Registration is open for the spring and fall 2021 virtual events. Fall virtual registrants will have the first option to switch to the in-person events upon approval.

Packet Pick-up

At this time, all virtual Flying Pig participants can expect to receive their items via mail. We will begin mailing Spring virtual premiums in June. We expect to mail Fall virtual premiums in November. Please note: international participants may experience additional mailing delays due to customs.
