Hi Everyone,

 
Hope you are well!
 
I've been in contact with Gary Lodge.
 
The issue with PayPal not connecting when pre-registering for the 2017 Sunday Davis Car Show has now been fixed!
 
We apologize for any inconvenience.
 
---
 
If you have yet to pre-register, you can do so here:
 
---
 
If you already pre-registered and experienced the PayPal issues:
 
Gary Lodge and Nels Berg are attempting to get in contact with everyone that pre-registered before the event via the e-mail address you entered in the registration form.
 
The Sunday Davis Car Show registration forms were going through-- it is just a matter of arranging / coordinating payment.
 
Depending on your preference, you can either pay via PayPal before the event, or at the gate on the day of the event.

---
 
If you prefer to pay via PayPal before the event, please send me (Elizabeth Brown) an e-mail and I will forward it to Gary Lodge:
 
Contact Us, Attention: Elizabeth Brown at:
http://davis.sacvolvoclub.org/contact-us

If you prefer to pay at the gate on the day of the event, your name will be added to a list at the gate.
 
(Although you may also consider bringing your current receipt to confirm your pre-registration discount, just in case).

---
 
If you have any further questions, please let us know.
 
We look forward to seeing you on the 30th!
 
Take care,
