WORKING SCHEDULE!!!
Here’s what’s brewing for your FANTASTIC week at Timber Ridge Lodge!!!! This is a working schedule so there will be some tweaks along the way as we get other events, talks, and such in the works as well. AND…. Printed schedules will be available at check-in as well!
AND…. while we are at it…. “Break-out groups” are run by YOU our amazing participants! If you have a topic (of ANY nature!!!) you’d like to bring to the table, these scheduled times are for YOU! Last year we had talks from Instapots to flying to relationships to finances! It was an amazing plethora and thoroughly enjoyed! So if you have a topic you’d like to see as a break-out, let us know now, or bring it with you to the conference. We will definitely schedule them all!!!
