Wow. Apparently words are out. So I guess if we have 8 who are interested to go and be able to commit, I can make the reservations.  Please reply to the message. I guess dates are flexible and as long as it works for all of us who are going, that will be fine.  Thoughts? 

Thanks Stephane for calling them.

Hi all,

I mentioned I was not going to arrange an event at Chic Chateau. They insist on a signed contract and deposit.

Some folks were disappointed, so I decided to actually call Chic Chateau and talk to someone about our group - see if they would work with us. I spoke with Brenda and Lizzie today.

Bottom line, if we make a reservation for 8 or more, we HAVE to pay a deposit to hold the date (Sunday, August 16th 2-4 PM). If I make a reservation for 7 or less, they can not promise that we will be able to have tea at all. Their business is apparently doing very well. So we get to play by their rules or not at all.

I have thrown my hands up with them. I give up! Joanna (or any other member), if you still want to organize an event, I will assist and you can talk with Chic Chateau. I will work on feeling very happy that their business is doing so well in this difficult economy.

Thanks for your time, ladies and gentlemen,
Sincerely,
Stephanie Thompson
