Saturday Night VIP Pirate Dessert Party

Our guests who are registered for both days of the conference (Saturday and Sunday,) are invited to attend the VIP Pirate Dessert Party on Saturday night, (you will receive your ticket during registration on Saturday.) Plan on dressing up for the event in historic or pirate costume themes (optional!) and getting to mingle with our VIP guests (keynote and mini-keynote speakers, as well as our donors/sponsors and vendors and more.) This event will have a cash bar and dessert for our guests, as well as a pirate story-teller who will entertain us with historic tales of St. Augustine and Florida. We hope to see you there!

St. Augustine Tours

2017 FLAG conference registration also includes discounts to tours and events around the city, including a 1.5-hour walking tour that is being provided to all conference registrants for free, by the "Tour Saint Augustine" company. In order to sign up for that free historic walking tour, as well as any other tour discounts they are offering our participants, you need to RSVP with their company as soon as possible. Each attendee to the conference will be able to show their registration badge in order to receive the free walking tour. You can RSVP with Tour St. Augustine at 904-825-0087. Let them know you will be with the gifted conference. (They will be able to talk with you about available hours.) You can also ask them about half-price conference group rates to their ghost tour, history/mystery tour, and savory faire food tours.

Movie Showing

We are excited to also be able to show the documentary, Rise: The Extraordinary Journey of the Exceptionally and Profoundly Gifted, from the Daimon Institute for the Highly Gifted. This movie is normally available for purchase from the Daimon Institute's website, but 2017 FLAG conference registrants will be able to view this movie as part of your conference package, during our closing ceremony on Saturday, November 4! (Thank you to the Daimon Institute for a reduced price for FLAG to be able to do this!)
