Payments are being collected now; deadline to submit is July 10th. We plan to organize a brunch in conjunction with this event; those details will come out closer to the date. For now, we need to collect payment for those wishing to buy tickets at the reduced group rate. Guests are welcome to join for this event, and guest ticket price is the same as for members. If you are not able to commit now, there is a chance you might be able to get tickets on your own later; but you would likely not be seated with our group, and will have to pay full price for your tickets.
