Much like most movie and theater tickets, we

your ticket to another fan. If you do that, please contact the Convention Committee
immediately so that the membership can be transferred to that other person for a small
clerical fee. You may use the convention forum to find fans and solicit your ticket(s).

withdrawal from your checking account. Setting up a PayPal or Google account takes only a
few minutes, and both are very safe.
