HVABSA does not accept checks. If you need to pay by cash, the deadlines still apply and you will need to make arrangements with us to drop off a cash payment. Please Note: our events typically sellout EARLY, so don't delay, pay early to secure your spot (our goal is to schedule over that weekend and post schedules on Monday/Tuesday).
