Plenty of people have registered so far, but due to some late promotion, we've decided to extend the registration deadline until Friday August 26th as to allow more people to get involved.

Even though the deadline has been extended, we encourage you to register as soon as possible so we can have a better idea of numbers for food and accommodation.

So please, head to the registration page to register before Friday August 26th.
