Send your registration, along with full payment. Make checks payable to INCH.

Mark the number of tickets needed in the appropriate groupings, as well as the free ones (thru 2 years of age)

We will meet at the Silverwood main courtyard (near the top of the stairs) for ticket pick up, at 10:30am. The park opens by 11:00am. Please be prompt. If you are not there by 11:00am, you can pick up your tickets at the Will Call window, under INCH Homeschool Group and the name under which you ordered them.
