    I am interested in being a "senior representative". I realize there isn't such a job title, but I am a retired RN and actively involved with non-profit organizations in the Mexican city where I live. I work to improve the quality of life of both Mexicans and the expats with whom I share this town. That being said, I was very dissatisfied with the last reunion. Some issues I have mentioned on other posts, such as the resort venue which I felt kept us from connecting to each other. There is one huge issue I want to get off of my chest, and I hope this is the proper place to say it. The welcome reception was a disaster. My most important concern was the overcrowding of the restaurant. I still feel I should have called the fire department and reported the over capacity crowd. I am glad whoever chose this restaurant doesn't have to live with a death of one of us on his/her conscience. I know damn well if one of us had had a cardiac incident, the EMTs could not have gotten through the crowd to save that person. Did the persons deciding to have the welcome event at The Hole in the Wall realize there were going to be over 200 people present that Friday night? I've been told there were 600 of us registered so why wasn't a venue chosen that could hold that potential number? Why put us in a dangerous situation? Did anyone check what the max capacity was for that restaurant? Do I need to mention the poor quality of food and that there wasn't enough food for all of us? There are some of us, retired and on fixed incomes, who must save for something special like a Brat reunion. I count on those free meals. Yes, it's sad I'm not wealthy but I am not alone. That's another question in a survey that should be proffered to our Brat family. How important are the two meals offered with our reunion floos? In conclusion, I would like to see a survey with questions for all ages of Brats that would help the planning committee make decisions. I'll tell you one thing for certain. If I am ever put in a situation where the overcrowding is a danger to anyone of us, I will call authorities. Thank you for reading my thoughts.
