ARE YOU AN ACTIVE MEMBER OF H BTRY 3/14
If you are not a member of H BTRY 3/14 or the guest of a H BTRY 3/14 Marine or Sailor, you are required to register as a Non-affiliated guest and pay the Non-affiliated ticket price.
MARINES MUST PURCHASE TICKETS FOR THEIR GUESTS:
In order to ensure that Marine's Guests are seated with them, we require all registration to be made by the Marine. This will keep the Marine's name assigned to the guests and will help us take better care of those in attendance. Random "John Doe" registrations make it difficult to know who is with who and will lead to OVER BOOKING of the event.
Please limit guest totals to no more than (5) guests per Marine as space will be limited to 300 total people. Case-by-Case basis will be addressed through GySgt Sheridan as he is responsible for ticket sales and seating arrangements. These cases will not be addressed until after Nov 1st. This is to ensure that all Marines are provided an opportunity to purchase a seat in the Ballroom.
