Event details and schedule
This year's registration fee is a bit higher due to a popular request to upgrade our event t-shirt to a dri wick. We listened and we are sure you will appreciate the improvement.

***Update: Due to many late July registrations after we had submitted the T-shirt order, we can not guarantee everyone a dri wick T-shirt. We have ordered extra cotton T-shirt’s to accommodate for those who registered after July 18th, but they are at a first come first serve basis. We apologize for the inconvenience, and are doing our best to accommodate everyone under short notice.
