  1. Hi jeff will there be another workshop in near future?

    1. Hi Dave,

      Thanks for your comment. These workshops are typically offered each year during the winter. While a specially organized one can occur later in the year, we do not have any plans to offer any more in 2016. Check back next year.

      Jeff Hahn
