I tried using the e-mail above and it was sent back to me as "message delivery failure." I want to be sure that I am registered on the 16th. I am also still debating between taking the DRZ400 or the F800GS with fresh TKC's.

I'm a club member. Let me contact the organization folks and see if there's a communications problem with the e-mail.

E-mail system doesn't seem to be working for me either.

I bought a ticket last year and ended up not being able to go, broke my hand. At the time I emailed about a possible refund and was told I could get a credit for the following year.

Have sent several emails, inquiring about the credit to attend this year, no response.
