<====It's a fishing lure! No.....it's a piece of a dashboard from a gay guys '77 Trans Am!......no! It's a token of love from the Lincoln Crew!
Well, we're right in the middle of the registration for Trans Iowa V5 and the veteran's section of the process is over. Now we are moving on to the open registration, and with less than half the roster spots left open, I imagine the avalanche of cards received today and tomorrow will likely fill that roster out to capacity.
It is also highly likely that some more creative delivery means will be employed along with some unique cards. I have been getting hammered with e-mails concerning the ways and means of post card delivery. I'll clue you in, it looks as though the USPS is going to get a run for it's money! Speaking of money............
<==== Love: It always comes at a price it would seem!
I have also been informed that more than a few of you hopeful T.I.V5 starters have sent in post cards that are in limbo yet. Sent days ago but having not arrived at T.I.V5 Registration Central. Well, all I can say is you have today's mail, and if it doesn't show up today, well.......
That's hard, because you guys and gals out there won't get the update until late tonight, giving you only one last shot at an overnight express mailing to see if there is still room on Wednesday. That's taking a chance that the roster doesn't fill out on Tuesday. One good thing: Overnight mail ins from USPS, UPS, and Fed Ex come in before the regular mail. First come, first served. Or you could find some local willing to hand deliver a card, like a couple of Michigan dudes, or like the guy with the pizza did. I am not encouraging this, just saying: Where there is a will, there is a way. You've been advised!
Finally if the roster does fill out, you will have a shot on the Waiting List. People eventually drop off the roster throughout the winter, so it isn't out of the question that a person in the Waiting List could make it over to the official roster at some point during the next two or three months.
All I can say is that this has been the most intense registration session since the Rogue 7 incident from T.I.V2's online registration fiasco. Fun stuff for me.......nerve wracking for you!
Look for a roster update tonight, until then.......................
