Cost and Ticket Sales:

Dinner reservations are by pre-payment ONLY - no tickets will be sold at the door!

$42 per person with first-come first-served seating; however...

If you would like to reserve a full table of 8 people, you may purchase a special reservation for $45. Please note that this is in addition to the dinner price. One table will be reserved for each payment of $45 - so please be sure you fill your table! Location of the reserved table will be "preferred" and assigned at the time of purchase on a first come first served basis. (If you have an opinion on what you would prefer please let me know at time of purchase.) And there will be a special surprise on each reserved table, provided by WK6I and Twisted Oak Winery.

Let me explain reserved tables again: If you want to reserve a table for you and your friends, pay the $45 and also purchase your dinner tickets (see below). Tell your friends to purchase their own dinner tickets. When you come to the event I will have your reserved table ready, in front close to the presentations. You get to decide who sits there (but please do your best to fill the table.)

Seating is limited to 150, no tickets will be sold at the door. Online ordering closed. Ticket order deadlline was 11pm PDT on Monday, April 8th, 2019.
