To our mushers who registered on Saturday November 6th: You should by now have received both your confirmation email and your receipt emails from notifications@copperdog150.com. Please check your spam folders as it is possible the emails ended up there. For those who still need to register, our automated registration system is back and operational.

The problem was two fold. An "http" needed to be "https" and the notification button in PayPal got turned off (Hey! who turned off the lights!).All better now.
