Here, as promised, is a rough schedule of events that may be of interest. You will notice that it is heavy on the versatilities. Part of that is because versatility has really become a focus for me and most of my students. Also, I simply don’t know the schedule for many of the fairs, etc. I may not be attending all of these events, but if they are listed here, they are on my radar. I may also attend events that are not listed here. You will also notice a couple of conflicts. Feel free to let me know about anything else that may be of interest.Last Sunday of every month, April through September: Western Playdays and Award Series.
