One lesson I learned was not to overcommit, with fewer registrations I was out virtually all the money on the video game rental, and I had to make up for several dinners at the banquet. It really was a shame because the preparations were even smoother than the first two years. I had a separate hospitality room just for the games, and I had talked the hotel into letting us use the restaurant for the evening festivities. Most of you really did miss out on a good time.
