| Registration Procedure for the 2017 Juarez Canyon Contest
There are 26 spots for the contest, and due to the popularity of the contest, there will be a special sign up procedure for 23 of the spots. Three spots have been reserved for the teams who are directly involved in organizing and putting on the contest. The registration will take place beginning on Tuesday, July 25, 2017 at 7:00pm PDT, on the PNWBA Forum, under “PNWBA Events Roll Calls/Juarez Canyon – Oregon City, OR.”
The registration form, and information about the contest will be made available on the PNWBA website before July 25, so you have time to look it over.
After 7:00pm on July 25th, you will need to post your head cook’s name and team name in the forum. (The person posting does not need to be the head cook named, but should be a regular team member. Only one team may register per post.) This will create a time stamped list of the teams that wish to sign up for this contest. We will create a confirmed list of teams in order of sign up, and at that point you have 48 hours to make payment by Pay Pal or check, and submit a registration form to firstname.lastname@example.org, or by mail. (See below.) If you do not submit your payment and registration form after 48 hours, you will be removed from the confirmed list, and your spot will be made available to the first team on the waiting list.
The first 23 dated and time stamped posts will be entered onto the confirmed list. If you are interested in the event and 23 teams are already on the confirmed list, still post your name and team name. The wait list will be created in order of post date and time.
Payments and Registration forms sent in by Postal Mail
If you wish to pay by check, and/or mail in your registration form, we suggest that you mail your check and/or registration form by around July 19th. This way we will receive your letter in time. Every team is held to the same “48 hours to pay” rule, regardless of payment method. We will not cash your check if you are not on the confirmed list. We will hold your check if you are on the waiting list, and we will return your check to you if you do not ultimately wind up on the confirmed list. If your team is from Canada, we highly recommend using Pay Pal and email to submit your payment and registration, due to the uncertainty in cross-border mail service delivery times.
The mailing address for checks and paper registration forms is:

Withdrawing from the Contest
If you need to withdraw from the contest after registering and making payment, we will apply your registration to a future full-service contest at the PNWBA Board of Directors discretion. Your spot will then be offered to the next team on the waiting list. Any withdrawals from the contest made after 5:00pm PDT on Monday, August 28, 2017 will not receive a refund or a carryover to a future contest. Requests to withdraw should be sent to treasurer@PNWBA.com.
The team’s head cook as registered for the contest, must be at the contest. There are no pass downs, or giving or selling your spot to other teams, outside of the official registration process.
In case of an internet disruption, those teams who have posted will still hold their place, and the registration will continue on as the posts are logged. If you encounter website errors while signing up in the forum, continue trying to sign up. You are not considered signed up until your name and team name are shown on the forum as a time stamped post.
