Any tips for those that haven't packed yet? Is the playing site particularly warm or cold? Thanks.

I just noticed that this Silodor Pairs event page http://bridgewinners.com/tournament/event/2019-spring-nabc-silodor-open-pairs/ has a COC link to a dated 2014 document, which is incorrect (references Mid Chart, for example). The correct COC is here: https://s3.amazonaws.com/cdn.acbl.org/wp-content/uploads/2014/02/SilodorOpenPairs.pdf
Forcing Jump?
The poll could have options of forcing, invitational, and preemptive.
Which Slam?
In my favorite methods, 3NT-4 (asks hand type). Now overcaller should treat the hand as balanced (a 5-card suit seems insufficient to be called a "source of tricks") and must choose between 4NT (extra values, ~19-20) or 5NT (even bigger). With the K onside and all those tricks ...
(1M)-1NT-transfers to the M...
I play this also, however in the specific auction (1)-1NT-(P)-2, your bid is potentially passable, so you have to decide if it should be only Inv (not Inv+).
1NT or 1C
I would be more sympathetic to the "make it a bidding poll" crowd if bidding polls received equal treatment in this site's default UI (user interface). Instead bidding polls are viewed by fewer users, and often long after the original post.

Loved the Rendezvous dry rub ribs when there ~10 years ago. Went back a second time on just a 3-day visit.
XY NT by a passed hand
The poll needs at least 2 more options: Revert to all bids natural, and Other.
