I prefer buffet rather than seated dinner.
And my apologies if this issue was resolved, but while I am happy that the dinner is not “funded”, I strongly feel that the cost should be reimbursed to those individuals who require the financial support for their travel and incidentals.

They had previously looked at a bunch of options in the local area but for a group of 30+ people the $83 for seated or $80 for buffet was the best price they could find since most places require catering for a group of our size.
