      hey Brian, You're on the Dec 11 session. Although you've been around long enough, it'll probably be boring for you. Have you asked Eric to sponsor you yet ;)

    Hi Ted, I can't make the new date, with the holiday and all. How should I go about changing the RSVP, and applying the fee to the next green training?

    • Ted M.

      Hey Domenick, I will manually change your RSVP to the next session on Dec 11. If that doesn't work for you, let me know and I'll refund the fee. You're welcome to come out to the space earlier than the Green session. I noticed you have 2 kids; depending on their age, they might like Take Apart Day on Nov 16.­

      Thanks Ted. I've been eyeing the take-apart days, and will keep it in mind for the weekend. I brought my kids to the squishy circuits program Jason did a couple weeks ago, and it was loads of fun. See you soon!
