Please do NOT book your flight until you receive confirmation from our office that we have reached our minimum number of participants and we can go forward with the course. If you book your flight BEFORE receiving confirmation that the course will take place, we will not be held responsible for any fees incurred on cancelling your flight.
Lodging and Transportation
We encourage participants to stay at the same hotel for carpooling purposes. As soon as the course is confirmed you will receive an email from our office that will include a hotel recommendation where you can make your reservations. If there is a chain of hotels you prefer or if you live close to the barn locations, you are welcome to meet us at the barns each day. We have a local host for the course who will handle any specific logistical questions pertaining to your stay. We will be sending all this information once the course registration is closed.
Meals and Snacks
We plan to go to a different barn every day during the week, although logistically some courses will return to the same barn. Often, the barns are located in rural areas. We encourage students to bring their own water and snacks and a bag lunch each day. Please plan that the night before so you can meet at the barn on time and be ready to start. Often the group likes to meet for dinner at a local restaurant a couple times a week.
