Parents of children playing an event may play in the event with their child if space permits.

Redeeming Prize Room Day or Weekend Certificates

Online Registration: If registering online, an attendee will need to pay the full price. In the comment section, please notify us that you have a certificate with the certificate number. We will then check our records and if verified, we will refund the appropriate fee (weekend or day). However, the attendee will still need to bring the certificate to the convention to turn in when they pick up their badge. If the General Manager is unable to confirm the certificate number, they will be reimbursed onsite when they turn in the certificate while picking up their badge.

Onsite Registration: If registering onsite, the attendee may just bring the certificate with them and present it at the time of registration to receive their discount.

Registration questions can be forwarded to Christopher Spinney at
