We heard about Encounter from:
Please check all that apply
Group Leader/Contact Signature- please type your full name *
I understand that this is just a GROUP reservation for the total number of expected participants and we will be invoiced at $100 per person reserved. Actual participant spots are not fully guaranteed until individual registration forms are printed, signed and sent to Encounter. Any deposit paid will be balanced against the total number of participants actually registered for final balance due. I also agree NOT to exceed my expected number without prior approval from Encounter.
