Bumping this one for attention. I'm helping coordinate here in GA. There's plenty of room left in the class here in McDonough!

There's also a class the same week in Sandy Springs, so if the South side of Atlanta is too far, check out Sandy Springs!

See the Semper Paratus website for registration details.
