  1. Please schedule more spinning classes. I did not come last year because there were whole days where there were no spinning classes at all and I didn’t want to pay for the extra hotel night. If necessary, concentrate them all in one or two days rather than spreading them out with downtime in between. You’ve got always to go before Yarn Fest replaces SOAR.
