THE INTERNET MIGHT CRASH TOMORROW AS thousands register for Dîner en Blanc

I just got this and BTW I took off my personalize info for registering. This is just a general guideline for those who are on the list to sign up.
 
This email is NOT a
confirmation. You are receiving this email because you previously
signed up for the waiting list of Dîner en Blanc – Philadelphia.  This
spectacular event will take place in on Thursday, August 21, 2014 in an
undisclosed location, rain or shine.

Your registration phase will begin tomorrow, Thursday, July 17, 2014 at 10:30am EDT. Here is a list of tips to help you with the registration process:
– Don’t use Internet Explorer. Several people reported problems of
not being able to progress past Group Leader selection due to issues
with IE. Try using Google Chrome, Safari, or Firefox.
– Make sure your Adobe Flash is up to date.
– Sign up for a PayPal account now and link it to your credit card.
During the first year, many people made it through most of the
registration process only to be stopped by PayPal who wouldn’t process
the credit card.
– If your friend already has a ticket, ask him/her for the name of the
Group Leader and Table Leader. That group may be filled by the time you
register, but, if there is still space, try to register in that section
if you want to be seated in the same area as your friends. Once your
registration is complete, groups cannot be changed.

Remember, your registration phase will begin tomorrow, Thursday, July 17, 2014 at 10:30am EDT. At that time, we ask that you please come back to this e-mail and click on the following link to register:

Cost is $68.50 total per table (for both you and your guest). This cost includes:
– Your $5 annual membership to become an official member of Le Dîner en Blanc®
– A $5 transaction fee (similar to the fee charged by websites when purchasing concert tickets)

– If you were recommended by a friend who is a Pedestrian Leader, please choose him/her as your Pedestrian Leader

registering, you will see a list of “Group Leaders.” Click on the
appropriate Group Leader in order to view his/her list of Pedestrian
Leaders.
– Guests will be using public transportation to travel to the secret location. Everyone should also be prepared for stairs and a 10-15 minute walk to the final destination.
– Before registering, be sure to remember to ask any already-registered friends for the name of their Pedestrian Leaders.

may not be able to register in the same group as your friends; once your
selection has been made, it cannot be modified.
– Participants are responsible for bringing their own table and chairs.
