How does Team Packet Pick Up Work? 

  • You must be on a team of 5 or more to participate in this one day team only packet pickup session
  • You need to be registered on a team by September 6, 2013
  • All Team Members will be included in the packet pickup assembly (sorry, no exceptions)
  • You need to send an email to on September 7th, 2013 letting her know you would like to take advantage of the one day packet pick up option – Please include Team Name and the time (from 10am to 8pm) on September 11th that you would like to pick up all the packets.
  • Our team will send you back a list of all team members and time of pick-up for you to confirm


  • If my team is less than 5 can we still participate in Team Packet Pickup on September 11th? Unfortunately no, but rest assured you will still be able to pick up all your team members packets if you’d like between Sept 12th and 14th.
  • Do I need to email if my team is less than 5? No need to unless you have specific questions – Nancy loves to help!
  • What if I have people wanting to join my team after September 6th? The more the merrier! Unfortunately, they will not be included in the team pick up, however, they can still sign up for your team online and can pick up their own packet Sept 12-14
  • If we have a group signing up but we aren’t on a team can we still participate in the team packet pick-up? Unfortunately, team pick up is for registered teams only
  • What if I can’t make the time I originally scheduled to pick up my teams packets? We understand that things come up so just plan on coming in after the time you scheduled and we will have them ready!
  • Can I just have people from my team pick up their own packets? We encourage you to pick up the entire teams packets, but we also undstand this may not work so your team can pick up individually Sept 12-14
