One option that many people have requested is the ability to register and pay on this web site, and I absolutely agree that this is a useful option to have. I apologize to the 90 riders who registered already, but I have figured it out and have changed the registration and payment process to make it easier and more efficient for future signups. Riders do not have to download a form, fill it out, scan it or take a picture of it and then email or snail mail it to me anymore. You also don’t have to write a check or go visit another website to pay the registration fee.
The website now features a link at the bottom of the Rules & Registration page (I put it there to encourage riders to review the rules before registering). Click the button and the rider is taken to a registration page where all the pertinent information is entered into an online form. Note – none of your personal information is stored on this website. Your personal information is sent to me and stored elsewhere.
After answering the questions and submitting their registration, the rider is sent to a payment page where they have the ability to select how they would like to pay (PayPal or credit card processed by PayPal). You do not need to have a PayPal account to use this option. PayPal just handles the transaction and sends the money to the rally. Can you send the payment through the mail? Yes, that will remain an option for those not comfortable with online payments. Instructions will be provided on the payment page.
Once registration is submitted and payment is made, the rally will send a confirmation email with rider number and additional information. This is going to make life more simple for all of us!
