    • The registration options listed on this website are the only registration options available. There will be no "Saturday only" or other partial attendance rates are available.  This allows us to maximize the number of people who attend to full weekend, which is central facilitating community, an integral mission of the Gathering.  It also helps us ensure we can cover our costs (venue, food, speakers, etc).  The pricing is set as low as possible to cover these costs.  Sign up for the early bird to get the best rate possible!
    • Refund policy: If you register and are unable to attend, you must let us know at least 7 days prior to the event to receive a refund.  
    • No dogs allowed on campus (venue policy, sorry!)
    • No smoking (of any kind) allowed on campus (venue policy, sorry!)
    • You'll need to fill out a medical liability waiver.

    Need a ride? Have space in your ride?  Join our carpool list!
