Search Function in Gen Con Reg

I'm really disappointed in the Search function through the Gen Con registration system - for me, it is almost pointless to use it, and I just go to highprogrammer to find a game, copy the event #, then paste to Gen Con.  For example, if I want to find open events for "Here at the End,"  and type "here at the end" in the search bar, I get over 1,000 hits, and I have to go down to the "H's" to get to what I want.  How is this useful?
I don't remember it being so obtuse last year.

You have to put it in quotations. So your search would be:

"here at the end"

If you're searching for a phrase, always put it in quotes.

You can also use the old search interface here, if you want.

OK - thank you for the info.
Next year, if those instructions and the link could be put on the "Find Events" Search page, I think that would help with the customer search experience.  I mean, I've been going to Gen Con for 8 years, and I had to spend some time looking for that information on the site here, after you clarified it for me.
