NMH assigned us 8 dorms: London, Monadnock, Hubbard, Manchester, MacKinnon, Shea, Rikert and Crossley but we didn’t use 2, Hubbard and Rikert. We used 85 rooms and had others to work with, if needed.
The Online Registration process has continued to be a work in progress this year and proved to be very easy for me to use and keep track of Registrations. The wording of the instructions regarding the Registration process and PayPal was difficult to iron out. Some registrants had trouble with the SUBMIT and PayPal buttons. Judi and I have since been reworking the form and redeveloping the website for next year’s Registration procedure. The PayPal process has been relatively easy, with just a few glitches for some. The PayPal page wording/instructions have stumped a few registrants! I believe it’ll be much easier next year, having this one under our belts. I’d love to see the PayPal percentage even higher next year!
The early Registration fee incentive worked very well this year. We had 110 registrants in April, 31 in May and 14 in June. Having those numbers early helped our Planning team immensely.
I’d like to send a big thank you to Peggy for her help with decorations, greetings and directing on Registration day! She lightened my spirit and my load.
