Breakfast planning, registration, no-shows
We started online pre-registration before COVID to help the restaurant plan. They were flexible and didn't charge us if we didn't meet the numbers we advised. AS of COVID, the restaurant requires a minimum of 75 attendees to plan food & staff. In addition we must commit to a final number of participants one week in advance which includes paying for the committed amount. The deadline to register is one week in advance by 3pm. Our policy is show up or pay as the club doesn't have funds to cover no-shows. This has made the process uncomfortable for many, especially the one trying to orchestrate the process
(Nancy). To alleviate some of the work, we are reducing the number of breakfasts in 2024 to mid-January through February, six times. In addition, we will no longer print an agenda. All notices will go through the website.
