How to select your Ringing Position

After you fill out the registration form and hit the submit button, you will receive an instant on screen confirmation of your registration or a note telling you that you missed a required field.  At the bottom of the confirmation is a link to the payment portal.  You will also receive an email with this information. When you click on this link it will take you to our payment portal which will describe how you can pay for your residency and VIP guests.  There will be a green button that says      Tickets     .Simply click on that button and it will take you to the Position selection page where you will see all of your option for buying tickets.
 THIS IS IMPORTANT - PLEASE READ
If you are buying tickets to be a performer you MUST use the venue map which is located on the right hand side of the screen in yellow dots if you are on a desktop computer and it will be above your ticket options in a mobile browser. A sample of the venue map is right below this paragraph.  There are currently 14 of each playing position on the map.
