Thanks for the heads up. I'll email all of the members soon with the general info... most of them are not active on this forum.

Just a heads up for those of you traveling from outside the immediate area, we plan on having plenty of help during the check in period to expedite things, and to have a 1:00 hard start. If you arrive after 12:30 you will automatically be placed in the last picking group.

I know it sounds harsh, but it's not fair for those people that made the effort to show up on time. Also, we're making a concerted effort to keep timing smooth, and those that show late cut into the BODs time, and those are the people running the event, which makes for a late start.

We're all looking forward to a great swap, and a fun gathering of friends!

Allright! Tomorrow is the big day! That means today is the last day to prepay for entry. Save yourself a couple of bucks and preregister.

We ask that registration be completed by tonight at 5:00PM to ease the last minute burden on Bryan. We will be accepting prepays until 9:00PM for those of you that can't access PayPal during the earlier hours, earlier registration is preferred.

See you at the swap!!
