MEMBERSHIP RENEWAL INFORMATION

If you are a full card member you can as of July 21 (new season begins) get a new qualification card and begin qualifying. If you membership is renewed prior to September 1 all jackpots between July 21 -Sept 1 will count. All CARDS (permits included) must be renewed prior to September 1. All existing cards can be shown until September 1 for insurance purposes. The reason being is we are very busy with finals entries at this time of year and memberships are not our priority until we can get all entries in and the draw completed. In order to help everyone get there cards bought prior to September 1 we are going to have a membership table at the finals you will be able to make payment and fill out your form and be placed in a draw for 10 free memberships. The only catch in this is if you are a PERMIT holder who wishes to now become a FULL Card Member you will need to send your card in right away in order to start qualifying right away. Hope this helps answer all questions!
