Obviously things are fluid and there may be changes to how we can host people in March. That being said, we cannot do this at the last minute. If you are considering participating, sign-up with all details by Jan. 19. BEFORE we share the program on Jan 28th, we will confirm if you are still interested. You will be able to drop out prior to Jan. 28th, if you feel that it's necessary, but we will not be able to add you once we have launched tickets (once people are making purchases, we can't change the options).
The ticket launch date is Feb. 1st
