Don't worry, online registration isn't opening until December 1 (wait, that's coming up quick...).
We've always had the "unofficial" option of paying by check when you register, but mostly just for friends and family. Many people don't like using PayPal, however (even if they have an account), so we're going to try an experiment and allow payment by check when you register online. How does this work? When you check out, check, uh, the "Pay by check" box and then (this is the important part) mail us a check at the address on that page.
Although your registration will get into our system and you'll be added to the roster, you will NOT be officially registered until we deposit your payment. Payments must be postmarked before any price increases in order to get those savings.
Checks help us out, too. PayPal's transaction fee is 2.9% + $0.30 per order, which is built into the registration for each race. Those fees add up over several hundred orders a year, so any savings there, we like to use to keep race prices low.
