Happy Holidays to everyone and thank you so much for being a part of the Windy City Explorers! As you see from the Drake Event, there seems to be continuing demand for these terrific events right through the winter season! Although the Drake event is now full, keep a careful watch in the coming days as I get ready to post another event at a different Magnificent Hotel! I really regret having to post a limit on attendance, but the indoor events have stricter allowances on how many people we can accommodate. So if you missed the Drake event, stay tuned for the next one and be sure to respond right away to get in before the event fills!
For logistical and management reasons, I will have NEITHER an automatic waiting list nor "Maybe" RSVP's. The waiting list and tentative replies are just too hard to manage. For example, the waiting list automatically bumps people up into the Yes category, even if they have already made other plans. Then it becomes really difficult to confirm each person's attendance. As an alterntaive, if the event is full, feel free to RSVP "No" and include a comment that you'd like to come if a spot opens up. I will manage these comments on a first-come, first served basis in the event that somebody drops out.
Merry Christmas and Happy New Year to all!
