    I know the October exchange date has not gone up yet, but I wanted to get the November date on the calendar. As usual, I will serve a light lunch. Everyone please bring one dessert to share. We have room for 12 people. Everyone, including newcomers are welcome to join us.

    I'm in as well. No idea yet about a dessert, but I just received The Cake Bible as a present, so it will probably be something from that.

    i think getting hosts signed up far in advance is a fine idea; but maybe we should wait to start the sign up for guests until a month before each event? i'm not crazy about having all the spaces quickly filled up months in advance, as we all know plans will change and people will cancel....any thoughts??

    I prefer booking my calendar and signing up early. Done and dusted. It also helps the host, especially someone hosting during the holiday season, and as a judge once told me, the holidaze start on Halloween.

    You are right there are always cancellations, especially 24-48 hours prior and I think the waitlist works great in those situations as long as the folks cancelling publicly post so that the waitlisted can make it or decline.

    We have almost always been able to accommodate folks off of the waitlist this year.

    I do appreciate being able to sign up early, especially as it gets so busy during the holidays. It seems that most of the cancellations are the day before or day of, anyway.

    I also like being able to sign up well in advance. Weekends can get crowded quickly, even four weeks out, and it's even worse in November through January. Plus I like having plenty of time to think through and try out what I'm going to bring. Anticipation is a big part of the fun for me.

    I agree with Pairs4Life. The only thing seasonal about pie is WHICH pie to make! #theworldneedsmorepie!
