Our Handwriting Workshop with Dr. Fritz Juengling on June 9th is now sold out. There is a waiting list, but we do not expect that we’ll have too many cancellations. So, while we’re always willing to add names, it’s probably unwise to get one’s hopes up.
The good news is that this encourages the IGS to offer more programming in the future. We used to be very active in this regard, until the internet and decreased membership made it seem unwise to continue offering programs — while paying speakers and presenters to come for declining audiences.
This workshop represents the first time in years that we’ve been able to pay a presenter for their work and cover transportation costs. That being something of a gamble, we did not want to add more risk by contracting for a hall somewhere for this event. The result is that we’re squeezing as many as we can into limited space at SCGS and IGS, but having to turn away those for whom we just have no available room. We hope you understand.
We’re pleased — VERY pleased — at the turnout, however. This means we’ll try to “think bigger” next year. Please keep us in mind!
