  • Saturday Luncheon Options: There will be three options this year for lunch for the ladies:
    • Best Option: Join your Knight at the awards luncheon and see all the hard work they have accomplished recently, and join in celebrating those successes. Extra luncheon tickets WILL NEED TO BE PURCHASED WHEN YOU REGISTER. (see registration for details)
    • Better Option: Enjoy lunch at the hotel restaurant.
