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

For all courses we seek a quorum of about a dozen participants which will assure payments of all course costs. In the past six years about 90% of courses listed reached this quorum. Courses that have "reached quorum" will definitely run as scheduled; those "nearing quorum" are virtually certain. We remain optimistic about all others.

The dates for all courses are now firm, except for any labelled otherwise.

Some courses are labelled "Maximum 18 participants." This is done for logistical reasons including van travel, drivers and insurance.
For applications in excess of the maximum, we will keep a Wait List and work on including those applicants in the course.


 DAY-14            The Birthplace and Early History of the Atomic Bomb, March 31 - April 2, 2016 in Albuquerque NM - reached quorum - course will run - we have exceeded maximum of 27 participants - course closed - accepting additional applicants for the September/October offering at the end of the list
