Joining the 19th is an easy process.
Attend three events. Period equipment will be provided. Do bring the following items: Blankets or sleeping bag, toiletries, food (at some events we have food available for a nominal amount)
At the end of three events if you feel that the 19th is the right place for you request membership.
A vote is taken on your request.
If voted in you have 18 months to equip yourself with period gear. The cost of this equipment is in the $800 dollar range.
