They can't be too firm, because they never know who actually shows up until just before the event. Jerry posted yesterday he expects this to be a record turnout. He told me he'll accept 50 deposits for guaranteed starting spots, hoping that will produce 30-40 starters. Much more than 40 starters will be tough to accommodate, though. Just getting enough rooms could be a challenge in some places. Then there are the chase vehicle capacity issues to consider.
In any event, none of us want to be on a stand-by list, so best to secure a spot now.
Jerry is a pretty laid back rallymaster. He has a few strict competition rules, but he generally leaves it to us to sort out the grey areas among ourselves. It usually takes a couple stages before all of us figure things out. Its pretty fun that way. In any event, I am sure he'll be flexible with the deposits like he is with other administrative things.
