They don't have the funding this year, so the festival is scaled down from previous years. However, John B. is giving a Friday clinc, and Ben is going to be there too.

I noticed that Jynx is going.
Last year, the Stephensons, Isaac, and I went.

I don't know that it will be in this years budget, but this cooooold weather may change my mind.

Anyone else thinking of going?

Any comments from the people that went last year?
