Don’t use the entry forms!

Another milestone has been reached in the countdown to the start of the 2008 Clerical Medical Parish Walk. You can now download most of the usual documents for the website or even directly from here:

Entry form
Team entry
Sponsor form

But I would urge you to enter online directly from the website for the following reasons:

Your entry is immediately acknowledged by email.

The list of entries is in real time and so it adds to the information available to everyone to see your name immediately added to the list.

You don’t have to post your entry.

You have responsibility for your own personal details and they don’t have to be typed by anyone else.

The cheques do not have to be reconciled and banked.

You can enter any time day or night.

The data can be transferred directly to the results database.

You can receive free text messages keeping you up to date.

You can arrange for your helpers or families to receive text messages containing your time within seconds of you passing each church.

There can be absolutely no argument that you have entered (every year someone claims to have sent an entry that didn’t arrive and in nearly every case the reason was the same – it was never sent!)

The organisers wanted to maintain the traditional entry method for a final year but, although I introduced the idea in 1990 of sending an entry pack to all of the previous year’s entrants, I think that it will be totally wasteful this year to do so.

Prove the point. Help the environment, help the organisers, help yourself and help those that enjoy seeing the list of entrants online – ENTER ONLINE TODAY.

If you haven’t already discovered it on the front page of the website, you can check the latest list of entrants here:

Go on, get that credit or debit card out now and add your name to the list:
