We cop crap all the time for not using bobchat and the latest instaperve, but if you cover as many as you can reasonably do it will help keep the naysayers a little quieter

OK, on July 1 we will be opening up via the IPRASA website a registration for entries.

This will be a financial commitment of $500 to the event. This will be deducted from your total entry once entry forms are released.

There will be 3 pricing structures depending on what you would like (Pit Garage, Paddock Garage or Paddock Marquee), these prices will be released on the day.

Registrations will only be considered complete, once payment has been received, which will be via EFT, and details will be in the email sent upon completion of the online form.

so, keep an eye on http://www.iprasa.org.au/nationals for the opening of registrations.

won't be closing them as such, will just roll them in to the entries. But we would like to know ASAP if you are in. Entries will probably close about 8 weeks out so we can finalise he marquee numbers and the other items we need to have sorted for the meeting.

Are there going to be Entry deposit confirmation lists / updates for the biggest IP event of the decade, maybe even ever?

Yes, we do plan on releasing an list at some stage, we are only a week in to deposits being done, so was going to give some more time for this to increase.

Currently we are below half of the number of EOI's that we received. If this remains we will have to do a lot of readjusting to make the event happen as we planned.

Under 2L numbers are the biggest problem and are well short of having a grid. This will mean we will have to combine grids and limit entry numbers for overs, which we certainly do not want to do.

Given you have less than 50% from EIO enterted
When will you open it up to those who did not put in an EIO

I may be able to entice 2 who did not put EIO ‘s in to enter ??

What’s the go guys? 190ish EOI and only 94 confirmed entries.
Arguably the best permanent track in Australia and nobody seems to want to go. At 94 entries I would expect only 2 combines grids.
Is that what we all want?

Maybe people are waiting for their state rounds to conclude before they enter?

Where is the entry list Bruce?

Some of us will be there but just need to wait for other things to confirm, like payday

No entry list has been published. May do once registrations close, which I have just been informed will be at the end of the month, as we need to commit to things such as Marquees. Not sure what is going to happen once registrations close, if we will then accept "late" registrations as such.
