Hi Everybody,
A quick update for you.

1) The trip is at 159 people at the moment, so we have about 15 spots left. When we get down to 5 spots, I am going to have to make a waiting list and then play tetris with the rooms. But rest assured, I will do my best to fit everyone in.

To check most of your details, apart from the gear rental, scroll down this post.
http://www.yetijapan.com/forum/index.php?topic=9274.0

2) Hoodies and polos deadline is today. After that, if you want one, I’ll have to ask the printer and play it by ear

3) As we are getting closer, I’ll be putting up messages from time to time with important stuff.
Probably Friday, I’ll release the gear rental stuff for you guys to check and room assignments will be done after Monday, along with meal times.

4) At the moment, I have to use a number of rooms that don’t have an ensuite bathroom, but are very close to the toilet and onsen. If you are ok with being placed in them, they’ll be 1000 yen cheaper. Could you get in touch with me if you are ok with that? At the moment, the available rooms can hold up to 4 (x2), 6 (x2) and 8 people.

Hi Everyone,
As the winter break is coming up, work is winding down for most of us and some of us will be heading off home. Infact, some already are home and I will be off next week too. So I thought I’d give you an update about the event before that. I will be checking things whilst I am away though, so I should respond pretty quickly.

1) The trip now has 120 RSVPs which is HUGE. I have booked some rooms at a hotel 2-3 mins walk from the main hotel and can now accommodate 160 people (up from 140).

2) The printer of the hoodies has asked to do the printing in two batches so that he can get everything done in time for Jan 20th. So I will be sending him the current order of hoodie and polos on Tuesday. If you want me to print it after Jan 11th,  LET ME KNOW ASAP.
Please check above for what I have noted for you

Just scroll down and see your order. Anything with a * is being sent.

3) If you have changes to anything, let me know. I will not be able to check posts that have been edited. So if you do edit them, let me know by tagging me

Have a great holiday and I’ll see you in January!
