Registration will begin for everyone beginning January 19th at 10:00am EST. All registrations must be faxed or emailed. Only one registration per fax or email. You will be notified within 7 days of acceptance. A waiting list will be offered for this retreat. 

Please read through the application carefully. We are expecting a large amount of applications so there are no guarantees for those coming in a group. There are no early registrations this time but we have a plan in place for club members, participants
in the 2020 retreat and new attendees.

We are planning a plated lunch at the country club this time to cut down on long food lines and to make the lunch a more enjoyable experience. Lunch choices will be mailed to all registrants for your lunch preferences.

We will also be having “pop-up” shops at the hotel for exciting and fun shopping!
