Not everyone has yet registered their racers. The deadline for registration is Nov 15, however, I would like everyone to register online by October 31 with the payment deadline being Nov 15. Racer Account cheques are also due in order to complete your registration. There will be a $50 late fee charged to all racers who do not have their registration complete, including all cheques in the hands of Trevor, Sonya Jezik or Kim McCuaig by November 15th, no exceptions.

Payment for registration can be paid online with a credit card, cheque or eTransfer before November 15.
