General registration will open April 21st (just after midnight on April 20th for you night-owls) or as soon thereafter as we have adequate Trip Organizers signed up. Trip Organizers who have been approved to lead trips for the Event will be able to register earlier.
To successfully register you will need to sign into your OOPS member account.
Please note that Level 1 trips cannot be guaranteed .
If an event registration category is sold out, please use the waitlist option to be placed in the queue for possible registration. You do not need to pay the registration fee to join the waitlist; you will only pay it if you complete the registration process once you're notified that there is an opening.
