  1. I’ve been wondering what age you classify as a minor, who have to have parents that attend the event. At 16, I don’t think I would classify as a minor and just wanted to clarify this before the event.

    Hi Jayden, in Australia, I believe you are a minor if you are under 18 years of age. I’ve sent you some info about attending the event. Feel free to ask us if you have any more questions.

    Aranda: Yeah we have actually, you’ll have to give us your HO on this guy too 🙂 Thanks for the hot tip!
