  1. Brenda Nesbitt Says:

    Can I still register ahead of time? As a return participant (from 2x before) can I still get some sort of discount? I had made plans to attend from the minute I heard about it, but have been slow to get round to actually registering. I can’t pay $80. Just can’t do it.

    • Tania Urenda Says:

      Hi Brenda,
      Contact Alice Aldridge-Dennis right away at 303-521-8615 if you haven’t already and you might be able to get the $65.00 rate!
