due at the beginning of each session.  
I have decided to begin in April, combining 

Saturdays and 
Thursday evenings, plus a couple Tuesday evenings.  I will need a $200

deposit by March 15th.  In addition to the three sessions, you will need

to audit a series of my group obedience class.  I generally hold these

on Monday or Wednesday evenings from 7-8pm and they run for 6 weeks.
Session 1 will be held in April.  We will do 2 Saturdays 4/6 and 4/27
 from 9am to 4 pm with a 1 hour break for lunch. and 2 Thursday evenings,
4/4 and 4/18 from 7-9pm.

 evenings 6/13, 6/20 and 6/27 and Tuesday evenings 6/4 and 6/25 from 
Session 3 we can either do in August or put off until September after
 school starts back up.  If we do August/ end of July, we will meet Sat
 7/27 and 8/24 9-4, and Thursday 8/8 and 8/22 from 7-9pm.  I will leave
 this up to the class, personally would like to wait until Sept since our
 summers are so short.

We just grab a coffee and speak French. Some people have been coming every week for months... it creates a kind of warmth to the group.
