**IMPORTANT UPDATE POSTED 7/15/2010** Due to low registration numbers, we have postponed the conference to Saturday 9/25/2010. It is our hopes that after summer vacations are over, more can attend. Apologies to any who this inconveniences. If you are one of the few who registered, we will be in touch personally. WA-FEAST has already committed to bringing Kyle Dine to Seattle for a concert at the Seattle FAAN Walk on Sunday 8/15/2010, so we will likely still have an awesome WA-FEAST event for tween-teens only on Saturday 8/14 with him. Thank you for your support.
