We just started selling Gala tickets a couple weeks ago so there are still
many available but this is an event that
often sells out and this year we have a capacity of only 175. If you are
interested in coming don't hesitate in
ordering a ticket.
Tickets are $20 for VRT members and $25 for non-members. I can accept
checks, money orders, or credit card orders
in advance. If there are tickets still unsold at the time of the
conference, they may be purchased at the VRT table in
the Convention Center. The deadline for sending me an order is June 15.
