News for 2015!
     Good news and bad news. We raised our ticket prices a dollar, but you can still get a great deal by ordering your tickets in advance. For each $7 Advance Admission Ticket ordered you will receive a FREE Extra Prize Ticket - a $1 Value. That gives you double the chances to win Door Prizes and Main Prizes. Keep in mind, we haven't raised the admission price since 2007! Order forms will be available early in 2015.
     We also had to raise the price of tables since our rental/setup/teardown cost went up to about $12. In 2014, we just ate the extra cost, but we can't do that again. We dislike raising prices, but to continue bringing the best show possible with great prizes, the increases for GLH-2015 had to be done.
     So, we're having a little price increase. What hasn't gone up in the last 7 years? Join us for the fun. We'll be lining up some great Forums, prizes and fun for GLH-2015 on Saturday, September 12, 2015 at Paroquet Springs Conference Centre. Mark your calendar NOW to join us!
