If you know little or nothing about Tarot, one of the best ways to intuitively connect to the cards is just to start doing readings -- preferably with a Rider Waite deck or other similar deck. On the other hand, it doesn't matter how much you know about the Tarot or about the esoteric/Kabbalistic attributions of the Waite deck or any other deck if you don't do readings. If you have a favorite deck that you already work with, bring it along. I always like to see other decks. I'll also bring some extra Universal Waite/Rider Waite decks with me.
The venue may change. If so, I may be able to expand the attendees to 12 people. In addition, if Bella Napoli can let me use the downstairs room again, I may also be able to have 12 people.
