SESSION CAPA session may close before the scheduled closure day due to the cap for that session being reached. If this occurs, the registrant will be placed on a wait-list. Should a slot open, the registrant will be contacted before the entry is moved from the wait-list to an active status.
WAIT-LISTING Wait-lists will go into effect once the rower cap has been reached for that session. This may occur before the close date for the session. Register early to better ensure a seat in a boat. Check the invoice. If it says wait-listed, the debit or credit card HAS NOT been charged. The charge will not occur until after the rower has been moved from the wait-list. An email message will be sent before moving the rower from wait-listed to active status.
