Cranky Lady 

This lady is grumpy because she missed out on the preregistration discounts for Jamboree last year. Don't let that happen to you!

This is the last call for Jamboree pre-registration, which closes 11:59 p.m. PDT on Wednesday, June 1. This email will list links to all of the Jamboree activities in the SCGS online shopping cart. You can also call SCGS to register by phone with your credit card. 

 

Even if you've already registered and are set to go, keep reading to make sure you review all options open to you. We have added several activities in the past few weeks. Just click on the link to learn more about the activity. Meal menus are posted in the shopping cart listings, in case you're interested.  

 

If you have not signed up to receive email updates from the conference blog, take a minute to do that right now. Enter your email address where indicated on the right hand side of the screen. We will send updates every day between now and Jamboree, and you won't want to miss a word. 

 

SCGS Membership - SCGS members enjoy an additional discount. With a $35 annual membership, you can enjoy benefits all year long. Walk-in registrants will not receive a member discount, so this is your last chance to enjoy significant savings.
