8 May Found out that the on line registrations apparently are coming from runners going direct to active.com. There is now a good link from the race web page. See the "register on line block. May have to pay someone for this next year.
2 May Online registration has been working. Pre-registered are shown on a link from the home page. If you have registered, on line or by mail, it ay take a few days for your name to apprear. This part is manual. Also like to check when possible to fill in information that is omitted on the form. Usual missing items are event designation and shirt size.
24 April Registrations on line are down. Last year 236 at this point. This year there are 83 and that is behid the hard coopy entries. Not sure if this means a smaller crowd or runners just delaying entry.
24 April Still working on the pre-registered sign up.
17 April There is also a problem displaying the pre-registered combined file. Right now we will have to deal with a long list until I can do something like last year which worked well.
17 April There are some issues with active.com registration. The data is all being captured. The problem is getting it all to display and display correctly. If you register on line your confirmation may have last year's confirmation text. Should be fixed now. For awhile we lost all first names from the display.
