Lotteries, of course, have their own drawbacks, primarily that the outcome is uncertain prior to the drawing. It’s risky to enter a lottery as individuals when you and person X, Y, or Z are committed to attending the event together. This led to our decision to allow you to register either by yourself as a party of one or with another person as a party of two.
Each member of a party will still fill out a separate registration form, but now there’s the option to indicate another person with whom your registration should be paired. Paired registrations will be treated as one party.
