Wow, great response from people on this, thanks!
I pm'd or emailed back to everyone who I heard from so far (email is preferred). I'm making a list for now and don't want to collect any money until things are finalized, hopefully that will be by the end of the month. At that time, if you're on the list you'll have the opportunity to pay and reserve your spot. If you're coming in from out of town and need a place to stay, let me know. We might be able to find a couch for you to surf for the weekend, otherwise once I know exactly where the facility is going to be I can make some recommendations for where to stay.
Thanks again, and please, if you PM me, include your email address so it's easier for me to keep you in the loop.
