REMEMBER - SEND YOUR PAYMENT SOON!


Payment for online, faxed or phone entries must either be mailed or sent by PayPal within 24 hours.

We reserve the right to cancel entries for which payment has not yet been received. you plan to pay at the door, you should also plan to pay the $25 late fee!


PAY AT THE DOOR?
Yes, you can pay at the door. But it'll cost you $25 extra!
All entries not paid in advance (by 10:00 PM on Sunday, October 31, 2021) are subject to a $25 late fee
.

Why? Because collecting entry fees at the door really slows down the check-in process. Also, the club really needs to collect funds up front: most of our expenses must be paid before the show starts.


(The fine print: Any exhibitor whose payment has not been received for any reason by
10:00 PM on Sunday, October 31, 2021 will be assessed a $25.00 late fee. Payment at the door will be at the sole discretion of the Entry Clerk, will be subject to the $25.00 late fee, and MUST be paid in cash. No exceptions!)
