I am so excited to see all the poeple who are already coming!

We still have some details to work out over the next month or so. We do have the locations secured, but need to finalize a number of smaller items before the "OFFICIAL" sign-ups can begin.

Just keep watching this thread for updates. You'll also likely hear on the Podcast when the sign-ups open up.

And if anyone has any ideas, items to donate or just questions- ask here or PM Nikki or me.
