Just Over a Month Away!

While you're preparing your Sunday best to greet all your Laura friends in Brookings, we have a few more pieces of information to share with you this week.  

Last Chance for T-Shirt Sizes

The last chance to put in your request for a T-shirt size is FRIDAY, June 12 by NOON eastern time. Please visit the survey if you haven't by then—and if you've already completed it, thanks! Once is enough. Filling it out more than once throws us off like an October blizzard.

Reminder—Cancellation Deadline

You can get a full refund on your cancellation only through June 15, and half off only through June 30. More details here.

Who's Donating to the Silent Auction?

LIWLRA board member Connie Neumann, Silent Auction Coordinator, would like to remind you that we'll be holding our third Silent Auction in Brookings! If you have any questions or want to donate, all the info is on this page.


Release Form

We've been asked by South Dakota State University, the conference's location, to require all registrants to sign this release form. Either print it and bring a signed copy to the conference, or sign one when you check in.

Bringing a Minor?

Registrants who will be responsible for an individual under the age of 18 will also have to sign this form. As with the release, either bring it with you or we will have one for you to sign when you check in.

Backward, Turn Backward, O Time In Thy Flight...

Send yourself back, whether you were there or not, to LauraPalooza 2012. Some attendees were live-tweeting the whole event. If you're going to the conference this year, we want you live-tweeting too! Use the hashtag #laurapalooza15. (We said #laurapalooza earlier, but there's a chance that could refer to a non-Little House event!) 

Registration Deadline: June 30

If you know anyone on the fence who is planning to attend but hasn't yet, please remind them that only registrations in by JUNE 30 are guaranteed printed registration materials and a reservation for the catered meals.

You can also post on Facebook and encourage anyone who might want to register to visit the Beyond Little House Facebook page or the conference's website at to learn more.

See you soon! We haven't been this excited since Hector was a pup!
