I understand that student IDs, pay stubs, and notes from my mother are NOT accepted at this convention.  I understand if I try to register with an unacceptable ID, I will be denied admission.  I understand this policy is required by law and not subject to staff discretion.

Mail-in Registration

If you cannot register online, print out our mail-in registration form and mail it along with your payment to the address listed on the form.  Cut off the receipt on the bottom of the page to keep for your records.  This receipt is not proof of receipt of payment unless we have the corresponding top part of the form.  If you do not receive email confirmation of the receipt of your mail-in registration, please contact us immediately.


Full refunds (or credit for the next year’s convention) will be given if the request is received on or before July 31st.  Half refunds (or half credit) will be issued on requests received on or before August 7th.  No refunds or credits will be issued after August 7th.

Rules for Minors

If you are under the age of 18 as of the start of the convention, we require you bring a signed and notarized Parental Consent Form with you when you come to the Registration desk.  If you pre-register, you can mail this form in as long as you send it before the pre-registration deadline.  “Notarization” means the consent form has been signed in front of a Notary Public, who merely verifies the identity of the person signing the form (your parent or guardian).  (Note:  Often a town/city hall will offer free notarization for its citizens.)

Children 12 and under can attend Tiny Paws con for FREE.  However, they must get a badge (Tinker level admission only) from Registration and must be accompanied by a parent or legal guardian (who is registered for the convention) at all times.  All minors must present a signed and notarized copy of the Parental Consent Form at the Registration desk.  If the minor’s parent or legal guardian is physically present at the Registration desk while the minor is registering, a non-notarized copy of the Parental Consent Form may be used.  However, the parent or legal guardian must present a valid copy of their legal identification -- passport, driver’s license, US state- or foreign government-issued photo ID (official ID issued instead of a driver’s license), or military photo ID -- to the staff.  No exceptions will be made to this policy.

If you are turning 18 during the convention, you are still required to bring your notarized Parental Consent form.  However, on the morning of your birthdate, report to the Registration desk with your photo ID and receive a new label for your badge so you are no longer listed as a Minor.

Late Arrivals

If you know you will be arriving late and want to participate in any late-night convention activities (this particularly pertains to our Gaming events), please contact the This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. as soon as possible.  We cannot make any guarantees, but we will do our best to accommodate you.

Attendees MUST be pre-registered for the convention to have any hope of picking up their badge after Registration has closed.

If you do not know you are going to be late until the day of the convention, it is possible you will not be able to attend any late-night events since it may be impossible to contact Registration staff at that time.  We understand travel delays can happen unexpectedly, but please try to plan ahead as much as possible.  If you have a friend who is on-site earlier in the day, contact them and ask them to go to Registration to pass on your request (using your full legal name).  They will NOT be able to pick up your badge for you, bu the staff will be made aware of your request and the approximate time of your arrival.
