The system says I can't register until I pay my balance. Why?
Our records indicate you have not paid for past registrations. We used to provide registrants the option to pay later. If you think there is an error, please reach out to our Treasurer, Mike Gordon by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org. You may be asked to provide proof of payment, either cancelled check or system email stating payment was made. We realize this may cause families a financial burden. We can arrange three equal monthly payments planned for 4/1, 5/1 and 6/1.
