From Sir Koredono, Æthelmearc’s Land Agent for Gulf Wars:
This is a reminder that pre-registration for Gulf Wars closes in a week, on February 15. If you are planning on going, and have not pre-registered yet, please do so very soon. How much land the kingdom encampment gets is determined by the number of pre-registered campers we have – just like Pennsic – and if you don’t pre-register, we cannot guarantee that there will be a space for your tent in camp.
I received a list from the Gulf Wars Land Staff over the weekend, and there were only 12 confirmed gentles who had both pre-registered and had told them that they were camping with Æthelmearc; I know a few more had mailed in their payments close to the deadline, so there may have been a delay in processing the physical paperwork and getting the checks to clear, but I know many more people than were on that list were planning on attending.
Please don’t want until the last minute, as there is always the possibility of technical issues which may cause you to miss the deadline. If you’re not sure, but *think* you’re attending, you can get a full refund (less $5 processing fee) through March 1. Not to mention that it’s cheaper to pre-register than to pay at the door.
