Do you wish to play in ALLIANCE more frequently and do not want to fill out a Guest Request every day? There is no path to be an included member, but with the purchase of our Monthly Lesson, we will add you to the Alliance guest list and keep you activated as a guest until 11:59am on the last day of the month.
This package will include:
- Monthly LIVE! Playing Lesson with Silvana Morici
- One (1) downloadable video lesson by Sylvia McNamara
- Guest status to participate in ANY of Alliance's games until 11:59am on the last day of the month with any INCLUDED MEMBERS or other SEMI-PERMENANT GUESTS (Monthly lesson and pass holders)
You guest pass starts 48 hours AFTER the day you sign-up at 10amEST and will not be prorated, adjusted or credited. If you sign up on the 25th of the month, your pass is still only good until the last day of the same month. (e.g. If you sign up on a Monday at 10:01amEST, your pass will not activate until Thursday at 10:100amEST.)
The links to your Monthly LIVE! class and downloadable class will arrive in your confirmation email. LIVE! class is always scheduled for the SECOND WEDNESDAY of the month at 8pmEST and will run 60 minutes (Note: date and time changes may be necessary during holidays or due to conflicts in scheduling at any time). Please check your spam folder for your confirmation email and keep it safe.
