If you are interested in joining us, please fill out (by Thursday, January 31) the Doodle Poll with your name, e-mail, and whether or not you are a U.S. Citizen. Note: The Doodle Poll results are private and only visible by the creator of the poll.The Doodle Poll is available here.

If you are a foreign national you will need to fill out an additional form and provide your home address so that INL can clear you through security. We will send this form to the e-mail address you provide in the Doodle Poll. This form will need to be returned to us by February 1st.

We have a limited number of spots for this trip; it is first come, first served! Once the poll closes, we will notify everyone.
