To get directions to school - MAP

1. We had to move to an online registration since nobody is available to take over the phone registrations. The attendees will fill out a form and select the classes they want along with their lunch selection. 

2. We are asking for the lunch to be paid upfront so the minimum donation was changed to $16. The justification is to help reduce the amount of food that is left over after the seminar and wasted money purchasing the food, soda, etc.

3. Additional payment methods have been added. Attendees can now pay via PayPal through the online registration. 

4. Check payments will now go to Hartley's Hawgs and sent to Karl's address. The reason for this is due to the fact that Hartley's can transfer the money over to Walnut Springs. 

5. We will have a booth at the Columbus Fishing Expo. Folks can register for the event at the booth.
