      North Florida Digital Group
      The D-Star Training Academy in Tallahassee
      Saturday February 6th, 2010
      08:30 til 17:00 EDT

      The NFDG has extended the prepayment date to January 29th, 2010. Several factors figure in to this decision.

      1) The meeting hall is rented by the occupancy space needed.
      2) Ordinances limit the occupancy for each space rented, three (3) are available.

      Those amateurs, who have prepaid by January 29th, will have guaranteed seating for the room we have already rented.

      If the prepaid registrations exceed the seating limit of the room now rented, we will rent the next block of space to guarantee seating for those additional registrants.

      There is no guarantee at this point for walk-ins or last minute registrations. As long as the seating capacity of the current room(s) rented after January 29th is not filled, walk-ins or last minute registrations are welcome.
      Donation payment at the door is USPO money order or cash.

      The NFDG does not want to be in a position of turning amateurs away. Please preplan for this event.

      We thank you for your cooperation in this matter.
