You can attend Hill Country Harmonica one of several ways:
Go to Hill Country Harmonica Registration page fill out registration form and pay via the Paypal Link on that page.
WE WOULD STRONGLY PREFER THAT YOU PAY IN ADVANCE. This is for your benefit as well as ours: advance payment guarantees you a spot at the event, and it helps us accurately assess the supplies and personnel we'll need to have on hand.
You can pay when you arrive, but we will limit the event at 150 attendees, and 30 campsites.
There are small upcharges on registration and camping for those who do not pay by May 1st.
Two additional notes:
1) Girlfriends, boyfriends, husbands, wives, and teenaged children--i.e., non-harmonica-playing Significant Others--are welcome for an additional fee of $50 per person.
. (If you're an attendee who plans to bring more than two SO's, please contact us to discuss a further price break.)
2) All children 15 and under, including those who play harmonica (or want to learn) may attend FREE, as long as they're accompanied by a full-price attendee. (Please email us in advance so that we can have passes ready for them. If we receive enough queries in this direction, we will organize a breakout session specifically for kids.) This offer comes with a proviso: "attend" means that children 15 and under may be present at Foxfire Ranch during the event. Unless they're reasonably quiet and well-behaved, and/or intent on learning the harmonica, we request, as a favor to your fellow registrants, that you do NOT bring them onto the Pavillion and into the breakout sessions while instructional activities are taking place. Caretakers are a good idea. Single parents of smaller children should probably not attend HCH.
We want to encourage you to make this a family event, in other words.
The fee of $225 is comprehensive: it gets you onto the grounds of Foxfire Ranch and admits you to everything we've got going on for 4 days and 4 nights.
The fee does NOT include food (breakfast, lunch, and dinner will be available at the gazebo for $8-12 per meal) or beer and wine (which will also be sold at the gazebo). You may bring your own food and/or drink in a cooler at no charge. If you want to camp on the grounds of Foxfire Ranch, you'll need to pay via Paypal or contact us for Cabin Availability. If you want more deluxe campsites, a motel room, or a B&B, those are available offsite and you'll need to make arrangements yourself.
