Have you registered and paid? Since registration is now closed, if you haven't registered it may not matter, but there is a note on the website to email [email protected]
to see if they can accommodate you.
Registration is normally required to participate in group evens like runs, tours, the car show, etc. and, of course, the banquet.
You will get a "swag bag" of registration materials, probably with some memorabilia, maps, instructions, etc.
As far as the registration fee is concerned, it pays for putting on the event.
* I registered too long ago to remember, but I think that about half of the fee ($35 +/-) is for the banquet, so the rest pays for everything else.
* The hotel charges for use of meeting and registration space.
* ID badges, signs, and informational material all cost money, as do some general supplies needed to make things happen.
* Anything left over is donated to the selected charities, so no one is putting anything in their pockets.
Showing up without registering basically means you are free-loading on the time, effort, and money that others have contributed, so I hope you have registered, or will.
