Hi everyone here on DIS and Happy Thanksgiving!

The FEE signup are in and I am working on splitting us into 2 groups. I was going to complete this today, but thought I better wait until Monday as I know some people are traveling or have company in for the weekend and may not have looked at the boards this weekend. My plan is to put the names into a hat and draw them at random to select the groups unless anyone else has a different suggestion.

If you signed up for the FEE I just need to know if you want to participate in both groups and if you have anyone on the list that you want to make sure is also in you group (I know we have some families and friends traveling together).

So far I have me (Florida Fun), DuckWindow, and diannacarole in for both groups. There will be one group on the first sheet of the spreadsheet and the second group on the second sheet of the spreadsheet.

Beth

Since it looks like there are still less than 20 cabins participating I'd love to also stay on both lists.

Hope everyone had a wonderful Thanksgiving.

I think I'll just stick with one list - this is my first FEE and I still have no clue what I'm going to do yet!

I think I will stay with both groups also. The last cruise we participated with a group FE I think we had around 50 cabins and only 1 sea day, so this is still a "small" group to me and we have plenty of sea days.
I hope everyone had a great Thanksgiving and survived Black Friday.

I'm thinking we'll stay in both groups too. My kids are really excited about it. :-)

Hi everyone,

I hope you are all rested from Black Friday. My shopping started at 5am, but I only hit one store and made it back to bed by 6am.

For the FEE, I have the following people confirmed at participate in both groups: FloridaFun, Duck Window, diannacarole, Dawncala, DisMom73, and KPetty725.
If there is anyone I missed or anyone else that wants to stay in both groups, please let me know today and tomorrow I will post the completed lists with who is in what group.

Thank you and safe travels to anyone who is traveling home still or that has family traveling.

Beth

I guess I'm not understanding the stay in both thing.

To make it possible for everyone to participate in the FEE, we agreed to split the people into 2 groups if we got more than 15 cabins. That way it would still be a smaller number of gifts to make or get for those in just one group.

However, some people expressed in interest in still giving to eveyone on the list, so they would be part of both groups.

Let me know if you want to be in one group or both groups.

I hope this made sense.

Beth

OK, that just doesn't make sense to me if the point of splitting was to make the numbers smaller for those who wanted it to be more manageable. So with 70 people participating and we split in two groups that's roughly 35 per group. If 30 people decide they want to be in both groups then there are 50 in both groups. But maybe I'm still not understanding it correctly?

If you're only wanting to be in one group, then you'll just give/receive from the members of that group. Since we weren't that far above the 15 cabin limit we set, most of the people can be on both lists and there will still be fewer than 15 cabins to exchange with. :-) Some of us are just over achievers and want to give/receive with more people!!

And some of us are poor single parents and hoping to be able to afford even half the list, and appreciate you splitting the group in two very muchly.

OK, well I just misunderstood. I waited to join until I was sure the group would split because it's my first time and I thought 8-9 cabins would be manageable. But I suppose another 3-4 cabins won't make too much difference.

Hi Everyone,

Sorry there was some confusion about what would happen when the group was split. It works out that there are 14 cabins in group 1 and 13 cabins in group 2. I hope that is still okay with everyone. If not, please let me know and we can all discuss how we would like to do it.

For right now I have the groups as follows:

Group 1:
The Great Cornholeo
Sunshine Cruiser
I Heart Mickey
Kimbo71
Dolores Rader
Betsy2010
FloridaFun (2 cabins)
DuckWindow
Dianacarole
Dawncala
Dismom73 (2 cabins)
KPetty

Group 2:
Glorib
SnipsNSnails
Gina
Juliefsu
BlueNorthern
FloridaFun (2 cabins)
DuckWindow
Dianacarole
Dawncala
Dismom73 (2 cabins)
KPetty

For those in who are in one group, I put the names into a bowl and drew them at random. I hope that was an okay with everyone.

Beth

Yeah, it's our first time too. I figured it would be more fun to do smaller things for more people. Plus, I'm hoping it will be fun enough to tempt my kids out of the kids' clubs. Otherwise, I might not see them all week! :-)
