Don’t Miss Out! Today is the Deadline for Week-long Wristbands



We must have your entry, online waiver, and payment postmarked by April 1 for your registration to be complete.  Signed minor waivers or checks for payment must be postmarked by April 1.  Group contacts must close their group and submit payment postmarked by April 1 if there are any week-long riders in their group.

You can log on to your registration to see if it is complete.  For individuals, when you log on you will be on your individual home page.  Under “your status” all 4 boxes will be checked with green check marks and it will say “Your entry is finalized” if your registration is complete.  For group contacts, when you log on you will be on your group home page.  Under “your status” all 4 boxes will be checked with green check marks and under “group status” the group closed box will be checked and the vehicles requested box will be checked if you requested a vehicle pass and it will say “Your group entry is finalized” if everything is complete.  For groups or minor individuals, even if you close the group and pay online, it will not show finalized until all minor waivers are received and processed.

Day pass rider online registration will be open through June 1.  Your day wristband packet will be mailed to you before the ride.

If you are having difficulties, please review these HELP documents:

That is the perennial question and there is usually a lively and somewhat entertaining discussion in the forums every year.

I requested a vehicle pass but my group has yet to iron out the details of our transportation…registered as a car but that could change to an RV. Will we be admitted to camping areas if the vehicle type is not the same as listed on my pass?
