REGISTRATION NOTES:

If you do not close out your shopping cart and pay, your registration will not be completed and you will NOT have a reserved class seat. You will have the best results when ONE UNIT LEADER makes all the registrations for your unit, rather than each parent registering individually. Units can correct registration errors if all done through the same login. Class space is limited, and we can not make adjustments to full classes to accomodate errors once you arrive at the event. Classes WILL fill-up.
Adult leaders and parents: All scouts must have a parent or Troop leader onsite for the day. Adult leader registrations are FREE. They are just to keep track of who will be on-site to oversee their Troop. They do not include lunch.  Adult lunches may be pre-ordered under the "Products" tab at checkout.
Rosters: After checking out with multiple scouts, print your unit roster from the "Reports" button. If you make class changes or add/ delete scouts later, reprint a new one. Bring this roster to the event to help your scouts find the right class.
TO ELIMINATE CHECK-IN DELAYS, THERE WILL BE NO ROSTERS GIVEN ON EVENT DAY PRIOR TO CLASS. Read the Leader Guide for full details.
