Alcohol is not allowed at Pirate Swing. Our venues include University property and a facility associated with a child care provider - alcohol is not ok! We reserve the right to remove people from the event without refund if they violate this policy. Please don't jeopardize our ability to hold Pirate Swing in the future.
Yes, but Pirate Swing has grown large enough that we can no longer promise housing to everyone. If you have the financial ability to do so, please consider getting a room at a hotel (see next question).
The registration form will indicate when housing is full, so you will have that information before you complete registration. Those who apply for housing but do not pay in a reasonable amount of time will be dropped from the housing list to make room for others.
Yes! Details will be made available soon!
I can provide housing to out of town guests, what do I do?
Please select that you can provide housing when you register. If you can provide housing but will not be attending, please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
What is the nearest airport, and how can I get transportation to the workshop?
The closest airport is Detroit Metro Airport (DTW). The Michigan Flyer offers $12 each way fares between the airport and Ann Arbor. The Kensington Court Hotel is 1.8 miles from Concourse Hall, and would be the best location to shuttle to.
Pirate Swing counts on your payment to make the event happen, so we are unable to offer refunds. We are happy to help arrange a pass transfer on a case by case basis.
Please contact us so we can help you if you are no longer able to attend.
Pirate Swing now offers 2 and 3 month payment plans, to help spread out your registration cost. Additionally, you might consider a paid staff position. You can see our volunteer page for more information.
