Update June 27th
Our event has gotten all approvals for 2021. We will continue to monitor state and local guidelines for COVID and adjust as necessary for a safe event. Hopefully, with everyone's help we will be able to have a great event in November. Registration open July 1st at 12:01AM and our event is limited to 200 this year. We will utilize a waiting list once we fill 200 slots.
