Because of COVID-19, the Horsey Hundred Planning Committee made the decision to initially limit registration for the Horsey to 1,000 participants. We are focused on presenting a quality event that is safe, and that complies with all public health guidelines, and given the uncertainty we are facing we believe that limiting the size of our event is prudent.
We reached our 1,000-person cap in just four days and now have a waiting list of people who hope to register later. We will continue to monitor the situation and hope that we will be able to open up more registration slots, but this decision will be made closer to the event so we have as much up to date information as possible with which to make the decision. Our goal is to offer an event that is safe, and that provides the level of volunteer support that our riders have come to expect from us without compromise
Given all of this, here is how our waiting list will work:
1. Removing yourself from the wait list - If you are on our waiting list, we consider that as a commitment you’ve made to attend our event if additional slots open up –so if your plans have changed and you no longer want to be on our waiting list, please either use the option on the bike reg site to delete your waiting list registration or contact us to ask us to remove you from the list. We ask that you take this action as soon as you know you can no longer attend so that our list remains one that includes only those who are committed to attending if the opportunity arises.
2. Registered rider cancellations - If a currently registered individual notifies us that he or she cannot attend the event, his/her slot will be offered to the first individual in the waiting list. We will go down the list until someone takes the slot. Given past cancellations, we do not anticipate that this will happen much, if at all.
3. Opening up more slots - If we do open up additional registration slots, we will send a group e-mail, starting at the top of the waiting list, to the number of people for which we have slots notifying those waiting list registrants that they will be registered for the event unless they take affirmative action to remove themselves from the wait list within a specified grace period. Riders who receive the e-mail will automatically be charged for the event after the identified grace period, and their registrations switched from wait list to full event registration.
Those who receive an e-mail and no longer want to attend the event must take affirmative action to remove themselves from the waiting list by amending their registration or by e-mailing us and asking us to remove them before the grace period expires.
4. Our RV slots are sold out and we have closed our tent camping reservation system since we are now just taking waiting list registrations. If we do open more registration slots,
we will also open the remaining camping spots for purchase on a first come, first served basis until they are filled.
