I am coming to learn that when planning anything with young people that they'll not commit to anything any sooner than they really have to, which makes me calmer and more patient each event I plan now... you know learning from the past and so on.
Today was the deadline for booking forms and money to be in for the MAD weekend. I had booked 20 places with PCI last June and have been asking for booking forms and deposits ever since. In June/July I had received 2 forms and up until last week that was all i still had. However tonight after the deadline I have 15 (including leaders).
Patience is very important in all of this and some faith that it will all work out good in the end.
