Seating Requests

Seating requests and dietary restrictions may be made online when you register. Seating is arranged by tables of 9. Tables of 10-12 are limited. If your seating requests exceed these numbers, then you will be seated in the same vicinity as your requested family or families.

We will do our best to honor all seating requests, but exact seating is not guaranteed since numbers and table arrangements may not work out mathematically.
