If you are fortunate enough to be one of the 8 accepted, PLEASE email us at email@example.com if you cannot make it, so we can offer your slot to someone on the waiting list. You will receive a reminder/confirmation email the day before the event with the group leaders’ phone number that you may text with questions or cancellations or to make arrangements for a ride from Ashmont to the event.
