Road Closures

Please be aware that there is construction on 16th at Dunbar, so please avoid 16th Ave between Crown and Dunbar. Also, Dunbar is completely shut between 41st and Marine Dr., and under construction between 16th Ave 41st. Plan ahead for your alternate route!

Delayed Self-Pledge Service

When you sign up for Delayed Self-Pledge service, we’ll extend the date to complete your fundraising until October 13, 2011. When you sign up for this service, we’ll immediately charge your credit card $2.00 which will be credited towards your own fundraising account. After October 13, we’ll check your fundraising total and if you’re still short of the minimum (we know you won’t be!) we’ll charge the balance to your card. You can do it! We know all you need is a little extra time.

Tent Assignments

Once you complete the process through Online Check-In, your tent assignment will be emailed to you on Thursday, August 11. Please watch for this email and be sure to write your tent assignment on your luggage tag and attach it to your gear bag. If you have not received your tent assignment, you can still drop your gear on Saturday morning, and then stop by the tent assignment table. If you have not identified your tent partner in the Online Check-In process, you both will need to be present to sign up for tent assignment line on Saturday morning

Gear assignment is designated by colour this year; so when you pick up your luggage at Camp all you have to do is look for that same colour! Please don’t forget to use your luggage tag and clearly identify your bags.
