STARTING ​YOUR ​REGISTRATION: ​With ​your ​first ​registration ​provide ​your ​name ​and ​email ​as ​the ​registrar. ​ ​Online ​registration ​will ​open ​at ​6:00 ​AM ​Monday ​January ​15, ​ ​2018. ​ ​Please ​DO ​NOT ​register ​before ​6AM. ​ ​All ​registrations ​before ​6AM ​are ​automatically ​deleted ​by ​the ​program ​when ​the ​event ​goes ​live. ​We ​have ​no ​control ​over ​this. ​ 

ADULT ​ATTENDANCE: ​Each ​Troop ​MUST ​HAVE ​AT ​LEAST ​TWO ​ADULTS ​registered ​and ​in ​attendance. ​ ​Scouts ​attending ​individually ​must ​have ​an ​adult ​registered ​and ​in ​attendance. ​
