Online Payment Option for Musher Registration

 

Starting on January 23rd 2015, we added an online payment option to our musher registration form. This allows mushers to register online and pay through PayPal or their credit card.  In the past Mushers had to mail in their registration payment or show up in person Friday evening to ensure placement in the bib draw which is made Friday evening at 8pm.  

By paying online (or mailing in their cheque) mushers are now able to register and be placed in the bib draw with out having to show up early on Friday evening.  Mushers who register in person can still register until 8am on the Saturday of race day but they will be placed after the mushers who were in the bib draw Friday evening.

Louise was actually our first musher to make her registration payment online using our new online payment form.  We asked Louise what she though of the online payment option and she had the following comment. 

I love the online registration! This is much more efficient than filling out the paperwork and hoping it gets there in time. I also like how you personalize with a little bit of a story.
