More events will be listed soon!
IMPORTANT NOTE ABOUT IJF EVENTS:
Not every event can accomodate every IJF member. Because participation levels can vary dramatically, we plan for our "best guess" of how many people will show up. Most of the time we do pretty well, but we appreciate your understanding that planning for attendance is not an exact science. Only if you (kindly) let us know when we under-estimate can we improve our planning.
