The sign up procedure for getting on a GNRS team has under gone several incarnations since the hunt's inception. During the first two years of the hunt, sign-up was done live over the internet. However, due to the popularity of the hunt, team positions will be filled by a raffle. Registration for this raffle will take place online at The Treasure Depot GNRS Forum.
The captains registration is for everyone interested and will not count against your chance for a spot on a team of choice. However you may only register once and for only one team. Please post your response to Larry Cissna's captain signup post with your full name and the team you wish to be captain of in the subject line of your reply. One special note about being a team captain. If you make team captain, it will be your responsibility to make sure all GNRS information gets to everyone on your team. It will be your responsibility to make sure the GNRS knows of any absentees right up to the opening ceremonies before the first day of the hunt. It is highly recommended to know the machine well of the team you are trying for.
For the regular team sign-up you will only be allowed to signup for one team this year and only have one chance for registering for the drawing, you also can not sign up for another person unless OK'ed in advance with the comittee, and only if that person has internet capability and is just unavailable for the signup. We would like everyone on the teams to have their own email addresses and internet capabilty. Anyone caught signing up more then one person without prior permission will have those names as well as their own withdrawn from the lottery.
You must post with your real full name (no internet nick names) in the subject line of the reply to Larry Cissna's signup post, and a enter valid email address in the email box or your entry will not be used..
Its very important your full name and team you are trying for must be
in the subject line in the reply to Larry Cissna's sign-up post!.. If they
not your entry will not be counted
When Larry Cissna makes the post open his post and click reply, then erase the words preloaded into the subject line and type in your full name. this way we can see all the posters full names without opening the posts..
Larry Cissna prints out the list of replies which shows the subject lines only and this is what he uses to draw the names for the raffle, so if your name is not there your entry wont get in. be sure you enter a valid email address in the regular place in the reply as after the drawing this is where we will get that info.. no good email no spot on a team!
