• 2023/2024 East Duplin Beta Club 

    Remind codes: 

    Beta: @2324edhs

    Convention: @k3672bd 

    IMPORTANT INFORMATION -- APRIL 9TH

    Registration is 50.00 per person for the Convention.  Students have to be registered to participate. Registration is due by this Sunday, April 14.  If a parent would like Mrs. Bowles to register them, that money is also 50.00 per person and is due by this Sunday as well.  Parents or guests can register at the convention, but it is 55.00 at the convention.  Also, parents can buy a day pass for 25.00 at the Convention.  Parents, if you are only going for Group Talent, you may want to think about the day pass because if we don’t make the top 3, you would only need to be at the Convention for 1 day. Just something to think about and possibly save 25.00.  The student has to pay 50.00 either way and be registered in advance in order to be eligible to compete.
