Frequently Asked Questions

I already have plans on July 10th, should I cancel them?

Yes.

What makes the Unreasonable Climax such a defining event and gathering?

We appreciate how you phrased the question. To answer it properly, we turn to E. B. White who once said, "I get up every morning determined to both change the world and have one hell of a good time. Sometimes this makes planning my day difficult." We are making it easy for you.
