SOLD OUT! (For the record, it took 7 minutes.)
It’s time, folks. There are now 100 spots open for Hutchmoot 2012. Let the games begin! We’re lining up a great weekend, and we’ll see you on September 23.
Send us an email to be added to the waiting list.
I think I’m in! Can’t wait!
We’re laughing at that almost as much as at the fact that WE GOT IN!
See you in September…
YIKES! There are actually two extra registrations available. I just sent an email, but in my haste to register my sister and me, I hit the 2 button twice. I am SO sorry! Can I fix this quickly for someone? Not to mention I can’t afford four tickets.
Loren, I’ll take your tickets! brianandbethstipp at gmail
Brian, let me see what the higher-ups have to say, first, but if it’s a go, you were the first to ask me for them. I’ll keep you posted.
wow I can’t believe it sold out that fast.
My wife and I really REALLY want tickets if any go for sale.
Can’t imagine what it looked like watching that from The Rabbit Room end – 7 minutes! I hope the email I got is solid confirmation. I’ve never even been to Nashville. Totally stoked about this!
Fwhew! Not convinced I have tickets. How can I be assured of my heavenly registration? How do I know for sure that I’ve been chosen? and was I chosen, or did I do the choosing? I’m so confused.
Ha, Jim! You made me smile.
Also hit the button too many times and it wouldn’t allow me to delete, so in my haste and desperation, I did purchase 3 individual tickets and meant to purchase only 1. I don’t think I will have a problem getting takers! Rabbit Room, please tell me if you want them back. If not, I will be happy to sell them and not for a profit!
I hope an email confirmation is confirmation indeed
Abby, Me and my friend Chris will grab those if they are available!
I want to cry…I just got home. And now I want to cry. Can I get into a wait list so that my hopes can be dashed when it doesn’t work out?
Abby – a friend of mine will take the two tickets since he did not register in time!
I’m the friend…Chris. Almost crying.
my email, by the way, is email@example.com
Just in queso.
I tried and tried and would love an extra ticket anyone may have inadvertantly purchased!
In all fairness and with great sadness over dashing so many hopes, Aaron and Chris, they are yours!
My email is firstname.lastname@example.org
Abby, I shall email you directly!
I’m sorry, everybody else. (I’m Canadian, I’m required to apologize when things work out for me.)
Well, my ticket(s) were in my cart but I did the same thing and ended up with two instead of one ~ went ahead and purchased them anyway as I couldn’t get the extra one out of there ~ then in communication with Pete found out it had sold out while waiting for his reply. So I have no idea if mine were submitted too late or if I did in fact purchase two tickets. So if I did get two, I have an extra to pass on to someone else. Guess it will take some kind of confirmation email to find out which it is!
That’s ok Abby. If someone has two tickets my friend Steve & Deborah will take them off your hands.
KRF, please let me know if you want to sell an extra!
No worries Aaron, aye.
Folks, please note that if you are swapping registrations with others, we need to be made aware of that explicitly. Please do NOT do this if you accidentally purchased extra tickets. Those extra purchases raised us above our ticket limit and those spots are not available to others.
Further note: since I see there has been quite a bit of trading going on, tears even, we’ll try to accomodate those involved. But please contact us directly to ensure this. Email me at email@example.com if you have any questions or concerns about your registration.
How does one get on a waiting list?
Are you starting a waiting list yet? If so, I’d like to be on it for two tickets, please!
Email to firstname.lastname@example.org to be added to the waiting list.
Dear Mr. Pete,
Rabbits on computers. Rabbits with credit cards. Rabbits trying to crowd into the Hutch. Rabbits cutting deals with each other. Rabbits squeezing under the gate.
Thanks for working so hard (dare I say, “Counting Rabbits”?)!
WAHOO! And I’m bringing 3 first-timers. Such a good feeling.
Eureka! Getting ready to confabulate or is to chinwag.
Excited for chinwag and being around all the creatives.
So much for my Christmas present. That was fast.
Yippee! I’m in. I didn’t make it in time last year.
Maybe it’s time to create more slots?
I’m uber-excited myself. Very much looking forward to meeting y’all!
Wow. Popular. It’s like Black Friday. Congrats to everyone who’s going. I think I’ll put together a mini Hutchmoot with my book clubbers so we don’t feel left out.
Third time’s a charm! Missed it the first two years. This time, YAY! Do I sound excited?
Well, I am. Prayers of thanks like incense ascending.
It’s almost comical to watch the celebration of those who are IN, and the grief and heartache for those who are OUT. I talked to several folks during the 2011 Moot why I strongly felt that expansion was necessary. I wonder if a few perspectives have been changed with more people than ever not able to get IN. I also sympathize with the organizers and not wanting to take too many risks. However… #TheresNoThiefLikeFear
Well, the expansion happened even though unintended ~ but regardless of any expansion plans, present or future, there will always be a limit to how many can be accommodated without sacrificing the purpose and intimacy of the event. I for one don’t mind the registration cap ~ knowing that those who should be there will be there. And those that aren’t will be there another year. I loved Jess’ idea of having a mini-Hutchmoot ~ and can visualize little groups of Roomers scattered across the country all meeting at the same time. Wow.
We’ll be there too! Looking forward to seeing everyone in September!
That’s pretty much my point. I have heard several say something like “preserving the integrity of the intimacy.” But that’s “insider” language. I understand that expansion still doesn’t mean everyone can be accommodated. And yes expansion means some things are lost (though I would argue that more is gained). To me personally – just my opinion – it would have been nice to see moderate *intentional* growth. (And I would carry this opinion even if I was IN.)
Woweeee, sold out and oversold in seven minutes! I did not see that one coming. I guess everyone wants to be a part of such a good thing!
Pete, Andrew, Thomas, Evie, and all you other Hutchmoot masterminds: you guys are in my prayers as you plan and scheme.
As someone who didn’t make it the first two years — i.e. not an “insider” — I am (and have been) totally on board with preserving the feel of Hutchmoot as a small gathering. There’s a whole lot that goes into this event. Not only would bulking it up turn it into something it probably wasn’t intended to be, but the organizers already have a heck of a job ahead of them as it is; expansion might well turn it into an operational nightmare and suck the joy right out of it.
I was quite disappointed not to have gotten in for the other two, but it was a joy to know that others were going to experience it and I wouldn’t have wanted to be stuffed in at the expense of what was happening there.
(the aforementioned opinions are my own and do not necessarily reflect those of Hutchmoot Enterprises, Inc. Ltd. International)
Maybe the popularity calls for two ‘Moots a year, like a Spring ‘Moot and Fall ‘Moot. Not that it matters to me being that with two small children any “extra” vacationing cash goes to something the family can all go to, usually in Frankenmuth. But it is a thought. I have them every once in a while. Maybe that’s why I have a headache.
