I'll be there :)

Always excited to have bwca.com folks attend. The boundary waters is such an amazing place in the winter. Getting to visit some of the areas that we have previously traveled to during open water season is really fascinating.

I'll be there, also. One of my favorite events.
09/16/2016 05:32PM
I'll be there. Awesome time!

FYI Matt (Soledad) is humble-he is one of the organizers.

I figured you would be there with your Snowtrekker tent.

Someone should plan a BWCA.COM get together or event during the symposium.

If you come, you can spot me pretty quickly. I'm the guy with the white Snowtrekker Tent. ;)

Seriously, however, I encourage everyone on this board to attend. It may open up a whole new world of adventure for you.

I have never attended this event, is there an admission fee for those not planning on staying overnight?

I guess I must be missing something? The 2015 online registration page says general admission as $30, camping and cabin at $30/night. However, when I click the 2016 WCS regIstration link there is not an option for general admission, only a camping/RV and lodging option.

Maybe general admission is taken at the entrance?

General Admission is $30. It is listed on this page as General Registration. Registration

Yeah, just pay when you arrive. Registration is really to help get an idea of how much food Camp Miller will need to have and how many cabins they need to open up.

I am excited to have all of you around. I'll wear my BWCA.com hat though I will be running around like a chicken without a head to put it on. :)

Is the $30 for the whole event or is there a daily fee.

I believe that is the registration fee for the whole weekend, not a daily fee.

Does Anyone know the cost per person to attend during the day on Saturday?

Email Soledad who posted earlier in this topic. He is staff on the Symposium and would know if there is a lesser daily fee. Although I imagine it will still be $30 as that is when most of the classes, seminars and workshops are.

I can't make it this year but hope to someday.

quote Merlin: "Does Anyone know the cost per person to attend during the day on Saturday?"
In the past when I have attended for the day on Saturday it has still been $30. As mentioned Saturday is the big day with most of the seminars (some of the workshops happen Friday), vendors present, gear swap, keynote speakers, silent auction. If you can only make it for the day it is still well worth the price of admission. I would make an effort to stay until at least dinner time if you are interested in the gear swap. And with the key note speakers, later the musical entertainment and barley pops I'd tell the significant other not to wait up;)

Had a great time, as usual. The weather was great.

A great event as usual. Lots of great people to learn from, and hear the passion in their hearts firsthand.

Kawishiwashy,
I am not sure you will find a better representation of the symposium than right Here! That link does cover multiples years so go to the bottom for this year's event.

Another good album
