Yes 5 or more Yes Yes Yes Good Good Good Did Not Use Good Good Good Good Good Good Good Good Good Good photo booth/big bounce house/face painting Star being up higher so more people can see them water stations Raffle: A better way to announce raffle winners instead of the long line around a small board. Announce the DS prize winners during announcements like 2015. Several people were not told about the difference in the blue raffle ticket (for DS people) at check-in table. Music: While it was fun to have something to listen to during the activities, at times it was far to loud for anybody on that side of the park. During the dinner it was nearly impossible for anybody that had set there chairs over there to eat because the music was up so high-- yet there was not enough seating/area anywhere else for people to move. Online payment: It did not work several times. The "Donate" button is confusing for some people who want to pay but weren't automatically taken to the payment screen or had to go back later to try to pay again. Definitely Yes Maybe have a poster board at the check-in table with the group photo times posted. Many people were unsure of their group photo time and couldn't hear the DJ on the check-in side of the park. Which I understand goes against what I said about the DJ needing to be quieter- but he was already too loud from his parking lot side and still couldn't be heard on check-in side.

Yes 2, 3, or 4 Yes Yes Yes Excellent Excellent Good Did Not Use Good Excellent Excellent Good Excellent Excellent Excellent Excellent Excellent Good The individual recognition of the Stars. The raffle prizes. The atmosphere/friendliness of everyone The raffle drawing was kind of hectic and disorganized. Possibly requiring people to put their names on the ticket might speed it up, as it takes a while to go through the numbers. Of course there will still be some that forget to do so, so having the matching ticket should still be required. But maybe that will decrease the time for people trying to match the numbers. I spent very little time over there, but the "Angry Birds" slingshot game didn't seem to work well for most. The ball kept hitting the slingshot and bounced back and several times hit the person in the face. Again, I wasn't there much, but that was my observation the short time I was watching. I appreciate the extra time this year, but it still felt very rushed. I was just curious if there was a reason it was on Sunday as opposed to Saturday. I feel that many people rush to leave, probably so they can get home and get ready for the week ahead. Definitely Yes As always, thanks to the committee members, volunteers, and especially Shella for all the time and effort they put into making this event a success.
