CTA Early Bird discount extended to Friday 22 Jul

In some great news for the procrastinators among us, we have extended the Call To Arms Early Bird discount to the 22nd of July.

Those of you who have all ready paid the non discount rate, a refund will be made to make sure all Early Birds get the extended discount.

Be sure you pay for your registration by the 22nd of July.

That’s right you have to actually pay before the deadline, not just register, an important point to remember.
