2015 '49er Rally

Setting my plans up for this, the website for the rally says nothing about registering at the gate, just $61 pre-reg. Any one know whether we can just register when we get there and what the cost is?...

Pop it out, and put it back in

might work after that. Sometimes these things just want a little attention.
