At MAFFC, we don't necessarily spend our time during the November and December holidays like the rest of you. Thanksgiving was near the end of our Call For Instructors, and the entire month of December is spent going through the class proposals and finalizing what we will be offering for MAFFC 2017. In other words: lots of stuff to do.
We hope to roll out that list of classes around the beginning of the new year. And if everything goes as scheduled, you can look for registration to open around the beginning of February.
In the meantime, listen to the podcasts and/or read a book from one of our reading lists if you find yourself with nothing to do until then.
