Q: What are the pricing tiers?
A: $120 full weekend through February 28th, 2021, $130 thereafter including walk-in (March 1st until the RG). Daily rates (Fri only, Sat only, Sun only) and Child weekend prices will not change.
Q: What if I just want to come for an hour?
A: You can join for only an hour, but you still need to register for at least the full day you want to attend…. so you might as well enjoy the full day you’re paying for 🙂
Q: What meals are included in the full weekend rates?
A: Friday dinner, Saturday breakfast, Saturday lunch, Sunday breakfast and Sunday lunch. We have raised our rates to include the extra meal and to make necessary accommodations to our Hospitality strategy for COVID-19 concerns (i.e. prepackaged foods, non-buffet).
Q: Will hospitality be open during Saturday night dinner so I can have other foods?
A: Only light hospitality (snacks, etc) will be available.
Q: How are minors handled?
A: We’re working on a kid’s program (more to follow!). If we don’t have a kid’s program, minors (under 18) must be accompanied in the RG space (speaker rooms, hospitality, games) by a registered (paid) adult.
Q: Do I have to decide now if I want Saturday night dinner?
A: No, but the number of meals is limited and tickets sold out last year! We’ll let you know when we determine the last date you can place your order for the meal.
Q: If I paid for the full weekend, but didn’t want the dinner, can I still listen to the keynote speaker?
A: Unfortunately no, due to space restrictions, only attendees with tickets to the dinner are eligible to attend the keynote.
Q: Why is the Saturday night dinner a separate purchase?
A: Many members have requested this option. RG budgets are difficult, at best, but we worked to find a way to offer this separate dining option for RG attendees who wanted to enjoy the RG but preferred to have other dinner options on their own.
Q: Will the Saturday night dinner be worth it?
A: We think so! But, then again, worth is all relative. That’s a decision you’ll have to make for yourself. We can tell you that we are working closely with the hotel to provide a quality meal.
Q: Are dinner tickets or registrations refundable?
A: Refunds will be issued if you need to cancel before 4/30/2021 with a 10% fee, or you can choose to transfer your registration to next year. Any cancellations between 5/1/2021 and 6/15/2021 will transfer to next year. Any cancellations after 6/15/2021 are forfeit, because we’ve already used your money to buy supplies and food in anticipation of your arrival 🙂
Q: What about my special meal requirements?
A: Hospitality will offer snack options for a variety of dietary choices/needs. Options will be available for omnivores, vegetarians, and those eating gluten-free. Meal options will include items for omnivores and vegetarians (gluten-free is available for the banquet only if requested before June 15, 2021). Attempts to minimize cross contamination will be made, but cannot be assured. We cannot guarantee that any particular dietary need will be met.
Q: What about add-ons?
A: At minimum, you need to register for the RG for the day of the add-on session you’d like to attend. If you’d like to attend the Friday night scotch tasting, you need to be registered for at least Friday. If you’d like to attend the Saturday night wine tasting, you need to be registered for at least Saturday. If you’d like to attend the Sunday cruise, you need to be registered for at least Sunday.
