That's too bad that so many didn't show up!  >:( We need a better commitment to actually participate if they sign up.

Tell me about it... I hate it when people sign up and then don't bother to show up to the event - especially since now that we're getting bigger, we're getting closer to having the maximum number of entries we can allow. It's hard to guess how many extra contestants do I allow to sign up to make up for people who will drop out - especially since there is always the chance that everyone who signed up could actually show up for the contest. Several contestants fell ill during the convention and that's why they dropped (and one of them "kindly" gave me the illness when telling me she was dropping out...I've been sick all week thanks to that one encounter.)

Is there a way it can be put into the form that it's a verbal signature (well written) that you agree to at least notify at con that you won't be participating or be banned from participating the next year? Or... something. Banning is extreme, but... something could be implemented. I recalled noticing it at SakuraCon, too, that a good handful+ dropped out.
