You can attend more than one. The Forms will each take up as much time as two shorter sessions. Two Forms will go on simultaneously. So you could do two Forms and no other breakouts or one Form and two other breakouts or four breakouts with no Forms.

I don't understand, what is a Form?

Sorry!  This:
"Breakouts for each Form, with an overview of the Form and then details on each year"

There will be a breakout for Form I, to talk about Years 1-3, and a breakout for Form II, to talk about Years 4-6, and a breakout for Forms III and IV, to talk about Years 7-9, and a breakout for Forms V and VI, to talk about Years 10-12.  Those will last twice as long as a normal breakout because they cover so much more material, and there will be two of those going on at the same time, two in the morning and two in the afternoon.  If you do one of those, you can't attend any of the other sessions going on at the same time.

Do you have to be a member of Instragram to be able to read it all?
I don't think so.

My husband and I will be coming from St. Louis and would be glad to share a ride and/or room. Is it just you, or will your husband be coming too?
I'm considering staying with a cousin in Waxahatchie, but I wanted to see if the schedule would be considerate to theirs. Do you know start & end times for the activities each day. I know Th start time and Saturday end time. How late will Thursday & Friday be?
Thursday should be done by 8 or 8:30; Friday 8:30 or 9.

Schedule sounds great. Any chance you'll record the sessions so that I can listen later to the ones I don't get to attend?
