  • 1.  Golf Teams and Limiting Capacity

    Posted 05-04-2023 10:58

    We have a 400+ attendee event this year that includes golf as an optional session.  

    I usually set up golf with half the capacity slated for vendors, and the other half to our members. This evens the number of sales people vs. customers playing golf. The challenge is, the project team would like to have each vendor who registers select their golf team (up to 4 people).  I don't want the vendors to register our members for the event, but I need to make sure the capacity goes down every time a vendor registers a team for golf. 

    Any suggestions on how to set this up?  My only idea is to add "golf" as a session and assume they will have a team of four.  I would limit the number of "teams" to 12 to make sure we don't go over our 50 golf spots. Then, ask them to enter their team names in a text box field.  I could add more capacity for teams later if we have openings.  

    Thoughts?  Ideas?

    Hi Kim,
    Golf is definitely a tricky one. I like your solution, though, and for this particular scenario, it might be the best way to go. I assume then you would just not have golf be a selectable session for members since they will already be allocated by the vendor; as long as it isn't a problem that it won't show up on their schedule, I think it would work.
