OK, you kids just settle down or we'll turn this RV around right now!
Just to get everyone up to date, here's where we are. In the just over three weeks that registration has been open, I've had about 350 to 400 e-mails. Some have had registration forms, some have had more than one. Some have included forms for the rally, tours, and service. Some have been just the registration, followed up days or weeks later by tour forms that have to be matched up. When we got back to the office on Monday from the Florida, Louisiana, and Texas tours, there were over 150 mailed registrations waiting on my desk.
We've been trying to process everything pretty much in order, but matching up e-mail dates and postmark dates is pretty much a losing proposition. Obviously we have to open and print out every e-mail attachment before we can record the information. We've recorded all of the information on about 150 registrations so far, but early on we realized the problem with sending out a confirmation without realizing that there were also tour registrations either in the e-mail queue or in the mail pile that we hadn't yet discovered, so some people's confirmations have missed a tour. We're getting that fixed.
If you mailed in a check, those were sent to Corporate Accounting late this afternoon. (Kelly will shoot me when she sees all of those coming in at month- and quarter-end!). We've processed credit card payments on about 50 registrations so far (some will need to have tours added) and are holding off on doing more of those until we're comfortable that we've matched up all of the tours.
Once we have your information recorded, you'll be getting an e-mail that shows name(s), address, phone number, any additional people in your party, and tour selections, and we'll ask that you let us know if any of the information is incorrect.
We're leaving in the morning for Gettysburg, but will be continuing to record information while we're on the road. We'll keep you updated as we go.
See you in Goshen!
