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!
