interesting really......

Believe me, if you are responsible for feeding a group, whether it be a potluck, a host-prepared meal, or a catered meal, you notice. Lots of other folks will notice as well.

Personally, I like the idea of bracelets, just like a music festival. Pre-registered attendees get non-removable bracelets. If food supplies warrent, non-pre-registered guests can pay for a bracelet on the spot. If food supplies are limited, late comers are simply out of luck.

I am going to suggest the bracelet idea for the 2007 Texas Vintage Rally. With an expected 100 rigs and at lest one catered meal, we will have to set up some controls. We certainly will not recognize everyone by sight. I fully expect that some non-pre-registered folks will appear.

i'm still laughing at the poll options...
seems you need a 'rally sheriff-bad guy'

hey instead of the meal fee,
how about just hire me,
i saw great examples

so i'm trained now...
2 be a great bad guy...
it's easy with the wbcci training program
offered at this years international !
treating people badly was an art form.
and i'm a quick learner.


all of the true things that i am about to tell you are shameless lies. l.b.j.

we are here on earth to fart around. don't let anybody tell you any different. k.v.

the CORRECT answer is "D"

Long before I started this thread, the planning committee discussed the scenarios that have played out at past rallies and potential for new situations to arise. Many of the comments that have surfaced here are the same ones that have been discussed.

It was decided after much discussion, just as polarized as we've seen here over the last 26 hours, that the best way to handle it is to offer meal ticket name badges on a first come, first served basis to those wanting to join in and participate fully. They are limited to the number of "extra" catered meals we are willing and our budget is able to handle.

Thank you all for your input.
