We need a reliable registration before January 15th in order to book the seminar house. Half of the meals and accommodation fee is due by mid January. We advise to take precautions by taking travel insurance. If we don’t have enough registrations by Jan 15 we will have to cancel not the event, but the location so everyone would then be in charge of his own food and accommodation which would make it more expensive and less comfortable.
