Come On Down, Up, Over! There's a Rising Tide!

That's right. The Rising Tide Conference is The Place To Be on the weekend of August 25th - 27th. Because I'm rather overwhelmed right now, I stole copied this schedule right off of Maitri's blog. So read on, and then register and come spend the weekend with us.
