Yes, I assuming that's what they mean when they say "exact numbers 1 week in advance".

I think closing registration one or even four weeks prior to the event is a reasonable thing to do. If people decide to show up spontaneously, they simply cannot expect to be fed. There are restaurants around though, and the bistro will have convenience food. > Assuming this will be a buffet, one possibilty (and I am not > saying we should necessarily do this) would be to tell the hostel > staff the numbers, so they prepare for so-and-so-many people. The hostel will not let us do this. That's the whole point: they are willing to refund us unused meals if we can prove that we are not using them. -- .''`. martin f. krafft <firstname.lastname@example.org> Related projects: : :' : proud Debian developer http://debiansystem.info `. `'` http://people.debian.org/~madduck http://vcs-pkg.org `- Debian - when you have better things to do than fixing systems windoze nt crashed. i am the blue screen of death. no one hears your screams.
