Old Business KWHSS- Working on building event website. Have PayPal pre-reg forms ready to go. The Housing Contract with MU is ready to sign. Has sent question to Kingdom Exchequer. Normally, PayPal fees come out of the event profits. Given the sizable PayPal fees from the housing costs, can we ask for “donations” at gate and/or via Paypal to offset the 5% fees. Question asked, can attendees reserve directly with MU housing, like a hotel. MU can’t accept credit card payments

If a group of people do not have enough people to fill the beds, will be assigned a smaller room. We need to provide MU with a list of people who are staying in the rooms, so security knows who is and is not permitted.
