November – 2021 ( Fall event – Postponed)

Due to the current exponential growth of the new Covid 19 Delta variant and with Texas having nearly 40% of the new hospitalizations in the U.S. It is at this time in good conscience that we postpone the 2021 event, until 2022.

All fees paid during 2021 will be refunded back to the original form of payment on Zapp, all Covid credits will be held until 2022. We will update our calendar for 2022 shortly.
