Response to 1st Timer's Thoughts on HP Konvention


Thanks for your suggestions.

The 48/50 process was actually an improvement (at host Jim Sutton's suggestion) over earlier efforts in which to 48/50 completers just stood up en masse and didn't even come forward for a photo op. It will be refined over the next conventions.

Flagging the problem with the raffle is actually also a tribute to Jim's planning. Previously, we always struggled with food service (sometimes taking as much as two hours between the start and end of the lines). The solution had been to occupy the time with the raffle in which "everybody wins." But with the fast food service the raffle seemed a bit out of place.

That will definitely be reviewed in the next conventions. My knee jerk reaction is that the raffle should highlight a few great items (and the kiddie bags) and do away with the time consuming "everybody wins" process (which has been going on almost since the start of the conventions).
