Early bird of $699 ends Friday July 29th

Last year, the first North American Venue was in NYC.

This year, Philly gets to strut its stuff . . .

Since this is at Fringe Arts Theater near Columbus Ave and the Riverfront in South Philly . . . I think we should have a " Mummers and Hummers" Parade down Columbus Avenue" Imagine strutting to the sound of Saxophones and Banjos and Roaring Engines in the middle of the night.  Then culminating with the Battle of the Cheesesteaks at 9th & Wharton & Passyunk.  That'll show those Brits that South Philly never forgits.

( Nov 10, 1777 Ft Mifflin the largest bombardment of the Revolutionary War from british ships in the river )


so then we invite everyone out on Saturday, Sunday Nov 12,13 for Siege Wkend at nearby Fort Mifflin.   $10 for the day

Note this conference is just 2 days after America's 58th quadrennial Presidential election.
