      Hi Manuel,

      We haven’t set up the Eventbrite yet. As soon as we do, we’ll be sending out a notice on our newsletter so look out for it there.

      • Ah, gotcah. Sorry that button at the top of this post was misleading. Also, this event isn’t on your events calendar – not trying to be a stickler. Just wanted to point out that it’s hard to find accurate, up-to-date information, in a single location. I’ll save the date and hope to be there in October!

        • Hi Manuel,

          Sorry for the delay. We’ve finally got the tickets up and just wanted to let you know it’s live. Thanks for the feedback.

          RPCVLA Webmaster
