Registration for the event will begin at 7:30 pm and will conclude at 8:00 pm when the rally begins. At 10:00pm, teens and leaders will head to SkateZone71 and will remain there for the rest of the night. The night will end at 1:00am.
The cost this year for pre-registration is $22 and $25 at the door. Pre-register by calling 614-274-2687 ext. 204 or e-mail
Keep in mind that the early registration saves $3.00 per teen at $22.00 each. The deadline for early registration is Thursday, April 30th. When pre-registering, please have a guaranteed number of teens and send the names of each teen along with ONE check for those that are pre-registered BEFORE the lock-in to BFLCO,3417 Palmetto Street, Columbus Ohio 43204. Those who register after April 30th will be required to pay $25.00 at the door.
Each church should have at least one or two leaders who can provide transportation from Fellowship Baptist Church to SkateZone71, and then assist the BFLCO staff in supervising activities at SkateZone. It is important to maintain a good testimony with the staff, and supervision is necessary for this.
Leaders in attendance at SkateZone will pay the same registration fee as the teens IF they want to skate, play videos games, and do laser tag. As a leader, if you do not want to participate in the activities, your attendance is free. HOWEVER, if you want to eat pizza and drink soda then the cost is $5.00. When registering, please make clear what your leaders plan to do.
Rally Attendance Requirement
As in years past, attendance to the Rally is REQUIRED for admittance to Skate Zone. There will be no exceptions to this rule. The rally is such a crucial part of the evening and we feel it is important for every teen to attend. We understand however, that some teens may need to leave SkateZone before 1:00 am. In order to do so, we will need written permission from the parent or guardian of that teen. This letter of permission needs to be presented to a member of the BFLCO at registration in order for any teen to be allowed to leave.
Diaper Wipes Drive Contest
New contest this year. The MRC is collecting diaper wipes this year. The church with the most percentage of wipes per teen will be awarded extra tokens for SkateZone.
Finally, the Lock-In will conclude at 1:00 am at SkateZone. Teens will need to be picked up at this time. Again, if you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact Gina Shimer, BFLCO Executive Secretary, at 614-274-2687 ext. 204 or via e-mail at
