Subject: A hosting region went bankrupt by not doing a mandatory block, families booked outside
In reply to: 's message, "NANS - Next year rethink wristbands. Is the policy in place so the host hotels are used? Doesn't seem to be an issue as the they sell out in minutes. ID is costly enough. A family of 6 can easily fit into a hotel for 4 yet they are forced to get 2 rooms or pay $200 a day in wristbands. Add that to the dress, wig, makeup, shoes, socks, flights, food, and instruction. What is that shirt say? "I don't dance i finance" . Getting harder every year. ID is not a sport for the average family" on 19:09:55 06/20/17 Tue

the block, and so it cost the hosts a lot more for the venue.

[> [> That was years ago. Families always like a good deal and to be close to the venue or at the host hotel. What ever caused the issue from years ago doesn't seem to be an issue now. Just think of all the resources spent on planning and executing on a wristband policy that might not be needed any longer. Maybe now it is time to re-evaluate the process. Our O doesn't require wristbands. -- No name, 14:03:37 06/21/17 Wed (NoHost/

[> [> It's my understanding our O does require wristbands now. They hinted at it last year, but it didn't sound like hinting when hotel registration opened in March. While many do prefer to stay close to the event, many will stay farther out to save $. The venue is provided at a special rate providing the organizers are able to fill a certain number of rooms. Without the block, there is no way to tell if the rooms are being sold to people affiliated with that event or by random vacationers. -- I understand the need for the wristbands. Don't see them going away any time soon., 14:23:57 06/21/17 Wed (cpe-65-189-55-125.cinci.res.rr.com/

[> [> [> While I don't understand the agreement between the convention center and the various hotels, even without wristbands, families all flocked to block hotels to get better deals. -- Committee kept adding hotels, 18:52:34 06/21/17 Wed (NoHost/

[> [> [> [> Makes sense to me. If they don't require all families to stay in a block hotel, people would wait in hopes that the block would fill up & then they could stay anywhere, so the initial block might not fill. But the committee then has an obligation to ensure enough blocked rooms for everyone. -- The rule wasn't put in place without soud reasons., 20:00:01 06/21/17 Wed (72-9-44-196.donet.com/
