The 2015 Flight dates have been changed from MLK weekend for Labor Day weekend, September 5th, 6th and 7th.
The location will be the same at Short Journey Retreat Center. We look forward to seeing everyone then.
We have a lot of events planned between now and the flights.
At this time we are planning monthly events at least through the spring.

Thanks so much,
