General Policies

GMs must be registered before their games will be scheduled. GMs have two registration choices, Judge or Referee.

Registering as a Judge costs the same as a Player registration and gives the attendee the ability to participate in other events at the convention. In addition, Judges who are fully paid and have their games submitted before the event submission deadline are eligible for a Judge’s Premium: either a discount on their registration price or a free convention t-shirt.

Registering as a Referee is free, but the only thing a Referee can do is run their own events. Referees cannot participate in other convention events, nor do they receive any of the premiums that Judges receive.

Events will not be scheduled until after the GM is registered.

To be included in the Events Book, games must be submitted by the event submission deadline and all Judges/Referees for the games must be fully registered by that time as well. If an Event Proposal is a little late, every reasonable effort will be made to include it in the book. However, due to the workload needed to produce the Events Book, it is not possible to guarantee that any events received after the deadline will be able to be processed and included in the book.

Both Judges and Referees must agree to follow the GM Policies.

 

Refund Policy:
The convention must receive a registration refund request message sent via the proper channels (support site or info@conofthenorth.org), no later than one week before the start of the convention, in order to guarantee a refund. After this, refunds will only be considered on a case by case basis by the Registration Magnetron
(Director). Accepting your registration packet at the convention waives your option to seek a refund.Refunds will be paid out in a manner similar to how the registration was paid, and will be processed within 60
days of the request, and no later than the “After-Con Review” meeting (please check the convention timeline
on the website for details about this meeting). Refunds will be up to the amount paid for registration only.
Payments for additional merchandise (shirts, etc.) will not be refunded; the additional merchandise will be shipped to you and your registration refund will be reduced to cover shipping and handling fees.

Under no circumstances will refunds be paid out at, or during the convention, or in cash.

Transfer Policy:
The convention must receive a registration transfer request message sent via the proper channels (support site
or info@conofthenorth.org), no later than one week before the start of the convention, in order to process the transfer; after this, transfers will only be considered on a case-by-case basis by the Registration Magnetron (Director). This request must come from the person giving away their registration (transferor), and must contain the full registration details for the person receiving the registration (transferee). Accepting your
registration packet at the convention waives your option to transfer your registration.

NOTE: Additional items purchased with the original registration (shirts, etc.) will be transferred along with the registration. Any pre-purchased shirts may be exchanged, at the discretion of the Operations staff, for a shirt of a different size based on availability of the desired new size.
