Register 2019

$699 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.

Check your SPAM file if you don’t see the confirmation email come through in a few minutes.

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 may 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!

A $100 deposit will save your space at SBWC 2019.

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