    How to register?

    xxxxxx

    I understand that I could save a few bucks by registering for the MOA Rally in advance. I have looked over the MOA webpage and can find no form to register.
    Can I not register on line? If not, how do I get the registration form?
    Thanks much,
    Craig

    I too was looking all over the site for a place to register. I finally found some information saying that the registration online would start up in April. See you there.

    After April 1, you will be able to register through the Country Store.

    The pre-registration forms will be in the April, May, and June BMW Owners News. In addition, on April 1rst we will start taking pre-registrations on-line on the main rally web site.

    Thanks for planning ahead!

    Angry No point in pre-registering

    In Spokane, I pre-registered only to have to wait in line for almost two hours when the non pre-registered line was a mere 10 minutes at the least and 20 minute wait at the most. More time was spent finding filed registration forms than processing people. I will take my chances and not pre-register this year.

    By pre-registering it helps the club know how many people are coming and how many supplies to bring in. Sorry to hear about the wait, but remember that it is all volunteer staffing. I do know that the Board is looking at ways to streamline it.

    Brad, if the committee is looking for ways to shorten the pre-registration process, there are some very simple things they could do. One is to use a simple computer print-out instead of pulling the original application from the file to admit the "pre-registered" attendee. That alone would save many hours and there would be no lines except for the non pre-registered.

    That sounds like an outstanding idea!

    How about mailing the required admittance credentials to those who pre-register instead of making them stand on line? Have a cut-off of June 15 or whatever is reasonable.

    Any handouts that must be distributed at the event itself should be handed to every attendee with a credential. There could be a tear-off or use a hole punch to identify those who have already gotten their allotment of handout stuff.

    Standing in line is a waste of time. Planning to have people do it is not good planning.

    Good idea. One of the things that I like about signing in is that someone knows if I do or do not show up safely.

    No....Lines are not good, not after riding for a day or two.

    Do you have anyone with Bar Code experience?

    Yes, I know they're ugly and smack of Bigger Brotherism, but they might be much faster.
