Some updates on my celestial navigation classes scheduled for October and November.
First, I had to push back the two "Modern Celestial" workshops by four weeks. Details at the links below.
Second, the standard price for all workshops is now $174 per workshop, per person. But all NavList members (registered as NavList members before today) can get a special $25 discount which, effectively, cancels the price increase. Use code 8767 to apply that discount. You can also apply the code automatically by following one of these "NavList discount" links:

REPEAT A WORKSHOP
You can also repeat any workshop for a low "seat fee" -- $19.95. Any workshop that you have attended online or any workshop that you have attended in-person after 1 September 2019, you can repeat online, as many times as you wish, for only $19.95 per workshop.
