For those who may not yet know, our Spartner retreat--scheduled for Feb 1-3 after being "washed out" by Hurricane Sandy--has been cancelled due to the inability of most interested spartners to attend. This decision was reached by consensus among a number of spartners who had been working with me to plan the retreat. While all of us were sad about this, it seemed the best option to us all. Other activities, such as a single day of being together, are being planned by the Spartners group. Please stay tuned for more information!
