    Yes I am available. Is there still a space?

      I responded almost immediately, and advised I did not know how to change the RSVP at the top. I assume this is at your end??? I am assuming I am not going now as you have not responded. . . .

      Hi Robyn - due to the high demand on this class we do not manage the RSVPs and need to let the system do it. When a spot becomes available everyone on the waiting list gets an email and the first person to change their rsvp (edit at the top) will get that spot. Unfortunately yes there are no more spots left - but this class will be running on a monthly basis.

    Hi Signe. Someone just cancelled, and someone else just snatched their place. We will be running these once a month, or thereabouts.
