JP Retreat recap:

-Good turn out, good food!

-House was great again!

-Salt deficiency.

-Recommend for next year: (1) safety guidelines for activities, (2) beds with seniority as metric, (3) maybe limit the # to 45 people, (4) try to set up a payment through MIT that we can use some of the money to pay for the deposit on the house so that someone doesn’t have to personally fill it out and also have MIT sign the liability form, (5) activity waiver?, (6) gear-lists for activities.

-Write up the survey responses and also just a recap for next year.
