Just realize the only way to edit it is to start the thread so I own the first post...
Please post to the FAQ: Questions about the National Meet
Can we create a FAQ for the national meet so members attending the meet know what to expect, what to bring, how to prepare, how to act, etc? It's nice to have all the information in one place. This way people don't repeatedly ask the same questions. They also don't have to read through 41 pages of stuff to find the answers, and may not even know what questions to ask.
The Registration FAQ
is a good start. We could do a more complete job.
We could take this opportunity to update the Meeting suggestions
thread with the goal of ultimately developing a generic meeting FAQ. Actually, it makes more sense to create a new thread here for this. (Or maybe just rename this one and hijack it.) The Meeting suggestions thread is more for planning meets. We should have a thread specifically for people attending meets. It makes sense to develop a FAQ specifically for the national meets. Each meet has its own rules and policies, so the stuff in the national thread might not apply to specific meets.
The rule at the NYC meets is that the first person to mention name tags has to bring them. (It's based on the same principle as the game of chicken--someone will get nervous, flinch, and bring it up.) So... If we need someone to pour through suggestions and edit them... Tag! I'm it. Of course, if someone else wants to volunteer...
