It would have been considerate of you to cancel your registration to this great weekend of education, inspiration and photography rather than just announce it on this message board that you were just blowing it off and not attending ...

I had over 60 people on the waiting list that were hoping to attend ...

But the cut off for me adding people was Monday (10/17) ...
