How do I qualify for this special rate?

To qualify for this discounted rate, Hitchhike Across the Galaxy must be the first IAGSDC convention you have ever attended. You must submit a letter from an officer or caller of your square dance club that verifies you have never attended any IAGSDC convention in the past to registration@hitchhikeacrossthegalaxy.com.

Hitchhike Across the Galaxy will provide this letter to All Join Hands, who will then subsidize your registration fee at the prevailing rate when you registered.
