    Hi. I am the director of this event for NSPN. I don't know how to break this to you, but we have had an unprecedented response to the workshop this year (over 70 attending) and have reached a legal limit for the facility we are using. Only one of you has emailed me at [masked] to retain a spot in this event. Unfortunately that requirement was buried in the description as it was posted on this meetup. We needed to do this since we have interest from so many different sources.
