Jonas Champlain Any chance the registration date could be reconsidered? The registration is during the Lower Deschutes mini.

Chris Casciola Yes, that is completely my fault. I updated the reg date to the following monday the 27th. Good catch. Apologize for that.

Chris Casciola Hey all… i am trying to keep all registrations uniform from comp to comp but a few people have emailed me asking to adjust the comp registration time to early evening due to not being able to step away from work during day which is completely fair. I do not want registration time to be a blocker to anyone signing up.

That said, in addition to moving date… im going to adjust the time to early evening so that no one has tk worry about work conflicts. Thanks all!
