Registration for 2021 is to be determined!

With the prolonged uncertainty of COVID-19, TWAS has yet to determine an opening day for registration. As the date gets closer, we will have a better idea of the possibilities for this anticipated event. Please keep an eye on our social media pages in the coming months for updates.

Thank you for always supporting the Animals.
