Your registration pays for the special guests of honor you can meet, technology, program books, equipment, and everything that goes into putting an entire weekend of events together. HOWEVER, if you are with a school group of 10 people and the only way you can register is with a paper check, contact us for help and we'll take care of you. A badge is a plastic/paper card with your name and registration ticket number that lets you into convention events.
You can pick up this badge, with a lanyard to wear it, at the registration desk when you get to the convention.
This belief was taken up a notch when a folklore involving a father and son in Lincolnshire in the 1560’s started making the rounds.

We will email you with confirmation of your registration soon after registering, in most cases.
