We are looking forward to STL Day on the Runway and we hope you are too. Below is information on parking options for the event and some general reminders. Please share this important information with your team members.
Waivers and Team Registration
· As the team captain you are responsible for collecting all of your teams FedEx waivers and turning them in at event registration by the large FedEx plane the day of the event.
· Only the team captain or designee should register their team and pick up any t-shirts available the day of the event. We will not register individual participants. You can turn in money the day of the event.
· Your entire team must be present in order to enter into the plane pull line up. You can register your team early, but will not enter the plane pull process until everyone is present.
· If your team is interested in participating to compete in our lowest weight category, your team will be weighed in at the time of registration.
· If you or your team mates registered after April 2 at noon, you are not guaranteed to receive a shirt the day of the event. Shirts will be ordered after the event for those registered after April 2 at noon.
