There is no maximum, but there IS a minimum! Each Sponsor is responsible for gathering a minimum 12 letters for the Pilgrim to read in the conference room. Overflow letters go into a packet for the pilgrim to read at home. Why do we only give them 12 letters in the Conference Room? This ensures that everyone has time to read the letters they do receive during the Walk before leaving for Closing, and also helps to keep other pilgrims from wondering why their sponsor only gave them 12 letters when someone else’s sponsor might have gathered 30 or more.
