You’ll want to stick around on both Fridays for our à la carte sessions.

We’ll offer four of them each Friday, on July 24 and July 31. They’re optional, and the cost is included in your registration.

Each will be approximately one hour, with Friday start times staggered at 11 a.m. and 1, 2 and 3 p.m. CDT.
