Registration for the next jam is now open. This is where you will register for the next East Coast jam. The Fall jam will be from Wednesday evening, October 17 through Sunday afternoon, October 21, 2018. See details in the column on the right and please read the instructions - we want your registration to go smoothly! Please contact the organizers using address info in the right column if you have questions.

How To Register

To register for the East Coast Jam you must submit a completed registration form and pay at least the deposit. You can pay the deposit by credit card or PayPal online (via PayPal), or via a land-mailed check. In order for registration to work well, please read the following instructions carefully.

  • See the sidebar on the right, or the (less squished) upcoming-jam event page, for schedule and pricing details - the prices increase on certain dates, as the jam approaches.
    • You can pay online with a credit card or PayPal account, or you can pay by sending a check via land mail.
  • Registration requires a $50 deposit. (This applies towards your total payment, of course.) The deposit and any additional registration payment is refundable until the first Jam fee increase, around 2.5 weeks before the jam. After that the deposit is not refundable.
  • The full balance is due a week before the jam.
  • To participate you must agree to and sign the liability waiver. We will have copies to sign at the jam, but it would be handy if you can print one out and bring it with you.
  • To participate you also must agree to abide by the principles described in Respecting Boundaries. These principles help foster a good and safe jam for everyone, so please get acquainted with them!
  • (For background ECJ info, see the East Coast Jam "About" section. For jam organizer contact details, see the Contacts section at the bottom of the sidebar.)

Registration and Payment

To register you must complete our online registration form and pay at least a deposit. Completing the registration form will bring you to a confirmation message that includes links to our online payments page and to instructions for paying by land-mailed check.

(If you're already registered and wish to return to the online payments page, e.g. to pay your balance, you can find it here. To pay by check, send it to the registrar by land mail. See the sidebar on the right or the upcoming-jam event page for the registrar's contact info.)

Fall 2018 Jam

October 17-21, 2018 - Claymont Court, Charles Town, WV - about 1.5 hr car ride from DC

Here are the details for the 2018 Fall East Coast jam. Registration will be open in late August.

Official kickoff is Wednesday night, October 17 at 6:30 PM dinner. Jammers can begin arriving as early as 5:00. Contact us if you need to arrive earlier.

Our continuing mission: Sharing CI growth. Bring your whole dancing self, share quests and questions, explore!

See here for info about Claymont Court. See the East Coast Jam "About" pages to read about the jams and this site, in general. To register, follow the instructions on our registration page - but please see the jam-specific details, below, first. (A copy of this page is included in the right sidebar on the registration page.) Registration rates are organized around the actual costs, which vary depending on when and how you'll be attending!

Cost

  • The cost depends on your attendance and how soon you register.
  • A bed in a shared room and delicious meals are included in the charges. (Meals are vegetarian, and consist of simple breakfasts and full lunches and dinners.)
  • Blankets and pillow are included; sheets and towels are available for a small laundry fee, like $5 to $10 total.
  • Arranging to camp onsite reduces your cost by $20/night
    • Please let us know that you are camping when you register - use the "Special Attendance Notes" box.
    • You need to pay the difference if you wind up crashing indoors to escape weather, etc., and we might not have spare beds.
  • Children 11 and younger also get discounted food and lodging. Speak with the organizers (see below) to determine how that specifically affects your charge.

The basic rates for on-time registration, on or before September 30, depend on how many days you attend.


Attendance
$400 Full Jam - Wednesday dinner through Sunday lunch
$335 3 nights - Thursday after lunch through Sunday lunch
$250 2 nights - Friday after lunch through Sunday lunch
  • You don't have to attend through Sunday. For example, your last day could be Friday or Saturday.
  • Registration must be for a contiguous sequence of days, you can't register to skip days in between.

The actual cost depends on both your attendance plans and how soon you register. Here are the registration deadline offsets, with an example total based full-time attendance price:

Increase Amt Payment Dates Adjusted cost for Full Attendance
$0 On or before Sunday, September 30 $400 - on-time registration
+$50 Monday, October 1 until Sunday, October 7 (incl.) $450 - late
+$75 October 8 until registration closes (likely Oct. 14) $475 - avoid this option, don't delay!

Camping instead of staying in the mansion: reduces the figures by $20 per night. (It also frees up beds in the mansion for other jammers, so more people can attend the jam.)

DEPOSIT = $50. The deposit is refundable until the first fee increase deadline. It's not refundable after that point. Paying in full in advance can simplify things some, and everything besides the deposit is refundable until jam attendance. The balance is due on arrival.

Workstudy:

Workstudy is available, but get in touch with use promptly. Work study availability closes 2 weeks before the jam. Contact the workstudy organizer (see below) for details and arrangements.
