    I am so excited to see all the poeple who are already coming! :cool1:

    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. :hippie:
