  • Preregistration is required. No drop–ins. Payment must be made before the gathering begins.
  • Attendees must be 18 or older.
  • No alcohol. No recreational drugs. No weapons.
  • No pets or companion animals (except ADA–approved assistants).
  • Camping is encouraged, priority for indoor housing goes to those with special health needs.
  • We encourage carpooling as a way to conserve resources and connect with your fellow Billys.
  • Gatherings run on volunteer energy, so your participation is expected.
  • The fee for the gathering is on a sliding scale, and the minimum does not cover our costs. If you can afford to, please be generous and slide yourself up the scale. You’ll support the gathering and help other Billys attend.
  • If you request a scholarship, please pay as much as you can. Help us stretch our scholarship dollars to help as many Billys as possible.
