 Why does the "ticket price" indicate that it's free ?   

 We're leveraging one of many features of the online Eventbrite system, but NOT their collection because they charge for that service.  We are trying to keep costs down.   Therefore :  NO charge for the online ticket and registration service.. we collect for the actual class at our first class meeting.
