PAYMENT

      • You also have the option of paying later by check, purchase order, or by paying with a link that will come in a second email. The email will serve as your invoice. The group then has 60 days from the date of registration or by the entry deadline date (whichever comes first) to pay the invoice, or the group will be removed from all events.
      • By submitting the Event Registration entry, you understand it to be a legally binding contract where each group is financially responsible for all fees associated with these entries.
      • If an event you have selected is within two weeks of its registration cutoff, you will be required to pay by credit card. (Bear in mind with last minute registrations that all requirement due dates are still valid CLICK HERE for more details)
