    OK. We're running an event right now I think provides a good example of what I'm talking about.

    We have a golf event that is a team event, two members per team.

    I would like to have the ability to have one member sign himself up, and then choose his playing partner from a drop down box or some other control that I provide the range of possible selections.

    The current system (using the Guest feature) would work fine, if every member followed my instructions 100% literally and filled out the registration accordingly, but the reality is really quite far from that.

    I searched through the registrations for this event today and found 20% had not filled out the form correctly. Here's what happened.

    1) My instructions were to fill in the member's own information and then register the playing partner (also a member) as a guest by entering the 2nd member's e-mail address.

    2) Some members did this, others did not. Some registered as a Guest "Need a Playing Partner" or "????????', not valid e-mail addresses for existing members.

    This is a problem for me because I am now left with two options. Either I continue to allow multiple registrations using the guest workaround above, in which case I have to actively police every registration to make sure it is valid, or I have to have each member sign up individually for every event, which is what I did last year, and I received about a dozen complaints a week about it.

    What I would love to see is an enhancement or set of enhancements to the system, where a single member can sign up multiple members (the number of members is most likely going to be unique for each event, I should be able to control this when setting up the registration form) for any single event.

    Each member registered for an event in this way should appear on the list of registrants and should receive e-mail about the event in accordance with their own individual e-mail settings. Also the event should appear on their profile as it would if they registered themselves.

    This is really my biggest problem with running our events right now. If you can come up with some kind of solution or even a workaround, that would really help me so much.

    We are talking about some big events in the fall that would really be made much simpler with some form of multiple member or group registration.

    Thanks for considering it!
