Our family also collect deposits to deferr initial costs and allow you to book places early in the year. A family meeting is part of the activity, we select the person that will like to host the reunion the following year and turn over the remaining funds and letter of incorporation so that the person can open an account where they live. Everyone is aware of the carry over balance. We also allow anyone to make whatever deposit they may wish to make at that time and during the year. This way, even a person with a hard ship will not have to come up with all of the amount (esp. if large members)at one time, in addition to trying to pay for travel. The other reason is because the best of us have intentions on making the deadline, but for what ever reason they are missed, or un-foreseen situations come up.
Instead of having the cost of printing up t-shirts, we give a prize to the family member who shows up with the most unique desings. It is then the cost of the family members and the contests are really great. The next year, the other family members become determine to win.
