Here are the final results in answer to question #1: If you attended the Reunion in Dover on 7-8 May 2010, rate your satisfaction with the Reunion in general. 7 of the 72 who responded did not attend. 90.5% of those who did, said they were "Very Satisfied." 8% said they were "Satisfied."
We had one unidentifiable respondent who checked "Very Dissatisfied" (entered on 6/28 @ 9:28 am). While I'm reporting it as checked, I am suspicious that the boxes checked were not intended. Every item rating was checked "Very Dissatisfied," but all of the comments entered on that form were positive - none negative?! For example, under the question about the Souvenir Cap, the rating was checked "Very Dissatisfied," but the comment entered was "Nice touch."
1 Make sure to announce low key dates for those of us who might make the effort to attend from outside the KDOV area.
2 There were a lot of people there that I did not know.
3 Not necessarily better, but perhaps a little less often, despite our aging population.
4 How about scheduling the Reunion annually with the stipulation that if "X" number of paid reservations are not received by "Y" date a "low key" version will be held with a cut off of "Z" number of registrants.
5 Doesn't matter to me. If I'm able I plan to attend them all regardless.
6 Great idea, however will try to attend the mini.
7 I'll probably attend whatever happens.
8 Continue having low key dinners but with a similar format.
9 I would enjoy just the Friday night "crew meetings" every year or two. They are easier to plan and more laid back.
10 Mini reunions for areas of the country, i.e Dover, Florida. etc.
11 Having them too often will lose impact
12 Sure, Lets go for it.
