Ooops...mistake

Morning everyone!
 
For a little while this morning...there was the announcement of open registration for the ICQC 102 Class. BUT, this was in error...and the calendar was in error.
 
I have changed the class calendar...and deleted the prior post.
 
My play was/is to move the class open registration to 2-4 September. I did put that in the calendar correctly...but forgot to delete the prior dates in August. Silly to have the same class open just a week apart but sorry for the confusion because I forgot to delete the August info.
 
Geez...it's no fun getting so forgetful!
 
And, it is embarrassing to do it in "public". 
 
Hugs,
