--- Registration Q & A ---
Q: I missed the registration deadline, can I still attend?
A: Yes, you can still sign up on AskFRED at double fees. If you pay at the door, the fees will be triple.
Q: I missed the registration deadline, can you make an exception and let me pay the normal rate?
A: No, the event has been accepting registrations on AskFRED since August so you had plenty of time to register on-time.
Q: Can I pre-register and pay later?
A: Sort-of. Pre-register on AskFRED like you normally would, but skip the payment screen. This will add you to the list of registrants, but note that you have not yet paid. You can pay later (before the deadline) by simply going through the registration process on AskFRED again.
Q: I don't want to pre-pay until I'm certain I can attend.
A: If you pre-pay and are unable to attend, we will give you a refund of your event fees. Registration fees are non-refundable.
Q: Can I fence more than one event per day?
A: Yes, but not simultaneously. If you are still fencing in your first event when the second one starts, you will need to scratch from one of them.
