Dear ASL Heroes,
The school district that requested the 2008 Safari has informed me that due to budget cuts they will not be able to participate in the Safari to the extent that they originally thought they would.
Since their participation was the 90% of the reason for the Safari, that means we won't hold the Safari in 2008.
Sorry. If things change, I'll post it here. Hey, maybe 2009?
