 Each session will happen only if enough people sign up to cover RayKo and Barry costs.  The decision to run/not run will be made four days prior to the session so SIGN UP EARLY!!  If a session has to be cancelled due to under-enrollment, all prepayments will be refunded in full or held as payment for a future session (your choice).
