Hi, I know FTF 2014 registration hasn't opened up yet, but the information
does not state where you register for FTF 2014. It states when members/non-members can register,
and where to go to sell already-purchased tickets. I know one year, it was done through www.active.com.

Does anyone have the actual link for registration?

Here is the page where the registration link will appear when tickets are on sale.


http://www.swampclub.org/member/aff/go/Kevan

Look for the Register Now button.

Actual Ticket options will appear on the 14th for SWAMP members and the 21st for non-members.

DuPont smoooth.

Done and ready.   Maybe my last year because cost is just tooooo much.   Price has been driven up by popular demand.

All good things must come to an end.

Have to give AFTF one more chance. This will be my sixth and my son's second.

Looking forward to an awesome time.

The attendance is limited by the park, it sells out in no time and it is Swamp's biggest fund raiser. Sorry, but until it doesn't sell out, the tickets are too cheap.

With member advance purchase, and fewer tickets available this year, it was cleaner to keep one price compared to last year.


However, at the current rate ticket sales are going.... it may not matter.


We are still less expensive than many similar events and we have ideas on how to lower costs for next year.

So basically if you aren't a member, then you don't go to  the festival. I am very disappointed about this since I waited all year to simply be denied even a remote chance of going.

we're only allowed so many participants--if it's a priority why not join the club and support the huge amount of trail maintenance (especially at Alafia)? for sale/trade should be plenty active so I'm sure you could still swing a ticket...but the club has zero influence over how many spots are available

AMEN, join and support our trails, if you ride them, give to them.   The best would be part of a trail crew but...  One day I will pick up a shovel and put up but for now, I give my small offerings to SWAMP because I can.  It is not about the event, it is about the way we live. ;D

I thought going to this event was "supporting" the trails especially since it is your biggest fund raiser according to the swamp site? I suppose that isn't good enough? Instead of being coercive, maybe let everyone know that there will NOT be a non-member sale and you have to join to even have a possibility of going. TIA

Too late. You needed to be a member before they sold out. Maybe it will buy you some favors.

I guess the event has become too popular.  I remember not too long ago, it took weeks to sell out. ??? ???

Next year, who knows.
