Dear Fellow Gilwellians:
One of our biggest goals each year is to increase our registration numbers and each year we think we have. The problem lies in the fact that we are aware that there are many Gilwellians who do attend, but thru unknown reason forget to register. They are then not counted in! We see this happen every year. Perhaps with all of the excitement of the weekend, it’s simply an oversight… and I’d like to think so.
This year our committee has decided to return to our wrist band policy in an effort to ensure that every Gilwellian in attendance is counted in. You may think this is a lot of work to account for the missed few but you’d be surprised at the number we suspect are not registering. And as you know, our costs continue to increase so there is the lost revenue to be concerned with.
So this year “BAND YOUR BEADS!”…No need to put your wrist band on your wrist…simply attach them to your beads! That way all will see that, YES, you are a “beaded” Gilwellian and YES you’ve registered!
Our registration team will be mailing out the wrist bands to the contingent registrars for all who have pre-registered in the coming weeks so they may get them to their members. All others will receive them at Registration on arrival Friday and Saturday of Reunion weekend.
See you in September!
Yours in Scouting!
2013 Gilwell Reunion Committee Chair
Early submissions have revealed a couple of minor errors on the spreadsheet, plus the need for clarification when you’re recording contingent members orders on the Individuals spreadsheet.
The updated spreadsheet is attached, and I have asked it to be posted to the web site.
Please note that if, for example, you are ordering a mug (at $5.00) for a member, then you only put a 1 (numerical one) in the box, signifying one mug; or 2 if that individual is ordering two mugs. Do not put the dollar value (i.e. $5.00) as this corrupts the spreadsheet.
If you do find the spreadsheet difficult to use and would prefer just to use just a summary page, please let me know and I will provide.
Kindest Regards,Scouter Stewart
