Not that big a deal, just poor planning (one of my pet peeves), nothing we haven't seen before in the world of Trek conventions.
I signed up for volunteer work, filled out an application, received a coupon code for free general admission ($55.00), and was given information on a volunteer meeting on Friday morning. So how would you interpret all this? I thought that maybe I was going to be doing some volunteer work.Three weeks later I get an email saying, “Thanks but we have reached our volunteer quota.”
I would have thought they would determine how many people they needed, and chosen the volunteers BEFORE they sent out free coupon codes, and given out meeting dates, etc.? I hope they didn't send out a ton of codes, what a waste of potential profits! Not to mention a waste of time for those who have to change their plans.
