Bannthegn Penelope Dowell of Avonsford, Pre-registration Registrar for Estrella War XXIV (Feb 12-18, 2008), announced today that last week's difficulties with online pre-registrations are now resolved -- just in time to pre-register by the October 31, 2007 deadline needed to get the MOST DISCOUNTED entrance fees!
Last week's problem affected all SCA events using the ACCEPS (Ansteorra Credit Card Event Payment System) for online pre-registration, not just pre-registrations for Estrella War. The difficulty was caused by Pay Pal processing of credit cards, and was not an issue with the ACCEPS site itself. ACCEPS has assured the Estrella War Staff that those experiencing the pre-registration problems will not have any extraneous fees charged to their credit card accounts.
If you had problems processing a pre-registration for Estrella War and have not received an email confirmation for your pre-registration, or if you have questions related to online registrations processed in the last week, please contact Bannthegn Penelope at pennydowell@ cox.net [OMIT SPACES].
