  • You excitedly, run down to the registration venue the day before the event
  • You cross your fingers and hope that there are late entry spots available (you prepare for the worst case scenario that there might not be…you will take the rejection like a man if you need to)
  • If there are late places available you will then ‘jump for joy’ and complete the late entry form
  • You will now smile nicely to the Angels as you hand over your entry form and payment (cash or cheque only)
  • The Angels will process your registration and approve your entry thus empowering you to enter the event.
