I tried signing up for Lenexa. At 7:02 I got the FIRST error message of the evening. At 7:03 I was on the phone with the KCBS office. I signed up SIX times during a 23 minute period with Kelly Cain on the phone with me the entire time, still receiving the error message. (The office can only do so much, no blame there.) Brent tried signing me up TWICE from his workplace, he got the same message. We each then tried again and it was full.
If the issue was taken care of in 11 minutes then what happened? We'll never know. One thing I DO know is that I filled out the form on KCBS.us and the response was emailed this evening. 50% off the entry to another Sams event. Yeah, because $125 will cover the expense of going to Baton Rouge! Far cry from the 2 1/2 ride to Des Moines!
Sour grapes? Nah. Disappointed. UNDERSTATEMENT. There could have and should have been a better resolution to this fiasco.
I will be at Lenexa, cheering on my buddies and Slabs of Approval! I hope someone starts up a potluck!
