    Good Evening.....maybe I am just not smart enough to figure it out, but I cannot for the life of me locate the dates of the upcoming SMD4 event? I found dates for previous events - but nothing for the one I received an email notification today about.

    Is there a published schedule? Do you have to "know someone" to purchase a seat----or is it first-come-first-served?

    Thanks, John

    ok...thanks for the info. So, if I don't attend the Launch Party----then I am pretty much out-of-luck for obtaining a seat?

    Not at all, although there will be some random drawings at the launch party for ealy booking privileges.

    OK.....I'll read thru the info cited in the first reply and I'll keep an eye out for the dates once the schedule is announced. Normally, how far in advance is the event (weeks, or months)? I'm Active Duty Navy, and can't really just drop what I am doing for the trip.....but, want to participate. Thanks.

    Likely 4-6 months before flight time. In two days time we'll all know.

    P.S. Thanks for your service to this country.

    Randy......I saw the latest blog entry regarding dates and cities......one question......the cost cited was for the charter, does the cost include the Zurich portion? Or, is the international option an additional cost? Ty's, John

    The quoted prices include the domestic charter, the transportation to/from events, most meals, etc. It does not include hotels, the international portion, or positioning flights to/from the start of the trip.
