This is coming quick, right? Says 2022 in the title, the date of the event says 2021. Clear across the state for me, I would be better at a South Dakota gathering at Sioux Falls or Nebraska one in Omaha. What is the program, is this a flea market thing or something structured with speakers, workshops, demonstrations etc.?
