We looked at requiring everyone to step onto a scale with a large digital display as you approach the buffet, but when I tested it and the display said, "Only one person at a time, please" I got a little bit irritated. Finally, we thought about having Turbs and the crack security team check IDs for even and odd birthdates to eat on even and odd days, but realized that since some people are born later than the third or fourth day of the month, that might present too much of a challenge to train the ID checkers about "big numbers."

Seriously, we looked at multiple serving times or "shifts," but that messes up any entertainment, announcments, or other activities that we want to handle in the building. Multiple locations leave some people feeling as if they're at the kids' table at Thanksgiving and present even bigger logistic problems with entertainment and other events. We think we've come up with a solution that will help to move the line more quickly as well as deal with any weather situations we might have, such as rain or beating down sun.

It's important to realize, though, that we will not run out of food, and we're reconfiguring for considerably more seating space, so it's really not necessary to be there as soon as the doors open. If you show up at 6:00 or even 6:15 for a 5:30 meal, you are going to be fed and fed well.
Regarding buffet lines. Provided you at least have enough seating area for everyone, what works when I'm at my company's conference (3000+ people this year) is to just have multiple buffet lines. They put a buffet line about every 20 tables or so. This spreads the masses out so there's never usually a long wait.

An efficient busing staff helps to keep the tables clear and seats rotating so there's always plenty of room. In most cases a seat wasn't taken for more than 1/2 hour or so. Just long enough to eat, then back up to mingle and somebody else who came later can then use that spot.

One thing I thought was missing from the registration was the model. I only remember being asked brand.

I'd like to know how you'll be breaking up brands like this since Flagstaff (and her sister Rockwood) run the gambit of pop-ups to fifth wheels and all would have different needs regarding size, hookups, etc... Do you pull this information from elsewhere, or are you going to end up with a 15A popup plugged into 50A service next to a 50A fiver who's plugged into 30A, etc...?
