Awesome! I'm hoping I can get a Saturday off. Changed my damn schedule so I'm Sun-Tues off. Question, are we going to have a Biffy charge? We usually have a biffy for these big events. It would be good to have everyone bring $5 so we can pay the owner of Dryads Rest for the biffy any extra goes to her for letting us use her property.

We’re looking at a basic $10 a person site fee to cover the biffy and site expenses, and will take donations to help instructors with class materials.
