Registration & Accommodations
Your purchase covers your admission to the classes and coaching for the weekend. Room & Board are paid to the Warren Conference Center. YOU MUST FILL OUT THE ATTACHED FORM & GIVE YOUR CC INFORMATION TO THE WARREN CENTER.
YOU WILL BE CHARGED $300. THE REMAINDER OF YOUR BILL WILL BE DUE CLOSER TO THE EVENT. Unlike Whispering Pines, you must pay this deposit to hold our space. It is not optional.
There are a few singles available at the venue and then we will use a nearby hotel if we need more room. There are no more doubles available at this time.
* You will get an email with links to the forms you must fill out.
You can share a single with a friend, but you will be sharing a Queen size bed.
There is a property 10 minutes away that has doubles, but you would need a car to get to and fro – mostly fro.
If you are bringing a spouse/partner, go for a single and send $600 instead of $300. (Workshop fees will not apply to your spouse/partner – unless they want to attend!)
