Children below 7 years old will not be allowed to attend the event for safety and security reasons. 7 to 12 year olds may attend but should be accompanied by an adult, 21 years or older. All attendees, regardless of age will have to register and pay the full fee.
Will Alden and Maine attend the event?
As much as we would love to have Alden and Maine to join us, we cannot guarantee their attendance.
They are very busy individuals, however, we will exert all efforts to invite them to come home as well.
When is the registration?
Registration officially opened on Sunday, June 3rd.
The last batch is currently open and will officially close ton Saturday, September 8th.
Registration is on a first come, first served basis.
Can I just walk in at the event on October 21?
Unfortunately, you will have to be pre-registered to join the event, as very limited slots are available.
We will announce on Twitter of circumstances change.
Is there a way I can register for the VIP section?
No. This is a general admission event.
Seats are on first come first served basis.
Since this will be an interactive event, seats are not guaranteed for all (except for Seniors and PWDs).
The hall is carpeted, however, and attendees may hang around picnic style.
What if I paid already but didn't have a chance to go back to the form to register?
Any payment made with no corresponding registration will go to donations.
Please make sure to check our updates on Twitter first BEFORE making a payment to make sure there are still slots and that the registration is still open. Once you've made a payment, immediately fill up the form to secure your slot.
In the event that slots get filled and registration closes the moment you pay (while at the bank, etc) and you are not able to access the forms anymore, do not panic.
Please contact us immediately so we may assist you and make a form available for you.
Payments made a day/days after we close the registration will go to donations.
What does the "ADN Students" part of the Slots Pie Chart mean?
On June 3rd, we opened via Twitter a special registration form for high school and college students of ADN, who wish to attend the Homecoming but need more time to save up for the fee. This gave them a chance to sign up without immediate payment. Because of limited slots, the form filled up just a few hours after its release and is now officially closed.
These are the slots under the ADN Students part of the pie chart, which are filled but not due for payment until August 31 and will therefore be made available to everyone if they remain unpaid after this deadline.
Can I transfer my slot to someone else?
We will allow transfer of slots between September 1 to 15 ONLY.
We will not be able to transfer slots after that.
Will there be food served?
Snacks will be served. We recommend that the attendees have breakfast and/or heavy lunch before going to the event.
Is there a dress code?
Yes. Wear something casual and comfortable, so you can move freely and mingle around.
Your most comfortable jeans, top, and sneakers are recommended.
FC shirt/uniform and other shirts/accessories that will define your affiliation,
including shirts that define the year when you became a fan, will not be allowed
in the spirit of neutrality and equality amongst everyone.
Sleepwear, gym attire, skimpy attire, and flip flops are not allowed.
Violators of the dress code will not be allowed entry or will be escorted out of the venue.
What can I expect from this event?
ADN Homecoming will be a fun, interactive event.
Expect lots of bonding moments with your fandom friends, old and new.
Be ready to move a lot and mingle.
It will be a family reunion of sorts with fun games and activities where everyone can join, AlDub/MaiChard related merchandise and exhibit booths, music, dancing, and other surprises.
