the basics

General Registration runs from December 16th (12:01am), 2019 until midnight (11:59pm) on February 7th, 2020. Registration ends prior to the date of the event to allow time to compile class lists and print thousands of registration forms and blue cards. There will be no on-site, day-of registrations. Changes to registrations may be made until registration closes on February 7th, 2020. 

We've been at this for over 20 years now, and there's not much we haven't tackled along the way. One of the best places to start is our Facebook page. That's where you'll find a ton of general information about MBU. Like Us and you'll be instantly connected to the latest announcements and alerts and latest news about MBU. 

Thanks from your All-Volunteer MBU Support Team
