Yeah, I know season is a big deal. Unfortunately, I have this unmoving and unforgiving commitment for 9 months of the year and can't make it happen during Christmas because the resorts (business my family is in) is on a 110% schedule. So, yeah, I guess the dates I'm looking for are popular, but still, 5 years on the waitlist, and 3 years with 10 chances each year and nothing? And just like Jennifer says, the resentment only grows every year. I was cool with it for the first 5, realized the points system wasn't a guarantee so I was okay with years 6 and 7. But year 8, now with 3x10=30 chances, and I'm getting irked.
