,


I just wanted to shed some light on the not-being-allowed-to-register
scene that I mentioned a couple of days ago.  Turns out that what my
wife saw was someone who showed up 10 minutes before dinner, who had not
registered for any events at the show, and who just expected to simply
pay and be seated for an event he knew was registration required.  Kind
of amazing, considering that folks had around 6 months to register in


Glad to hear that it wasn't just someone being turned away because they
were stuck in traffic!

Subject: [DMCForum] Registration took us at least 15-20 minutes to put everything away, shut 
down computers, etc... Even so I left the dinner table twice to 
assist people who got stuck in traffic. 
So there is no way that on Thursday anyone got turned away at 5:50 
pm. All of the registration people were still sitting while there 
were hundreds of people grabbing their food. 
The more feedback we have on registration the better. I am a firm 
believer that those who went online and registered ahead of time had 
no problem getting their badges, free t-shirts and goodie bags. There 
were a few who pre registered and I didn't have the record of, but we 
quickly printed their badges and went on with registration. At times 
there were lines, but I printed 511 badges early that week and well 
over 300 of those people were expected to be there on Thursday, so 
there will be lines and we rushed to help everyone as quickly as 
possible. There were a few people who wanted to register after we 
closed registration, but they weren't going to do dinner on Thursday, 
so we asked them to register the next morning, but as far as I know 
everyone who wanted to have dinner on Thursday talked to us and had 
no problems, we even had people eat dinner and pay us later! It is 
also important to know that Ken has to guess how many people that 
will be fed, so if everyone registers early, there is no running out 
of food or late registration issues. Those that registered early and 
told ken they couldn't make it, I canceled the registration and Ken 
refunded their money, so like the hotel, there is no reason not to 
register in advance.
I have a number of funny stories, but I won't mention in public 
because I don't want to hurt one person or another who asked "stupid 
questions". You all know we are volunteers and do it for the 
community but handling 500+ registrations is not an easy job, given 
the number, I think it ran smoothly although there is room for 
improvement, thanks to the awesome group that was working together.

Anyway, Dave... thanks for giving us the heads up...

> Uhh!? I worked that registration booth on Thursday until 
approximately 6:20 registering everyone who came in. No one was 
refused unless they hadn't paid in advance and the dinner was sold 
out. I don't think we had that problem Thursday, but Saturday I know 
we sold the dinner out and had to turn a few people away. Maybe 
that's what you heard about?
