Get Your Registration Form Here!

Five days until Blitz!  All con attendees need to register each year, and many seem to do this on the day of the con – save time and get your form filled out now!  Forms can be found here if you are over 18 and here if you are under 16 (**REMEMBER YOUR PARENT OR LEGAL GUARDIAN WILL HAVE TO SIGN**). You will not be allowed entry into the con nor get your wristband without it.  Each year there are crowds of people at the entrance who did not fill out their forms and they miss out on much of the early action.  Don’t be one of those this year!  Be a Blitz Champion and have your forms filled out and ready to hand to admissions when you arrive!  Also, volunteers will be taking these forms and handing out wristbands to those who are coming to The Roxy on Friday, so if you have one ready for us and want to skip the lines on Saturday please bring them on Friday!
