Want to try out the convention but aren’t willing to risk 75 or 95$ just to see if you’re going to like it? We will offer “Taster” memberships, which are only available at the convention. You pay the day’s rate and if you come back to Registration during posted open hours no later than 3 hours after you bought your membership, you will receive a refund of all but $20 (all but $10 in the case of child memberships).

Weekend memberships may be purchased any time, but cannot be picked up at Registration until 16:00 Friday August 7th. A Weekend membership provides access to the entire convention from 16:00 Friday through 08:00 Monday.

We will accept US dollars as well as Canadian dollars at Registration at the convention. Due to the volatility of the currency exchange market, at the door rates in US dollars will only be set a few days before the convention.
