Q: What are the deadlines for registration?
A: Registration will close on Friday, July 7, 2023, at 11:59 PM Eastern Daylight Time. Due to the number of awesome events that we have planned, we are required to provide our vendors and hosts attendance numbers at this time. Make sure to register early!
Q: What do I do if I make a mistake or have questions about my registration?
A: Contact our registration specialists at firstname.lastname@example.org
Q: After registering, I realized that I won’t be able to attend GORP. Can I get a refund?
A: We are sorry, but because of our fixed costs, we cannot offer any refunds for the Friday activities after you have registered. If you have registered, but cannot attend GORP, please let us know. (See next question)
Q: I see there is a no-show fee for events. What’s that all about?
A: Unfortunately, there will be a $75 charge if you register for the banquet on Saturday evening and don’t come. If you register for GORP and don’t show up at all, there will be a $200 no-show fee. Except for the optional Friday activities, GORP is free to residents. This includes your hotel room, your food, the Welcome Reception, BBQ event at the AAO, the Saturday GORP Banquet, and the lectures. You’ll never get a better deal than this!
However, it also means we have a very tight budget and can’t afford to pay for food not eaten and hotel rooms that are not being used.
Q: Will there be parking available if we drive to St. Louis?
A: Yes, self-parking at the hotel is $15/day. Valet parking is $30/day.
Q: I just signed up for GORP 2023 and realized that there may be 4 people to one hotel room. I know that it states random assignment, but will you try to pair up co-residents first?
A: Yes, co-residents will be paired up first, but depending on room availability, you may be paired with residents from another school. We will do all we can to protect everyone’s privacy, but you may get to know some residents better than others!
Q: Will GORP be safe to attend?
A: Every precaution will be made to keep all attendees safe and healthy. The GORP planning committee will follow the COVID guidelines set by the County of St. Louis and the Missouri Department of Health Services.
