Summer Gathering

THE schedule (as it stands)

Version 5 - This is the final version, it, the whole gamut.

However... Finalisation of the program will not occur until Friday afternoon (the “Who wants to do a workshop workshop”), and even then, minor changes may occur.
A whiteboard will be available on site for daily activities and locations. While all time slots are currently full, extra ones can be created if necessary.
