For the past few years, our team has always gone to at least one regional that requires us to stay in a hotel.
A few years ago a senior member of the team took the hotel's complementary bar of soap and bit a chunk out of it. A note was then left for the hotel staff with the mutilated soap placed next to it. The note read "Sorry, but your cookies are not very delicious."
A team member has been required to preform this ritual soap procedure every year since. Although we forgot it this year at the Washington DC regional, getting off the waitlist for St.Louis has ensured that we will be able to carry on this honored tradition.
