Payment and Cancellation Policy

A. Credit Card Hold. As a condition of registering for this program, we require a consensual “hold” on a VISA® or MASTERCARD® account equal in amount to the full cost of participation above the initial registration deposit. At your option, amounts which come due prior to the end of the program may be otherwise paid by you, or billed against the amount being “held.” Failure to make a payment will be deemed consent to billing against the amount being “held.”

B. Registration. At the time of registration, a $750 deposit is to reserve your spot. This deposit may be charged on a credit card account, and is partially refundable, in some events, through the advertised deadlines in sections D and E.
