    I tried to sign up for the last of the 3 events and the form appears to be miscoded. It requires a “how did you hear about this event” checkbox to be selected but the form would not allow me to check any of the options. I could select other checkboxes on the form. My guess about the problem is an incorrectly specified default value for the checkboxes in this section.Please let me know if this gets fixed since I’d like to learn more about FlashLite. Thanks.
