It's on the calendar now, have to put in a request at work to get the day off. I'll be a plus one if I can do this.

I would love to go but have a prior commitment. Is there a way to be on an email list with date and time for next year's event? Chris

I still don't have that week's schedule but I am very likely on board for this. Meanwhile, my boyfriend was contacted about this event elsewhere, so it's definitely calling us if I'm free.
