    Nicely done Sam! The trip was well planned even with the "snafu" on the bus before we left lol but I am petitioning for the trip to be renamed because how can it be a "ski trip" when the company is too CHEAP and decide to cancel skiing because it's two hours away??? They KNEW how far it was when they planned the trip so how you not even allow people to sign up for it until 3 hours before the bus to go there was suppose to leave and then have the nerve to say it was cancelled because only 19 people signed up and you wanted at least 30!!! if the sign up sheet was out there the first night with allll the other activities they would have had 30 people so don't feed me that BS! they either didn't want to pay gas for a two hour trip or they simply discriminated and assumed black people wouldn't have wanted to ski...no matter the reason I'm highly upset because that's why I came on a SKI TRIP! but that's no fault of Sam.. I'll never attend anything organized by Eastern Lights Getaways!

    FYI, I didn't hear from anyone about any Vegan requests, so I went ahead and placed the order for dinner. The menu will be as follows: Baked Chicken, Rice & Peas, mixed vegetables & corn bread. Remember to bring your own beverages (non alcohol or otherwise) for yourself for the trip. Thanks, and see you all tomorrow! Bus leaves at 5:30pm sharp!!! :)

    @Sam, Situation: You make your deposit, selected two in room, enter the name of the person who will be your roommate but the roommate flakes. You now have a new roommate, who will be making a deposit and will be selecting two in room listing you as the roommate. What should be done to make sure that first person that make the deposit and the second person that make the deposit are sharing the same room.

    What happens in the event that there is inclement weather? I noticed that there is a no refund policy. I'm thinking of rooming with two other people is it recommended that they pay separately or put the all three deposits on one card?

    Thanks,

    Nikki
