Jeff Harrison Ken what time will the 5th session start and awards ceremony start?
March 6, 2018; 11:26am EST
Ken Crane I am not aware of times yet. Bend Organizers should be getting us that info by the end of the month. I would assume last session would end around noon and closing ceremony around 6-7 if I had to guess.

Sarah Robertson Yes, the last session will end around noon and the closing ceremony will start about 6.
