Frequently Asked Questions

How do I compete in the APWG?
Have a look at the packages on offer in the 'Packages' page and work out what you want. Then, use the 'On-line Registration' form to register for the APWG. Use one (1) On Line Registration per person. Make sure all your details are correct, especially your e-mail and phone contact details. Just putting in a address or PO Box with no other way that we can contact you will mean that your registration will not be accepted. You will then be asked to pay for your booking or you may pay initial deposit fee of $500 (DON'T FORGET TO PUT YOUR NAME AS REFERENCE). If you choose to pay a deposit the balance will become due one month prior to the games. Then on the Sunday afternoon of the games you attend the venue to complete the registration process for the APWG. After that, let the Games begin!!!
