First, all the first 50 tickets are sold. These folks
receive the $100 room credit and a special gift from Rick and Howard valued at
$100. Effectively making admission $795. We have decided to extend it until 5PM
TODAY! After that, the next 50 will still receive the $100 Hotel Credit. When
those tickets are sold, then it just is a flat $995 until July 31.
So there are significant reasons to sign up right now without delay. Less than
half the cost of what it will be in just 90 days! $1000 less right now than it
will be then. Every tick of the clock just costs you more money. Just do it and
sign up right now. Your admission is fully refundable up until just 7 days
before the show. How do you lose by acting now. This sign up page will be removed at 5PM PDT TODAY and all future signups can be made here and still save $100.
Below is our schedule. Not only is this schedule subject to
change, it will change as we improve the agendato make sure it is packed with
useful things you can employ and use all year long. You will never go
hungry as we will have first class foods, drinks and snacks throughout
the day. All included with your admission. The way you expect us to do
it and just a tad better for good mesaure.
