Can you tell me if a coat and tie is frequired/recommended for any of the activies of this program?

For day 5 (Friday night dinner and final concert) men should wear dress slacks and shirt--tie and coat optional. For the ladies a dress, skirt, or pants, blouse or blazer is fine. Otherwise the dress is casual with jeans, twills, capris, shorts (if warmer), tees, casual tops. Tennis shoes and/or sturdy walking shoes will be essential. I think tennis shoes would be best for the folk dancing lessons. The Ramada has a pool and a sauna, so swim attire is a good idea.

Is this program attracting a great deal of interest? We have another possibility (not a Road Scholar) that begins two days after this ends. This program is our preference, but if it does not happen, we would take advantage of the other option. Is there a go -- no go -- date?
