    Default Suggestions for STP 2008

    What suggestions would you have for next year? (Lowering the summit is not a possibility)

    At the dinner it would be nice to have stick on name badges.

    As we are hiking have pin on badges like for runners so we can have our name on the back of our pack for others to see.

    The shirts that were given out in the "goodie bags" should be synthetic so we can wear them while we hike.

    I wore mine anyway but I definatley agree.


    Also the dinner was awesome but the Turkey did make me sleepy.

    Considering how sweaty I got, I don't think cotton versus synthetic mattered for me. My synthetic t-shirt was so wet I could have wrung it out. It might have dried 5 minutes faster than a cotton shirt.

    I agree, name tags for at least the after party would be nice.

    The turkey dinner was amazing, but that line was killer. Seems like a catering company should only make that mistake once.

    I just put STP8 in the calendar for next year.

    We talked about adding a PayPal payment option. I think that should be looked into. I just sold a few old books on eBay and have $50 sitting in my PayPal account. To me that's like found money and sending it over to MWO is a no brainer.

    I second the PayPal option. I had a few people ask if they accepted PayPal and when I said no, they didn't give. Not that they couldn't give with a credit card but, like Bill said, to people with an account, that's like found money.

    When giving to a nonprofit I do not like using a credit card as they lose 3%. On $60,000 that is $1,800 of lost money.

    True, but the willingness to donate more via credit card probably offsets that amount many times over.

    I'm sure the stats support the use of credit card donations. Its just so much more convenient to the donor you can't risk giving that up.

    Red face Seek The Peak beer glasses

    I think a great idea would be seek the peak beer glasses. After the climb we can fill it with the 6288 stout and enjoy. What a great story behind the 6288 stout and how the observatory had so much to do with the label on the bottle. So all know if you buy the Tuckermans 6288 stout,Mount washington observatory gets a part of the proceeds.

    What IS the story behind the 6288 stout?
    Or do I need to go buy one to read the back of the bottle?
    So sorry I missed the STP07 - sounds, from the forum, like it was quite the event. I can only get up there a couple times a year, at best, and have a hard time working it into the schedule, but I think I'm going to try harder NEXT year . . .
