I'm kidding really. But this is frustrating. I've been trying to register for the Indiana ABATE beginning riding course for 3 years now here in Indy. I waited all winter with the date they would begin taking registrations for this summer--was FINALLY going to get in there. Marked on the calendar and everything.
The process this year: Cannot register online. You print out the registration with your top 3 class choices (by weekend) and mail it in. (A DEvolution, of sorts, in my opinion). Well, I did that the first week registration was open and I got my letter and check back in the mail today telling me those dates are already full. Now that it's been a couple of weeks later since I first tried to register, I guess mailing ANOTHER letter in with 3 MORE dates will be pretty much hopeless. I doubt the classes are EMPTYING as time goes by.
I've never had formal basic rider training and 15,000 miles of riding later, doesn't look like I'm going to get it anytime soon--ugh!
PS---And if you are here and work for IN ABATE, the new system of registering is horrendous--why not let people register online like previous years? What with all the paper and snail mail?
just a rant...i feel better now. well, not really.
