Why does the "ticket price" ( online Eventbrite system) when registering indicate that it's "free" ??
We are leveraging one of the many features of the online Eventbrite system, but NOT their fee collection segment because they charge for that service. We are trying to keep costs down. Therefore: NO charge for the online ticket & registration service... we collect for the actual class at our first class meeting.
