War is ALMOST HERE!  This is your last chance to Pre-Reg for Estrella WAR!!!

[See link below for ACCEPS pre-registration]

Land Allotment - Please remember that land allotment will depend on Pre-Registration numbers only. Make sure to Pre-Reg and indicate which group you plan to camp with so that they will be allotted the appropriate amount of land.

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).

Greetings from THL Raven Mayne, Kingdom Minister of Arts and Sciences for the Kingdom of Atenveldt,

I have two very important and exciting announcements about Estrella War 2012 and reminder about 2013.

First-The Estrella War Arts and Sciences Competition Pre registration is now OPEN! Pre-Registration Ends Saturday March 3rd. Please read all of the Rules and aware of any changes that may have happened since last year.

Second, a reminder if you not heard already… the final decision has been made by their Majesties for the process of choosing the arts and sciences categories for Estrella War A&S Competition XXIX [2013]. An Official Poll has been created with 19 suggested titles. The final categories chosen will be announced at Estrella War XXVIII [2012]. Then they will be posted out to the Known World in more detail as soon as I am able.

I would ask that everyone please vote for our top three. The Official Poll is on the Kingdom of Atenveldt A&S Website, and soon will be on the Estrella War Website, both where the information about Estrella War A&S Competition XXVIII [2012] is located currently.
