    Saturday morning will begin with a couple of programs at the hotel.   The first one by Whitney & David Scott, immediately followed by Scott Robert Lim, who is sponsored by Sony & Arlington Camera.  Following a lunch break, we will take an excursion to Wompa, for the 2nd half of Scott Robert Lim’s program.  (Wompa is located at 3306 Charles Page Blvd in Tulsa)

    The Awards Banquet will be on Saturday evening. It will be held offsite at Baxter’s Interurban Grill, which is located next door to the Doubletree Hotel.  (The actual address is 717 S Houston St, Tulsa, OK  74127)   Your banquet ticket will provide you with a completely catered meal.

    Sunday's program is with Gary Hughes, who is sponsored by WHCC.  It will be held at the hotel that morning but Expo attendees, for no additional cost, may stay after lunch and embark upon another field trip to Wompa for some additional afternoon excitement. There, you will have models provided for a shootout, while using the location's cool venue as a backdrop! (Bring your gear and stick around!)

    Note that there will also be two extra add-on classes available on Friday and Monday.  Gary Hughes hosts a Post-Expo workshop on Monday, while Scott Detweiler, who is sponsored by H+H Lab, will host a Pre-Expo class on Friday.
