  • Everything on the schedule after JayCon XI is subject to cancellation should I go back into cancer treatment based on my April scans

  • There will be trips to Omaha every five to seven weeks

  • There will be additional Day Jobbe trips which I may or may not announce Open Dinners for

  • I may add one or two more conventions to my fall schedule

  • If you'd like me at your event and don't see it listed here, let me know; I'm happy to discuss the possibility
