Posted in Registration | Comments Off on Membership Rates Increase June 1

On June 1, membership rates in Westercon 64 increase to $75 for an attending membership. That will also be the price at the door. Single-day admissions will also be available at the door only; see the Registration page for details. If you expect to attend Westercon for more than one day, it’s cheaper to register now for $65 than to wait and pay more at the door. We will also be selling memberships at our table at BayCon. Save money and buy your membership in advance!

Although Westercon 64 is not operating a hotel roommate-matching service, we have put up a Room Sharing page where persons looking for a room-sharing arrangement can post comments offering or asking for a room match. Of course, Westercon 64 takes no responsibility for any room-sharing arrangements made through our website or elsewhere, and individuals are responsible for their own hotel arrangements.
