: Thanks for the update, Rich.
: Very informative, as usual.
But, of course!
: As for the Downtime Debate, what I want to know is, if 57% said the pace was just right,
WAIT! 85% of past Gatherers said that! ...
: where the heck are all those folks who complained to me that there was not enough time to visit with & get to know each other??? I heard it from just about every single person I talked to, yet when the questionnaires are completed...these voices disappear?
No, not at all. Many mentioned that in their comments. In fact, that worked both ways, some who voted "Too hectic," qualified that by saying it wasn't the pace, just that they'd have liked to have had a bit more time to meet. Perhaps you placed too much emphasis on these "complaints" in the scheme of things? I don't know ...
: Whadup wid that?
I see it as a matter of interpretation. When faced with a straight up choice, most think it is fine as is. At any rate, I think the solution we've come up with ought to suit everyone. These surveys have helped tremendously in knowing what the group wants, and we've tailored the program accordingly.
Great coup with Geneva, MMMM. I think that's what was wanted & will do quite nicely!
PS - I forgot to mention this AM, regarding raffle/auction donations, contact Marcia Meara regarding General Raffles, Kate Penman for Ariel's Auction. It's all on the Gathering Page!
