There are a few schedule changes to note that are new for the 2021 year. The Golf Networking event will be held on Monday afternoon at the beginning of the conference. There are no locations for bowling or putt putt golf in the Saratoga area. These events used to be held on Tuesday and usually was a conflict with the Facility Tour part of the day.
