All registrations are NON-REFUNDABLE unless the event is otherwise cancelled by the producers at which time a full refund will be issued as a credit back to the credit card from which it was charged.

All registrations will be processed on a “first come first serve basis” and be subject to availability.  Class sizes WILL be limited; therefore, it is strongly recommended that interested participants register early.  Once class sizes have reached their capacity the online system will automatically close out the event and a “Sold Out” message will appear in the registration area prohibiting any additional registrations.

“Walk-In” & Late Rate Registration

Will be accepted on a given convention date providing the event has not been “Sold Out,” and will still be subject to availability on the convention date.  Additionally, Walk-In registrants will be charged the late rate of $145.00.

Observer Wristbands are Non-Refundable and may not be transferred from one person to another. USTD will not be held responsible for lost or stolen wristbands.
