CLICK ON "DAY-NUMBER" AT LEFT FOR COURSE DESCRIPTION AND COST DETAILS

The following list of 16 courses includes four that are new for 2015. Also included are another five that were not offered in 2014. For all courses we seek a quorum of about a dozen participants which will assure payments of all course costs. In the past five years 90% of courses listed reached this quorum. Courses that have "reached quorum" will definitely run as scheduled in 2015; those "nearing quorum" are virtually certain. We remain optimistic about others.
