The “doors open” time is when registration opens, when you pick up your name tag and find your seat. Unless otherwise noted, events begin 30 minutes after registration opens.

Visa, MasterCard, Discover, American Express, check and cash. If you prefer to pay at the door, we require a credit card to hold your space. If you send a check, please reserve your space in advance by calling 206.682.7395. All payments must arrive no later than three (3) days prior to the event.

We do not validate parking. For some events there are venue provided discounts. Ask at the event registration desk for a voucher if applicable.
