After you register for a trip you will need to followup with a good faith deposit. For major trips this is $100.

Should you need to drop from the trip
this covers your Training Partner fee.
Checks are preferred or cash (but only if in an envelope with your name, trip and date) handed to Coach Gunn or dropped into the Jog Pot. Checks can also be mailed.
Credit/Debit cards can be used with a processing fee added. Not online (yet), for now you must call our accounting
Available spots fill according to date of registration and deposit. We fill vacancies from a wait list also by date of registration and deposit. NOTE: We use registration date so long as deposit is paid within 2 weeks. If not the payment date applies.
To remain in good standing you must be ready to fill a vacancy. You must keep up your training and payments as if you are on the trip for sure.
