Hey all, thanks for the interest! We're working on setting up the coding for a new online registration for the clinic - should be up soon. The info on on the clinic itself is in Tony's first post in this thread.

We are still working out some final details of the online registration process (how the registration form works, how the data is collected & presented to the clinic coordinators, etc) & should be done very soon!
But, in the meantime - if you're interest in participating in the clinic, but you are not already a WVWA member or current on your dues for 2015 - you can get ahead a step in the process by JOINing / RENEWing now! (All WVWA Clinic students must be WVWA Members & you will need to login in order to register for the clinic.)
Ok Toney, putting in the leave slip now. Will help as I did last year. I officially request to be paired up with Big Jim McClure again! He's a blast, way too much fun to boat with. Still,,, I think we did a good job last year.
Noticed the club calendar has the beginner clinic listed as Upper New ? Is it still Greenbrier ?
It has always been the Upper New, so when Tony let me know he had decided on the dates, I got it up on the calendar with the same information as usual. We're working on a brand-new only registration & payment system for the clinic which is going to be really cool. Almost have all the the kinks worked out & will be rolling it out soon! I have update the Club Calender though to say the Greenbrier though.
we're on the greenbrier this year, sorry about the confusion- like you I'm waiting for the website to be updated
Sorry it's taking so long — there's some behind-the-scenes coding for that is required for the database & some trouble-shooting to make sure everything is working correctly. We almost have it worked out! This is exciting that we're going to have this new online registration/payment system for clinics now!!
Thanks for everyone's patience as we integrate this new online registration/payment system. Thanks for your interest as well — you'll be able to register for the clinic very soon!

The wait is over... the Brand New online Clinic Registration process is now available!!!
Please see the link in the 1st post in this thread to register!!!
Chuck Brabec & I worked hard to create an awesome online registration process! This will streamline clinic registration — it makes it faster, easier, & just plain awesome-er!! Also, the lead clinic instructors will now have an easily accessible online list of all the registered students & be able to click on each student to view the registration form they submitted - so cool! No more mailing in registration forms that take a while to get there & can be hard to read, hard to track, & hard to organize. We are SO excited about this. Enjoy!

Matt hopefully we won't have to drag our way down the first weekend in June and we look forward to your help but there are no guarantees. Grayson We've had the opposite problem on the New River- too much water at times.
Brandon, your help would be awesome. We need a local to keep us straight. The trailer could be a real plus.
