On both the 'short' and 'long' registration forms be sure to indicate whether you're a Caller of Cuer (or both), and what levels of dancing you do. Also you need to fill out a Caller / Cuer profile and send it to the Vice Chairman of Squares and of Rounds. The form is available here on the website ... please complete the form and mail it in.

** Does Arkansas have 'toll roads'?
Arkansas does not have 'toll roads'.
Depending on which states you will be traveling through it may be a convenience to purchase a transponder.
E-ZPass is an electronic toll-collection system used on most tolled roads, bridges, and tunnels in the northeastern United States. The EZ Pass allows you to sail right through the toll booths and it costs less than paying the tolls as you go. It works in all 15 states that are part of the system. There is an initial fee for the box, which you stick on the windshield. More information is available on the web ... this link may be helpful.
** Will my registration packet be mailed?
No ... packets are not mailed. You can pick them up at the Registration Booth at the Convention Center.
** I'm already registered. How do I purchase additional items?
Simply go to the Registration Form page and bring up the Registration Form. Fill in your name and address, etc and your registration number if you have that available (which would be on your registration confirmation, and will assist us to keep all your items together), and check off the additional items you'd like ... Program Book, Wednesday evening show and dinner tickets, Sewing Book, etc, etc. Print out the form and mail it along with your payment ... it's that easy.
** When do I fill out the Long Registration Form?
As soon as you can. That lets us know what items you are interested in and allows us time to prepare your Registration packet before your arrival. Filling out the long registration form and mailing it in will speed up your check-in at Convention..
