Registration for Weetacon 2017
Are you ready for a weekend of entertainment and socializing? Your $129 registration covers Weetacon dramatic plot twists, a few fun and local food favorites, and a private rock star karaoke party.

Whether you’re looking to reconnect with old friends, gain new friends, meet some online personalities in person or just have something entertaining to do during the depths of deep dark winter, we’re waiting for you in Green Bay!
How To Register for Weetacon
Open registration for Weetacon 2017 starts on November 1, 2016.
You can either use Paypal (Use FAMILY AND FRIENDS payment type and send to Weetabix at gmail dot com) or send a paper check via mail (email for instructions).
Unfortunately, because Weetacon operates completely over budget, we can’t absorb the Paypal fees for the money transfer, so we ask you to cover that convenience. Paypal registrations that are sent as Commercial will be returned and the registration won’t be complete/saved.
Weetacon 2017 registration should be received by February 1, 2017 (or before the capacity cap is reached) to allow us to purchase food and communicate final numbers to our vendors but we will put forth our best efforts to accommodate late registrations. Similarly, we will refund 100% of your registration up until Jan 1, 2017, and we will do our best to find someone to take your spot after that point. Due to the logistics of planning an event of this nature, we appreciate your understanding that our rates are based upon the assumption that we can fill a certain number of spots on the bus/sleighs/rooms/etc.
The beauty of our little gathering is that we all come from different backgrounds, culturally, religiously, and socio-economically. For years, several Weetacon angels have been rounding up their registration fees (by five, ten, thirty dollars or so) to contribute to the “Weetacon Tribal Fund.” This fund is an extension of our open door policy and helps cover registration for attendees in need. The “leave a penny take a penny” concept has helped at least one person every year (and often more than one). The Tribal fund is administered by and under the discretion of Wendy Bix and both the donors and the beneficiaries of said fund are completely confidential, with the exception of one trusted adviser who is on copy of all emails and donations as well as has line of sight on the financial spreadsheets.
Weetacon Waiting List Policy
In the event that we have reached capacity, we will open a Waiting List. Weetacon sells out so early that it’s very common for our attendees to have life throw unexpected conflicts at them and they are unable to attend. When those spots open up, we will turn to the Waiting List in first come, first served priority.
To get on the Weetacon Waiting List, send a deposit on your registration (anywhere from the minimum $25 deposit to the $129 full registration) through either a personal check or PayPal (mark your payment as Friends and Family for fee/tax reasons). This deposit will hold your place in line. When a space opens up, we’ll send you an invoice for the remaining balance and you will have no more than 7 calendar days to pay the remaining balance before we move to the next person on the Waiting List. Of course, we’ll just automatically register you if you paid the full registration of $129. If you are on the waiting list and space does not open, you will receive a refund, minus any fees that PayPal extracts.
