BLFC reserves the right to revoke your registration (generally only if you violate the code of conduct).

FAQ

What's the benefit of pre-registering?

  • Save money
  • Save time
  • Pick your favorite badge art

How do I pick badge art?

You cannot pick at-con; you must choose in the pre-registration system. You can change your choice until April 30th, so always pick your current favorite from the available choices.

Why isn't my payment showing?

Payments may take 2-3 days to post; please be cautious of sending more payments until your account has been credited.
If you're still concerned, Contact staff.

How can I confirm I'm registered?

Paid registrations are sent a confirmation email, but your spam filter may have eaten it. To check manually, log into registration, and check if you have a balance due.

Will there be one-day registration?

There are no one-day badges. Instead, the weekend badge price is reduced on Saturday and Sunday.

What is acceptable ID?

Any government-issued photo I.D. ( Driver's License, State I.D., or Passport ).

Can I get a refund?

Until March 5th. See "if I can't make it" below.

What if I can't make it?

If your last registration payment was less than a year ago, you can have the payment forwarded to next year. You can choose to be sent the swag you would have gotten instead of having the payment forwarded. If the payment sits for an additional year, you will be sent items for the current year.

Upgrading?

You can upgrade until April 30th by picking the higher tier in reg, and paying the difference. Upgrades are not available after that.

Downgrading?

Not allowed. There are too many pre-ordered items that cannot be returned.

How do I pay without a credit/debit card?

You can snail-mail a money order or check; instructions are in the registration system.
