There was nothing to drink for anyone under 21.
The port o potties were disgusting.
People need to listen when an announcement is made.
These three are a good start. The club has water jugs, I wanted to fill my water bottle and there was none to be found. So a couple of water jugs or a cooler of bottled water at the very least.
In the past we've had a separate porta-potty in the grass. We can't count on the park supplied on in the parking lot one it seems.
To get people to listen to announcements you need to work on the direction and/or volume of the speakers. I was sitting between the CTP tee and the mini golf course and didn't hear a word coming from the shelter because the speakers were turned away from where I was. There should be sound directed in multiple directions since people are all over the place.
I felt the CTP was cut off early personally. I know several people that had tickets they didn't get to use. They weren't aware it was being cut off because they didn't hear the announcements or whatever, but some did simply show up too late. Besides, since it took so long to get cards ready for the second round there a was still time to let more people throw. That being said, I realize you have to draw the line somewhere so if the second round card prep had gone quicker the timing was probably about right. So perhaps a more definitive cut off time needs to be posted for people to see rather than expecting them to hear the announcement. That time could be determined the day of or even during the CTP contest and posted so word could spread instead of relying solely on the PA
We got lucky with the weather this year and over-all things were great. Other than the above ideas the only thing I would have changed would have been the direction of the food line. It should have started outside the shelter and hit the chili first then ended with desserts and toppings. That was just clumsy because people that wanted cheese and onions or dessert had to bust through the line to get to that table.
Other than the water and bathrooms these are all minor things in my opinion. So for future events the two main things in my mind are making sure other beverages are available and the bathroom availability is acceptable.
Great job everyone. We got extremely lucky with the weather and got to enjoy each other's company on a beautiful day in the middle of an otherwise roller-coaster of a winter, which is now on a major downswing once again. What a difference a day makes around here....
