IMPORTANT SUPPLEMENTAL REGISTRATION INFORMATION
Please read each item on the registration carefully and check the boxes that you desire. Read carefully so you don't miss something you need or want. During registration, you can back up and start over if you need to.
Turning 2017 will be held at The Higher Ground Conference & Retreat Center in rural West Harrison, Indiana. The center is located in a rustic area surrounded by rolling tree filled hills. This environment encourages attendees to stay on site, dine with new and old friends, and enjoy the camaraderie and open sharing of woodturning experience.
The fee for the various Symposium Demonstration Sessions Pass options DOES NOT INCLUDE meals for the day or days chosen.
If you are also registering Spouse, Guest or Child you will have to enter them as 'Guest' at the beginning of your registration process. When you see this:
Click 'Add Guest to Registration' and fill in the appropriate options for each guest or spouse.
Otherwise, click 'Next' if you want to continue your registration without adding any guests or after you are done adding Spouse and/or guests. You can add a Spouse or Guest to your registration when asked or you can register & pay for them on separate registrations now or later.
There are a variety of meal plans and options. Choose Thursday dinner, either alone or as part of the 9 meal plan, if plan to arrive Thursday or live locally and wish to join us for the slideshows on their work, presented by our professional demonstrators. There are 3-day, 8 or 9 meal options for a Spouse or Guest that will join you but not attend the Symposium Breakout Sessions (this option includes the Saturday Banquet). If Spouse or Guest will ONLY join you for Saturday Banquet there is an option for that also.
The on-site Check-in / Registration Desk will be located in the lobby of the Graves Family Life Center (opposite dining hall). The Graves Center is also the main location for Demonstrations as well as the Trade Show and Auction. Check-in / Registration Desk will open on Thursday, October 8, 2015, from 4:00 to 9:00 PM. It will reopen at 7:30 AM on Friday, Saturday, and Sunday.
Dormitory rooms DO NOT include linens or toiletries. Bring your own linens, pillows, towels and toiletries (including soap, shampoo, etc.) Linen packages are available from Higher Ground at a cost of $15. Separate dorm facilities are available for men and women. Most dormitory rooms will sleep four persons per room on the bottom level of bunk beds. A few dormitory rooms will sleep up to 8 people.
Lodge rooms are only available for all three nights. These are private rooms with 2 full-size beds and bathroom. Similar to hotel or motel. If you want to share a room with another Symposium attendee one of you should book the room and settle up finances outside of this registration system. No single night rentals available.
We prefer that you register online using a credit card. If you prefer you can select your options and then print your registration invoice and send a check.

Please join us at our premier biennial event. We are sure you will enjoy yourself, make new friends, pick up lots of new ideas, learn new techniques and acquire more wood and tools.
Lodge rooms go quick, so be sure to register early if you want a lodge room on site. Also, register by July 15th, 2017 to get the discounted price.
Your payment will be for the total of you and anyone else you register. You can pay by credit card on our secure site, or print an invoice and send a check.
Very Important: If the total of your registration including your guest registration & housing is going to exceed $1500.00 charge to your credit card please register and pay for yourself then create a second registration for your guest. The system will not accept charges over $1500.00.
