Family Cap - There is a new family cap rate of Members=$150.00 (2 adults, 1 youth), Non-Members $160.00.  Additional qualifying youth would be considered “free”.  You must pre-register to take advantage of this offer as it is not available at the Front Gate.  For more information see the Estrella War website.

Deposit – The Deposit option is back this year.  Pre-registered attendees can choose to pay their site fees in full or make a one-time deposit.  The minimum for this deposit is $20 for each youth and adult being registered, but more can be deposited in $20 increments up to the full site fee. No further payments will be accepted online or via mail.  The one-time deposit reserves your pre-registration and any balance due must paid upon arrival to the War.  Your arrival date is dependent on the amount of money you deposit.  Only those who have paid in full their pre-registration will be allowed on site before general admission (Wednesday, March 28th, 2012 - 8:00 am).
