We will trade time spent in the bootcamp for tickets to our events.
Typically, we trade about two months in the bootcamp for a two week event, like our PDC. But if you sign up super early, the trade might be closer to a month and a half. And if you sign up just before the event starts (if there are any spots left) it might be closer to three months.
I think the important part is to put time into the bootcamp first and when you have enough time put in, then you can arrange a trade.
Some people want to try to get into the bootcamp on the exact day that would give them the exact amount for the trade. This has worked out great for some people - back when we didn't have a waiting list for the bootcamp. But even then, some people had stuff happen and they had to check out of the bootcamp for bit, so they didn't have enough for a trade when the event started.
I think the smart work trader will put their time into the bootcamp well before the event starts. Maybe put some time in the bootcamp the summer before the events you want to attend. Or the winter before - we usually have more open spots in the winter.
Get on the waiting list now, get your work part of the trade in early, and then pick the best events at your liesure.
