BotCon 2016 Registration Update!12/17/2015 - Merry Christmas, Happy Hanukkah and Happy New Year!

We are still finalizing the registration system move to the new server. This has taken longer than expected due to issues with the old programmer. Their non-cooperation has caused us to have to rebuild the original version of the registration software from back-ups.

We do not want to impact your Christmas funds as we are entirely too close at this point to start registration. The current plan is open registration in mid-January.

We hope this relieves any anxiety you may have concerning BotCon registration and helps with your funds planning.

Thanks for your support and have a great holiday season!
