Information for Class Sponsors

Please keep your listing concise with just the dates, name of the sponsor, location, brief comments and contact information.  If possible, provide a link to your club web page with full information about the class.  This allows the club to update the listing as necessary.    Another option is to provide a link to a class flyer in PDF.

 

Disclaimer:  I do my best to keep up with scheduling changes on these events, but there is always the chance that one will be canceled or re-scheduled and I will not find out about it.  I suggest that you verify all dates and locations with the sponsor.  If you find any inaccuracies, please contact me at .  Thanks!
