It looks like something may have gone wrong at the CP Dayton.  I filled 
out the form, but never got a confirmation e-mail or number.

I don't know if I'm just unlucky or if this reflected a general 
failure.  I remember the form well, because the person who composed it 
clearly didn't know that it was for the Hamvention - it was called 
something else ham-radio-related in the text. I figured that wouldn't 
screw things up, but it looks like it may have.

Did others get the e-mails/confirmation numbers?  If not I guess we get 
to join the scrum on August 4.

73, Pete N4ZR
