Due to the continued spread of COVID-19, with the new variant, and its impact on the vast majority of our upcoming courses, we have made the very difficult decision to extend our nationwide in-person event closure until March 1, 2022. We apologize for the inconvenience this may cause, but please know this decision was not taken lightly. We understand the frustration because we were also excited to finally resume in-person events. However, our priority since the beginning is the health and safety of our volunteers and those we serve, so we are being as cautious as possible.
