Still scheduled for the evening of the 25th. Just some good old fashioned dragging of the feet by the organizers.

With the GC, I'm not surprised ::)

Hope to share details soon.

Looking forward.

Anyone have a rsvp system recommendation then?

The real problem is that anyone can rsvp for a free event, but then you'll have a lot of no-shows as they have no skin in the game and meanwhile other people trying to rsvp will get locked out while the event will be half empty.

even if u don't rely on the rsvp, at least u ll know if we are talking about 50 or 300 people... if it is the latter then maybe getting a bigger place would be best? I have some cheap suggestions if u r interested (i know u r looking for free...)

Actually I have 110 AMEX $10 GCs I can hand back at the door...not a bad idea to have people pay $10 via Amazon and get refunded like that at the door.

Problem is that excludes those without credit cards or amazon accounts.

If they are young and want to learn, why not?

Absolutely!
For some people, CC's need to be avoided.

Unless your looking for a way to get rid of those gift cards... I would say to just make people put a little effort into rsvp'ing like say they have to send a fax with there name on it or fill out a long form online you pretend you were a rebate company......it doesn't need to be very difficult but it shouldn't be one click it email
