Good to see you here at CS.
Looks like Ill be spending all my time in the Champions Tent. This is excellent news. Aroma has been fairly disappointing of late, but this news has gotten me looking forward to it.
The courses AASCA are running at the ICTF are freakishly expensive... I know there is an assumption that a rather generous employer will be paying for the courses but for those of us lacking financial subsidisation it really is steep. For example:
Sensory Skills - $300.00 This is an introduction to thinking about tasting...
Cupping Skills - $400.00 A follow on from the Sensory Skills course
Roasting - $1200 *:(
Id love to do all of these courses but $2100 is way out there. The roasting course in particular sounds great. Again I fully understand that these courses are meant to be an industry related work expense that would be a tax deduction etc but still...
My mini rant is over now *:)
I looked but couldnt find anymore info about the harbour cruise, any info on cost or availability of tickets?
