  1. Hi Organizers! My husband eats a gluten-free vegetarian diet. I eat a vegetarian diet. Thanks for asking about food! Judy

    1. Oh my GF AND vegetarian must be difficult! Have you notes that on the badge form? We will let the catering staff at the Hilton and Frontenac know.

  2. Audrey I am Jackie Campbell from Cincinnati, Oh and am buying Candi Spencer’s registration. How do I get registered so I can start getting tickets?

    1. You should just have received your login info! Let us know if you have not. Please check your junk mail just in case!

  3. Audrey,
    I need your help. My computer is crapping out. I can’t tell how may tickets I have purchased for the Grande Soiree Reception and also for the Speak Outlander Breakfast. I need two (2) for each event, but may have duplicated. I can’t tell. My husband was supposed to come but he crapped out due to work conflicts. Now my daughter is coming with me. I did put she and I on the Badge Form. Can you let me know? Thanks,
