Masquerade Registration Options

Friday, 22 May 2015 00:32

The Saturday Masquerade has some new options this year.

First, there are two options to sign up this year.

  • Option 1: Paper Entry Form. This is the same form used in previous years.
  • Option 2: NEW - Google Form and Signed Agreement to Rules Form.

In both cases, you are not registered until all group members have signed the Masquerade rules acknowledging that you have read, and agree to abide by, all masquerade rules, and it has been accepted and reviewed by Masquerade staff.

Read the Entry Form section of the Saturday Masquerade page for more information.

Second, with the move to the North Building of the TCC, we will be providing a bag check and changing rooms. Participants will be able to drop off their costumes and props starting at 10:00 AM on Saturday at the North Building of the TCC and will be able to change there instead of walking over in costume. The bag check room will close 30 minutes after the Masquerade ends so all items must be retrieved by then.
