Mr. Geri,
One more legitimate suggestion...It would be nice if you could put a little packet of info together for those people who pre-reg with stuff like directions to the venue, tentative schedule, rules addendum, contact info, etc. It wouldn't have to be anything special, and could even just be forwarded by email. I know a lot of that would be repetitive to what is on the website, but it also may help to answer some peoples ?'s ahead of time. Probably the most useful thing would be an idea of scheduling so people who didn't need to show up at the crack of dawn would know when exactly to try and make it for their event. Maybe, maybe not?

 No, you are correct, Lucian.  To be honest, I (and James) was running around like a madman trying to make sure we had everything.  Because of the success of the venture, about 3/4 of the stress will not be there for the next one.  Your suggestion is a VERY good one.  I will probably even run the "packet" by you, so you can proof it and offer suggestions.

 Well, all except the "scheduling" part.  There is just no way of doing this with any accuracy; and if it was off by 5 minutes, then several people would be complaining about it.  If we did do a schedule, then people would complain about there being "gaps where no one was grappling".  No win situation.

If an actual schedule would be too hard to stick to, you could at least include a "tentative" order of events so that one would know "hey they are doing the novice 202# division, so I am up next" or something like that. You could even include one of those disclaimer things that you lawyers like. Something to the effect of "the order of events may be changed at the discretion of the AGA and its officiating members"

 Yeah, it could've been publicized more; which we will do next time.  We did have a tentative schedule: juniors/women, old men, men's divisions.  We had short breaks in between each of those.  We intended on going novice, beginner, intermediate, advanced, through the weight classes, in the adult, but all the bracket rearranging messed that up.

I'm also bringing an amp and mike to the next one.

I'm serious about running the "packet" by you, too.
