Membership/Registration

We reserve the right to limit registration to 450 attending members (including Young Adult and Child members) due to the capacity of the Tonopah Convention Center.

Before purchasing a membership in Westercon 74, please read our list of membership types (most people should purchase an Attending membership) and our data protection notice (which explains how we handle any data we collect from you).

If you did not vote in Westercon 74 Site Selection, you can buy a new supporting or attending membership online through Grenadine or download our current registration form and mail it by postal mail with payment by check, money order, or credit card. What we call a “membership” is what Grenadine labels a “ticket.” Westercon does not sell “tickets,” as every person is a member of Westercon 74, but Grenadine’s online registration system labels all types of admissions as “tickets.”

Credit card payments through Grenadine (online registration) are processed by Stripe. If you have ever made a payment through Stripe, you may have opted to use Stripe’s “remember me” function. If so, you will receive a text to verify the transaction (two-factor authentication). Should you wish for Stripe to “forget” you, see see this article from Stripe technical support. Neither Grenadine nor Westercon 74 stores your credit card information. All online credit card transactions go through Stripe.

If you join online, please make sure that you advise us whether you want to receive pre-convention publications by paper mail and whether you want to be excluded from our public listings (web site and print). By default, we will send progress reports to you electronically and we will list your name (badge name if specified differently) on our web site and in our publications.

Credit card payments made in person at our fan table are processed through Square. If you have previously made a payment through Square, you may have been asked for your e-mail address or phone number so that they could send you a receipt. If you use the same card, that information is used to send the new receipt. Should you wish to unsubscribe from Automatic Receipts, see this article from Square. Westercon 74 does not have this information unless you give it to us on your registration form, nor do we store your credit card information.

Because of fees charged by online registration processors, if you voted in 2021 Westercon Site Selection and did not convert your voting (supporting) membership to attending in person at SpikeCon, we ask that if possible you download our registration form (see below) and mail your $10 conversion by check or money order to us at the address below. The $10 conversion to attending rate for site selection voters is valid through February 29, 2020. Thereafter, anyone who voted without converting their membership to attending may convert their membership to attending by paying the current attending membership rate minus the $20 paid to vote in the 2021 Site Selection.

You can also join by downloading our current registration form and mailing it with payment by check, money order, or credit card to:
