A 20% deposit is due at the time of registration and no registration will be guaranteed until the deposit is received. The deposit must be calculated against the “total costs” shown on the registration form, including accommodations at Silver Bay (if applicable). Payments may be made through PayPal, check or money order. If for any reason, you do not get into any of your workshop choices, your 20% deposit will be refunded minus a $25 processing fee. Please keep in mind there may be competition to get into some workshops. Your place in the registration queue (first come, first serve basis) will be held as long as we receive your deposit within 10 days. The 20% Deposit is refundable IF (a) you notify in writing of your cancellation and such notification is RECEIVED before you have received confirmation of your registration (usually by April 1) in writing from Felters’ Fling. After that period, you will forfeit the deposit if you cancel your reservation at any time or for any reason. Additionally, you should seriously consider purchasing travel insurance from a reputable third-party provider if you would find loss of this deposit unacceptable. To mail a check rather than going through PayPal select the “check” box, then close out the registration site. Your information will be saved! Checks and money orders may be made out to “Beth Harwood” and mailed to PO Box 154, Franconia, NH  03580


The remaining balance (80%) of the total cost of the conference is due NO LATER THAN June 1, 2019. After that date, if balance has not been paid, your reservation may be given away to another interested participant with NO refund of your deposit. The 80% balance is refundable through August 1, 2019 ONLY IF (a) you notify in writing of your cancellation and such notification is RECEIVED no later than August 1, 2019, AND, 
(b) we are successful in finding a replacement for you from our wait list. Any such refund will NOT include the 20% deposit.  We encourage participants to pay their balance by check or money order, made payable to Beth Harwood, PO Box 154, Franconia, NH 03580, to minimize the fees charged by PayPal.
