Register today for 2019

Still only $650 for all six days!

If you are paying by credit or debit card, you might get a message that says something like: “Your credit card did not go through”…that that usually means is that there was a delay in authorizing, not by us but by the banking system, SO PLEASE WAIT for a while to see if you you get an email saying you are registered.

If you are unsure if your registration went through, email and we can manually verify for you.

If you register a second time, your credit card will be billed twice. If that happens, we will put through a refund for a double billing, but understand that it costs SBWC approximately $25 each way to credit out a double payment.

Thus the discount for paying by check!

We will extend last year’s prices at least until March 31, 2019. Registrations have been very good and we want to encourage as many as possible to get in with the low full conference price of $650. Cheers! A deposit by March 31 will also guarantee you the lower price.

We look forward to seeing you June 16-21, 2019.
