Bob Gray:
When can we register on line and can we still use PayPal .

KB [us5219]:
There WILL be online registration available.  Its not up yet, because I am trying to make sure I don't make any mistakes. :-[  Contrary to popular belief, I am not a web-guy, and it takes me double or triple the time of a qualified individual to make things happen. 
I was hoping to have it up at the same time the next Runner Tracks is released.

Mike Miller:
Facebook is not the official notice board for the 2016 NA's.

This is Kent Bakers post:

The hotline page is the official notification center for the 2016 DN North American Championships.
Please bookmark in your smart phone, tablet or computer.

Additionally, we will try when possible to give a BREIF summary update on the hotline (810)328-3660 or 810 FAT DN 60.
Lengthy specifics, such as hotel information will likely not be available on the hotline due to short recording periods.

Facebook is not the official medium for informing competitors, but may be used to inform or entertain the public.

Please bear in mind if travel takes us through Canada or remote locations, cellular or internet connections will be sparse.

The next notification will be on or before Wednesday evening 2/17/2016 @ 10:00 PM
