A Couples' Enrichment Weekend Retreat
Waiting List Status
as of 05/10/2020



For the "Going Deeper" weekend of

Friday, __ to
Sunday, __, 20xx
Dates to be determined
Also see:   Guidelines for
Registration & Waiting List

   Status Partners Zip Code
2 No wait list yet
[See spaces available]

The November retreat begins soon - Friday, 10/__/20__.  2 spaces that opened recently were filled by 2 wait-listed couples.  The next couple to deliver their deposit + registration information will be  #1  on our waiting list.  If you cannot attend our retreat this November, please consider signing up for a future retreat (November 20__, or after). 

The couples shown above are on our waiting list.  If a currently-registered couple cancels, we will contact our wait-list names in the order that registrations were received and hope that someone can make last-moment arrangements to fill an empty room.

We cannot predict cancellations -- A few years ago, one couple cancelled 12-hours ahead of the retreat.  Their space was filled, but it is almost unheard of that someone else could adjust plans at such a late date.

To those of you who place your names on our waiting list, many thanks for sending in your registration form & deposit, and for your continued patience.  We will hold and will not cash your payment check unless a space becomes available and you tell us that you will attend the retreat.  

If you cannot attend this time, please consider signing up for a future retreat -- Dates are shown in far left column.

x For confidentiality ---> Initials (not names) of partners on the wait-list are shown in this column. Truncated Zip Codes are shown in this column  [i.e.: xxx08]

If you want to attend our "Going Deeper" retreat in Minnesota and can make a fast last-minute decision to do so, please: 

-1- Reserve a place on the waiting list by sending or delivering your deposit & registration information;  and 

-2- Contact retreat leaders if you have questions:
