21 and counting. This is great! The announcement is only a day old and we already have 21 people and 12 cars registered!

Don't forget to fill out 2 registrations if you have a passenger. The first one should have your screen name and the second should have your screen name with "+1" after your screen name. If you and someone else from the forum are riding together put the screen name of the passenger in the field with the screen name or the driver and "+1" in parenthesis.

EXAMPLE: If I was riding with SolsticeWolf I would enter jrarant (SolsticeWolf +1) in the screen name box.
