qep’a’ Schedule

qep’a’ cha’maH SochDIch

July 23-25, 2020, Indianapolis, Indiana USA

This year’s qep’a’ is still months away. It’s too early to predict how the COVID-19 pandemic will affect travel and gatherings. Until more is known and long-term guidance is given, plan as if things will go as scheduled.

qep’a’ Schedule

This is the planned schedule from the 2019 qep’a’ to show the kinds of activities that take place. It will be updated to the 2020 schedule soon.

Please remember that while the times listed are never approximate, they may sometimes be inaccurate.  After the evening activities, the meeting room will be open for hanging out, playing games, etc.

For lunches, there are a few good places in walking distance or a quick drive away. For dinners, we have picked restaurants that are able to accommodate large numbers in case you want to join in a group dinner.  If you have a car we could use help with carpooling for the dinners.  Except for the pizza party, the cost of meals is NOT included with membership.
