    What is the “Galusha settlement” mentioned in the options? How can you send in an educated comment w/o knowing what this stuff is?

    The pre-registration link (tinyurl.com/APA-NMI-info) didn’t work for me. I can’t fill out the form. Also, it states on the form that ” You cannot join the event now because it has not started.” This doesn’t appear to be a pre-registration link at all.
