🎶  Group Registration/Payments 

 

In the past few years you have been able to register and pay as a group.  At this time, paying as a group looks a little different, but in the words of Bob Marley,

"Don't worry about a thing 'cause every little thing gonna be all right"  

If your Agency (CAC, Police Dept., County, etc) is paying for a group, please share this link with the person responsible for making the payment.
