That is an interesting one, is there any way to confirm what they actually entered in the form?  I do wish that onPeak would send a summary email after the form is submitted.

I wish they did too. Sadly no screenshot of the summary, just the "you entered" confirm that most of us took after submitting.

I have nothing, as a strange result, I can report someone not on the forums who had listed needing rooms from Tues-Monday got 1 night (??) at the Hard rock for Tues-Wed.  And I can confirm this person was def telling the truth about the odd 1 night offer which isn't helpful at all to them? What is going on?

Also my own submission got me in at 9:03, finished at 9:05. I have yet to receive an email.

Would they be willing to fill out the google form? They don't have to enter their name and the form does not collect email addresses or other PII.

There are always a few weird results every year, the one you mention is really weird.

This really does seem odd.  Hopefully we can get enough data together to try and figure out why things like this happen.

Did you enter a Member ID?: no I forgot

My top 6 were:

Apart from me, I also entered the other 6 people in my group in the hotel sale. Used different info for all course. Out of 7 people I was the only one to get an email. On my form I finished quickly but on theirs it took me more than 3 minutes maybe more. I wonder if that was a factor. Also double randomization is kicking me butt!
