Same here, Pete.  So far no email confirmation.  I know I put my email
address on the form.

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.
