It a really powerful plugin to manage events, including booking an (optional) payments. Alot settings, to customize it, to fit your own needs. And its not an crippled lite-version; it is a great free plugin 🙂 The support in the forum was quick and friendly 🙂

very good plugin really free. Needs time to understand how it works and to configure it but then works very well. I recommend it especially for clubs that want to have a functional registration system without spending too much.
