A new feature this year is approval for attendees to receive continuing education credits for TWS and SAF professional certification programs. If you have not done so already, please register via the PayPal button below.

Food: Lunch on Thursday is included in your registration fee as well as coffee and snacks at the breaks. The Thursday night dinner is a catered BBQ (Cooked by GATWS member and Pitmaster Theron Menken). You must buy a $15 dinner ticket by August 30 so we can ensure there is enough food for attendees.
