Team members may enclose one check for each team member or combine the total entry fee into one check or money order. Note: all fees listed for registration are per person.

NOTE: Register early enough so that your checks clear the bank prior to Packet Pickup,  2020, or you will have to pay cash or with a money order at Packet Pickup or at the registration table on Event Day. THE LATE FEE APPLIES.

Make sure you print the TEAM CAPTAIN and TEAM NAME on each registration form, that is what will be used to merge your team members together (many individuals are registering separately). It will also be used for computer input, tracking, awards, the newspaper, etc.

Please print neatly. Your info will be used for recording and posting.
